Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has accused President Mohammadu Buhari of being incompetent, adding that the recent bloodshed that characterized the Rivers State rerun elections is a result of God’s anger with him.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, the governor maintained that the elections held under the present government, including the Rivers State rerun elections which the president oversaw were fraught with violence and bloodshed.
He said, “I am telling you the truth. Power doesn’t come from anywhere. God rules in the affairs of men. Oppressing, bringing and cutting people down, taking their blood, God is angry. The way this government is taking people down, taking their blood, God is angry. The way this government is taking people down, God is angry. God isn’t happy. Go to Rivers, they kill people. Go to Akwa Ibom, they kill people. Go to Bayelsa, they kill people, incarcerate innocent people. God is angry with Buhari. You can’t continue to take the blood of the innocent. Look at my predictions for the year 2016 for Nigeria, everything has come to pass. This is a different ball game. He that will take me, he that will go against me must first of all defeat God. If these were the kind of violence that greeted Buhari’s election would he ever be president?”
While acknowledging the fact that the president’s idea of the National Economic Council, NEC, retreat which held in Abuja was a good one, the governor stated that the present economic situation of the country was evident that the president lacked the technical competence to solve the problem of the country.
