Nigerians are suffering, Buhari must stop needless foreign trips, US trip is “joke of the year” - Fayose

Read the press statement below...
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has called on well-meaning Nigerians to prevail on President Mohammadu Buhari to stop his needless foreign trips, describing the president’s trip to the United States of America on Wednesday for the 4th Nuclear Security Summit while Nigerians are suffering at home as “joke of the year.”
The governor said “it remains a mystery what President Buhari that met power generation at 6,000MW and could not manage it such that power generation crumbled to Zero Megawatt yesterday, will contribute to the Nuclear Energy Summit in America.”

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said “it is shameful that while President Buhari was far away in the United States of America, attending a summit that does not have any bearing on Nigeria and its people, an unprecedented happened - power generation stopped completely for over three hours!”

He said the sufferings of Nigerians deserved the attention of the president instead of junketing around the world, wasting the country’s scarce foreign exchange. The governor alleged that over $50 million must have been spent on the president’s frequent foreign trips, adding that Nigerians should ask President Buhari whether his trip to the United States of America to attend Nuclear Energy Summit will bring the lingering fuel scarcity being experienced in the country to an end.

“Nigerians are suffering. Petrol has become so scarce that our people now sleep in petrol stations to buy fuel at N200 per litre while the president who should alleviate their sufferings is in the USA, attending a summit that he won’t even understand whatever that is discussed there. “This is not acceptable. Mr President should stay at home and see to it that at least, power generation returns to 6,000MW that he met it if he cannot add to it.

 “Mr President should stay at home and bring this fuel scarcity that has paralysed almost all activities in the country to an end. “Nigerians are saying their president should stay at home and bring to an end the killings, raping of women and destruction of farmlands by Fulani herdsmen.

“Most importantly, the President should listen more to those of us who criticise him instead of those hailing every of his wrong steps either because of what they intend to gain or for fear of persecution,” the governor said.

towmeelee said...

I would never be a PDP supporter, infact I detest them for their looting and corruption but to be candid Jonathan can not shoulder the blame of 16 years PDP reign....He was only President for 5+ years and he did his best...He had good intentions but very poor execution....Buhari is out of touch with governance, he doesn't know how to touch the common man or at least appease him when he's angry....This fuel scarcity has been lingering since November last year, the naira has plummeted against the dollar and everything is unbelievably expensive, there has been no power supply and even the investors are scared to make any meaningful investment in the country. Yet, the President doesn't care, he wants to fight the perceived corrupt politicians forgetting his primary assignment of making the electorate happy....Nigerians are suffering and I'm really disappointed in anyone who voted for this man. He is arrogant, he is out if touch, he is a dictator and he has forgotten this is 2016 and not 1984!! Things have changed, people are wiser now and you can't be a King Cesar in this modern world...You have to listen, you have to improvise, you have to bend, you have to close your eyes on some "little things" so you can focus on something bigger...

I can't agree more with Fayose, it may hurt but that's the simple truth. Again this is what you get when your leader is a cattle rearer/ power monger/ clueless. It's a shame!
Thank you Fayose for voicing out. Posterity will not judge you. Unlike other activist who seems quiet for fear of favour......#Godblessnigeria.

Badmos,why are u crucifying Fayose now for criticising PMB ? APC said more terrible things to Jonathan & d world did not come to an end ! Let's learn to tolerate & be receptive to criticisms. That's d essence of democracy. Fayose should be objectively assessed in his criticisms. There is sense in what a mad man says if one is patient to listen. Very few Nigerians can say d truth like Fayose without minding whose ox is gured. Most Nigerians in politics are sycophants of their political God fathers. Time will tell.

anonymous said...

Governor Fayose, first I am not a supporter of the PDP but I believe you and FFK should be the ones that would rejuvenate a New party that will wrestle power back from this Clueless party, APC. Nigerians can't afford to let APC remain in power after 2019. We have a president and a party that have turned a deaf ear to the MASSIVE SUFFERING in the land. The president has traveled so much in 10 months to foreign lands compared to Jonathan in 6 years. And nothing of benefit to show for all these trips. I believe APC have a massive plan to rig the 2019 presidential election with violence so that they won't lose in 2019 because they have nothing good to offer Nigerians. If APC wants a credible election in 2019, let them conduct the OPEN BALLOT system and let see how they would retain power with such clueless president. The fulani people are busy butchering people all over the country and what we get from this president is SILENCE. With all the killings by boko haram and election violence all over the country, he remained SILENT. But if any incident happens abroad, he would be first one to come out and voice is sympathy. Oh, what an HYPOCRITE. Gov Fayose and FFK, the poor masses of Nigerians are looking up to you to rescue us from this train wreck which is APC. They lied in capturing power and they continue with those lies. Now, they are so drunk with power that they disregard every court orders in the land. Harassing political opponents and a president who is worthy of IMPEACHMENT violating the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on a daily basis. FEAR NOT gov Fayose and FFK,this govt would try to destroy you but the masses are on your side. You are the real president of Nigeria, not the IMPOSTOR sitting at Aso Rock

You know nothing. Very well, Fayose should and would have to attend to his state as well, but the state and the nation can not be equated because the state is only an arm of the entire country. The presidents and whatever decisions he makes today will greatly affect the country because he is face of the nation. He is on the front line!

My thoughts exactly when I saw that in the news.He said he is soliciting for the use of nuclear energy for power generation in Nigeria and I laughed.Does he think Nigeria is ready for anything nuclear when some ppl are even of the opinion that some tribes should be wiped out/that the presidency is their birth-right?Is he even aware that ppl can harness this nuclear energy for evil intentions?Why not solar energy that we have in abundance in this part of the world.

But truly Buhari cannot beat his chest and say he understands what is being discussed at that nuclear energy summit. That's why he has only talked about returning looted funds. But there's time and place for everything. Fayose is very r8ght this time. Tour house dey burn u dey chase rat

On dis, I agree with Fayose 100%. Buhari had no business in that summit, we have more pressing issues at da home front. For his supporters dat will say he went to meet world leaders on behalf of Nigeria's many problems I ask, hasn't he done enough traveling and lobbying already?? Abeg he should sit down in Nigeria and tackle our problems joor!! Enuf of all did irrelevant travels

Nigerians and their very short memories, No fuel, No jobs, No roads, Nigerians are suffering......So Buhari brought all these with him less 10 months ago? A country that has been stagnated for years and looted of all its resources should be upturned in months. Refineries were not built or functional for decades, Monies to improve power over the last 25 years has been constantly looted, and the PDP could not improve Nigerian infrastructure with $120 a barrel of Crude oil for many years and Buhari should perform magic with $38 to the barrel of Oil. Very short memories indeed.
