An ardent critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and a former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has bemoaned the level of hardship in Nigeria as he also called on President Buhari to step down. Fayose noted that Nigeria currently has nothing to celebrate on the occasion of her 60th Independence anniversary.
In a statement by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka the former governor said Buhari’s resignation was the only thing that would be the best 60th independence anniversary gift to Nigerians.
Fayose, who further described Nigeria as a country in coma and life support said there is nothing to celebrate in a country bedevilled with insecurity, hunger, corruption and bad governance.
The former governor said that a situation whereby people cannot freely express their grievances against the government doesn’t portray Nigeria as a country that practices Democracy.
According to him, the warning that was issued by the Police that any form of rally or protest will not be allowed on Independence day is an affront on the constitution of Nigeria.
He further stated that the police must also be mindful of the fact that they have family members who are facing the hardship bedevilling the country.
Fayose, who stressed that Nigerians are not happy with the present situation of the country described the President Buhari-led administration as the worst in the history of Nigeria. He said Nigerians are not happy about the debts accumulated by this government as they are also living in fears of being attacked, raped or killed by armed bandits.
On the clamor for disintegration, Fayose said nobody wants Nigeria to disintegrate but rather, Nigerians want to live their lives normally without minding which party is in government.
