Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has raised objection over the report that Nigeria had escaped recession.
The Ekiti state Governor disagreed with the recent report of the country’s economy.
According to him; “Claiming that Nigeria is out of economic recession without any corresponding effect on the living condition of the people is just like they said Boko Haram had been defeated and over 400 people were killed by the insurgents in the last five months.
Is dollar now N197 to $1? Is petrol now back to N87 per litre that Buhari met it in May 2015? Are Nigerians now feeding comfortably, even if it is once in a day?
Most importantly, are states now getting enough allocation from the federation account to be able to meet their obligations, especially payment of salary?
It must be stated that Nigeria’s foreign reserves, which stood at $28.6 billion by May 2015 that President Buhari took over power declined steadily to $23.89 billion by the last quarter of 2016.
It was in 2016 that Nigeria slipped into recession. Owing to the bad economic policies and repressive actions of President Buhari.
It is sad that the APC government has remained on the path of lies and propaganda. I wonder why the government can’t be truthful for once.
However, if this latest lies is about 2019 general elections, they have missed it because Nigerians can no longer be received by the APC lying government.
Nigerians should therefore disregard their lies and keep praying for God intervention in the affairs of the country.”
Fayose added that “President Muhammadu Buhari does not have the required mental capacity and strength to rule Nigeria.”
He advised the President to consider his health as well as the overall interests of Nigeria and resign.
The Governor disclosed the information via his aide, Lere Olayinka on Wednesday, September 6, 2017.
