I Will Continue To Be A Thorn In Buhari’s Flesh, He Can Withdraw My Police Guard- Fayose

 

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has vowed to be a “thorn on the flesh” of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government, stressing that Nigerians are tired of them
.
Fayose made the declaration at the Expanded National Caucus of the PDP in Abuja on Thursday.

He said he would continue to express his mind and would not even mind if the Federal Government withdrew his police guards.

“I will continue to leak their secrets. I will remain a thorn in their flesh. Anything they want to do, let them come. If they want to carry their police, let them carry their police. I don’t care,” he said.

The Chairman of the PDP’s Governors’ Forum, urged members of the PDP to remain steadfast and not to be intimidated by the spate of “arrests, incarceration, intimidation, provocation by the party in government.”
Fayose insisted that Nigerians were already yearning for another change because of the APC’s alleged poor handling of the nation’s economy.

He said, “The whole country is not only tired of the ruling party, they want another change. If not for the constitution, they want the change tomorrow.”

Lamenting that Nigerians don’t seem to learn from the past, Fayose said, “the same party that has been rejected by Nigerians is the party that people seem to be defecting to.”

The Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum faulted the current anti-corruption fight of the ruling party.
He said, “Nigerians are tired of the story of corruption, especially when you find how people that are fighting corruption are busy stealing cows and are running after those people alleged to have stolen squirrel.”

Stressing that “the ruling party has caused hunger,” the governor said it was evident that Nigerians had made a mistake by voting the APC, but said that opportunity was coming soon to correct it.

Buhari Cannot Be Forced To Address Nigerians On Rumors Of His Death- Presidency

 

Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari cannot be coerced to address the nation to quell rumors of his death.

“The President is in London on vacation. He is not in any hospital and he is not ill,” Mr. Adesina said on Thursday in an interview with CNBC Africa.

“When he was traveling last week, the statement we put out was that he was going on vacation and during the vacation, he would do routine medical check-up and nothing has changed from what we pushed out last week.

“If anybody has fed something else into the rumour mill, that is just what it is- a rumor.”

“The fact that he is a President, he still has his rights. Compelling him to come out and talk will be infringing on his rights.

“The president will talk if he wishes to. If he doesn’t wish to, nobody will compel him to talk.

The truth is that the president is on vacation and he has given a date on which he will return to work.

Northern Lawmakers Pass Vote Of Confidence On Buhari (READ THEIR REASONS)

 

The 94 members of the House of Representatives from North West geopolitical zone yesterday passed a vote of confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari.

Rising from a meeting that lasted for about three hours, the lawmakers said they were confident that Buhari would take Nigeria out of the current hardship.

Addressing journalists after the meeting, leader of the Caucus in the House and Chief Whip, Alhassan Ado Doguwa, said Buhari has done a lot and should be supported.

“We have passed a vote of confidence on Buhari’s administration. We also did same for the leadership of the House under Speaker Yakubu Dogara. We have confidence in our president and we have no regret about that,” he said.

Asked if their action was ahead of 2019, Doguwa said: “2019 will take care of itself. But we can assure you that Nigerians can’t do without Buhari in 2019.”

He said they also resolved to press more for additional projects to the zone in the 2017 budget as they believe the North West has been allocated few capital projects.

“We as a caucus have agreed to look at the budget. We came to the conclusion that they allocated only few projects. We believe that the region should be given more than what it gets. We resolved to attract more projects to our zone individually as representatives of the people.

“We have also discussed the issue of insecurity in the zone. We want to make sure that the security of lives and property of the region are paramount. We have agreed to raise the issue with the Federal Government so that the insecurity in the region could be tackled,” he said.

Tinubu Criticizes Buhari’s Economic Policies, Says I Won’t Ignore The Truth…

 

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has urged the Federal Government to get Nigeria out of recession by urgently reviewing its monetary policies.

Tinubu spoke on Wednesday as a guest lecturer at the National Defence College Course 25, titled, “Strategic Leadership: My Political Experiences.”

He argued that Nigeria’s current inflation rate of 18 per cent was unbearable and that Nigerians were suffering for it.

He said, “In the situation we face, deficit spending is essential to bolster aggregate demand and direct funds to projects that build infrastructure and bolster employment. We must better harmonise monetary policy with fiscal policy. It undercuts our goals if monetary policy is unduly tight at a time when fiscal policy begets deficit spending.

“We must also realign trade policy with our need to create a meaningful industrial base and more potent agricultural sector. We can no longer allow cheap imports to preclude the development of industries and sectors strategic to our enduring economic future.

“What am I doing if I have a billion, and you are ready to give me 180 million, that is 18 per cent upfront, do I have to work or do anything again? These are the factors they have to look at quickly to ease the monetary policy.

“You have to stimulate this economy, you have to spend yourself out of this recession and you cannot do that by consistently stifling the banks of liquidity. It is their money; it is their saving. We have to criticise ourselves when it is necessary, speak truth to power.

“We are the power, we speak truth to ourselves. The monetary policy must be consistent with the environmental need of our domestic requirements, you cannot hold on too much or too tight to a policy.”

Tinubu added that the leadership of the APC was right to criticise the Federal Government, because “when it is necessary, speak truth to the power, we are the power, we will talk the truth to ourselves.”

“Our fiscal policy does not mesh with monetary policy. Trade policy undermines industrial policy, thus the ease of doing business is inhibited. Overseas peacekeeping missions do not always harmonise with core foreign policy interests. A nation in progress seeks to minimise, not harvest additional contradictions, otherwise its leadership strategy is doomed to fail.

“Strategic objectives during this period of economic uncertainty must be to re-engineer the economy bottom up, diversify the economic base, strengthen our industrial base, modernise infrastructure, enhance agriculture, and provide employment and of course, ease of doing business,” he added

Northern Leader Cries Out; We Regret Voting Out Jonathan, Begs Buhari To Resign

 

A Northern Leader, Sheikh Gumi, has expressed regret for voting out former President, Goodluck Jonathan, in the 2015 general elections.

Gumi, who made this disclosure on Tuesday, in an interview he granted to some Reporters, expressed his views about the current happenings in Nigeria.

His Statement in the interview reads: “Jonathan is even needed in the country more now, to bring stability to the country. Give him his due recognition. He did well too. He made mistakes, everybody makes mistakes.

“This government should use former President Jonathan now, to stabilize the South-East and the South-South.

“The past political leaders in the North have not done well for us in the North.

“One of the problems they refused to solve, is the level of education among our people.

“Look at the Almajiri problem, the effort of former President Goodluck Jonathan was the best.

“He built four hundred Almajiri schools. It was the absolute right thing to do.

“If that program had continued, it would have killed Boko Haram.

“Politics set in, people diverted the funds. Jonathan had the answer to the Almajiri issue, but it was not executed.

“President Buhari is already making a mistake. He has to be very tactful. He has to be subtle and wise.

“It is just like removing a tumor from the brain. Ask a Neurosurgeon, he will tell you that a small tumor may take you 15 hours to remove.

“You cannot rush. This is how Nigeria is: delicate.

“All these drastic measures, stringent measures don’t work.

“The way the present administration is handling corruption, it is not working.

“I am not supporting Boko Haram or corruption, but it is the way they are being handled.

“During Jonathan’s time, soldiers mounted road blocks in every city and corner, would make people get down from their bikes and cars.

“The security services were humiliating people who were supposed to vote for President Jonathan, in the name of fighting Boko Haram.

“The North is the victim of Boko Haram. Maiduguri is the victim of Boko Haram. A majority of the people don’t like Boko Haram.

“When you institute stringent measures that punish the population, they turn against you.

“Jonathan is a good person, but the security deceived him. They stirred the anger of the people against him.

“This was a man who was doing his best, but his agents did not do well for him.

“The market is very volatile. It does not want disturbance. Look at naira, it has crashed against the dollar, and the economy is grounded.

“It would have been slowly and subtly done. If you go to Malaysia or Saudi Arabia, the rate against the dollar remains the same.

“Now, the corruption we are trying to fight has tripled, because once there is poverty, the brain does not accept what they see as corruption.

“You cannot get anything now, except you give money. You don’t smash your television set, simply because you want to kill a rat in your room.

“Even the agitation in the South has increased, because of the way the President is handling issues.

“Generally South-Easterners are good people, but they do not have intellectuals to direct them on what to do and how to do it.

“This is what they lack. What we will do is to assist them to have good intellectuals.

“To begin any genuine reconciliation, President Buhari should release Nnamdi Kanu immediately.

“He should not only be released from prison, he should also be brought to the negotiation table.

“Government Ekpemupolo, Asari Dokubo, should be brought to the negotiating table. Kanu should not be in prison.

“He is merely agitating, and they have a reason to agitate. Bring them to the table.

“They are different from Boko Haram. We had to use force on Boko Haram.

“I think we can bring them to the table now, because they have seen their experiment did not work.

“As for Kanu, he should be brought out and negotiated with. Ask him what he wants.

“Bring Europeans and teach him how to negotiate. It is not by force.

“If you paralyze Enugu with a demonstration, you are destroying the economy of Enugu. It is not good for you.

“Bring peace to the South-East, develop the South-East, then negotiate. Kanu should be educated.

“If you imprison him, you are giving him the power to draw sympathy from even those who do not support what he is doing.’’

Attacks On the Clergy: Fayose Blasts Buhari, Says Nig Will Be In Crisis If….

 

The Ekiti State Governor and Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, Mr Ayodele Fayose has cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government to be mindful of how it handles issues bordering on religion in the country so as not to throw the country into religious crisis. Condemning attempt by armed men of the Department of State Services (DSS) to arrest Apostle Johnson Suleiman of The Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide in Ado Ekiti, early today, he said it was a clear invitation to chaos.

Governor Fayose, who challenged the security agencies in the country, especially the DSS to tell Nigerians how many of the Fulani herdsmen that killed thousands of Nigerians across the country have been arrested, added that; “Nigerians, either Muslim or Christian deserve to be protected by the federal government, which controls all security apparatus in the country and the moment the federal government can no longer protect Nigerians from being killed by rampaging herdsmen, citizens of the country will have no option than to defend themselves.”

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose, who lamented that the APC-led federal government was indirectly supporting attack on Christians and other Muslim sects, especially the Shi’ites, by looking the other way while they are attacked, called on the international community to intervene before Nigeria is thrown into major religious crisis.

Governor Fayose, who expressed surprise that a man of God was been trailed to be
