This is what Ekiti state governor, Mr Ayo Fayose said during the commissioning of a
three-block classroom built at the Erelu Adebayo Children’s Home in Iyin
Ekiti, Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government Area as part of activities to
mark his second year in office…..
“Nigerians have had enough of anti-corruption war” adding that the
President should address the massive hunger that is killing many people
in the nation.
“What they came out today to tell Nigerians that 21 abducted Chibok
girls have been released the Boko Haram group is diversionary.
Nigerians have never had it so bad. People are very hungry. What they
did today is just to divert attention from what they did last week by
clamping judges and justices into detention. While no one is saying
corruption should be condoned, but the due process must be followed.
“The Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government that they labelled
as inept, did better than this. The exchange rate of the naira to the
dollar is unacceptable. The situation has led to hyper-inflation where
what people used to buy for N30,000 can not be bought with N100,000.
Look at the elections that have been conducted since they came to
office, all the gains recorded the previous government as far as
democracy is concerned are being eroded”.
“Food security is number one, they should stop fooling us; our economy
must be urgently addressed because Nigerians voted for the government in
power so that they can enjoy better lives.
“There is hunger everywhere, many husbands had turned to wives in their
families. Nigeria is hard to live in and we pray that God will change
this change for us.
“It is not good for a government to be catching thieves and kidnappers
everyday while its citizens are hungry. Everybody is now a thief in
Nigeria, we need prayer in Nigeria and we need divine intervention.
“Our people are suffering under the APC government, I am not afraid of
what man can do to me. They have taken our rights away from us but I am
not afraid because if you want to catch me you must slaughter God.
“We have had enough of diversionary tactics, they are using the report
of Chibok girls’ release to cover up the undue arrest of our judges.
Trampling on our rights is trampling on the Constitution.
“We want food on our table because propaganda does not amount to food on
the table of our citizens. Let them continue to conspire, I will
continue to rule them.
“Those waiting for me, tell them that they will continue to wait in
vain. I am going somewhere, God is taking me to somewhere in Nigeria
whether my adversaries like it or not.
