President Muhammadu Buhari has issued a stern 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.
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 administration.
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 administration.”
“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,” Shehu added.
Meanwhile, the state government has reaffirmed its determination to put an end to open defecation and enforce policy of one house, one toilet in the state.
