Following a remark by Ekiti governor Ayodele Fayose who said President Buhari is Nigeria’s problem,the All Progressives Congress in the State has described Fayose and the Peoples Democratic Party as Nigeria’s greatest problems. The Ekiti APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, stated this in a statement which reads in parts that, “During his first term between 2003 and 2006, all international development agencies operating in Ekiti State, including the World Bank and British DFID, relocated from Ekiti when they could no longer cope with the opaque manner Fayose was conducting government’s business in relation to the agencies’ partnership with his administration.
“Fayose’s name rang around the world when he masterminded the greatest electoral fraud in history, mobilising the military for treason to menace the opposition, compromising INEC by illegally obtaining its sensitive materials and drawing on nation’s defence vote to manipulate his election in what is Nigeria’s greatest electoral blues known as Ekitigate. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala recently told the world that the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan frittered the heavy foreign reserves built by Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Umar Musa Yar’Adua while he (Jonathan) failed to save for the rainy days despite the huge oil receipts within six years but instead resorted to borrowing foreign and local loans to pay salaries while obligations to contractors were ignored, thus piling up the nation’s debts that are disincentive to the in-flow of foreign investments. The greatest fear that always rattles the ‘fearless’ Fayose is whenever a looter is uncovered by the Federal Government because he knows what is coming for him after the EFCC traced billions of illegal funds to his frozen accounts.”
