President Muhammadu Buhari has issued a serious warning to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state over
allegations he made about the federal government, with special reference to the September federal allocation of N389 billion he mentioned.
A statement issued by Mallam Shehu Garba, the senior
special assistant to the president on media and publicity,
stated that Fayose’s comments were reckless, which he
(Garba) believes is peculiar to the governor.
Meanwhile, it should be noted that President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Ayodele
Fayose are not in good terms
According to Nigerian Bulletin, Shehu’s comments are
coming on the heels of the governor’s speech at the
graduation ceremony of College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti,
where Fayose demanded that the president addresses
Nigerians on the state of the economy.
Fayose categorically stated that the country’s economy will
collapse in the next three months of President Buhari’s
The presidential spokesman said:
Records of such past
allocations showed “that the lowest-ever allocation to the
three tiers was issued by the PDP-led Goodluck Jonathan
Governor Fayose needs to be advised to desist from
spreading falsehood against the person and government of
President Muahmmadu Buhari which has become
characteristic of him. He needs to get his facts right before
making accusations of the nature he makes.
