Buhari Made Me Go On Strike, Says Fayose
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has said that the strike action he embarked upon, thus becoming the first Nigerian governor to join workers on strike was caused by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The governor took many by surprise when he announced on Saturday that he had Embarked On Indefinite Strike As Governor in solidarity with the state workers.
He said he decided to join the workers when he realised that the current administration had “failed and would continue to fail” in revamping the nation’s economy.
He said the Buhari-led government will not recover from the current economic crisis, saying God is angry with the president, but only decided to allow him win the election so that he would be exposed.
According to Stephen Gbadamosi, spokesman of the speaker of Ekiti house of assembly, Fayose made the remarks at the Government House Chapel, Ado Ekiti, during a thanksgiving service to mark the first anniversary of the 5th assembly in Ekiti.
“I am not a prophet of doom, but I must tell you the truth. It is this economic downturn that will pull down the Buhari-led government. Mark my word. The economy will improve, but it will be too late in the life of the Buhari-led government,” Gbadamosi quoted Fayose as saying.
“God is angry with the Buhari-led government. It is shedding the blood of too many innocent people.
“Soldiers would enter the home of poor village people and gun them down in cold blood. There is too much of blood-shedding. Look at what they did to that innocent woman in Kano.
“I am telling you that God allowed them to get into government so that they would be exposed; so that everyone would see their inability and hypocrisy.”
