Buhari should stop lamenting, he’s among past leaders who caused Nigeria’s problems-Fayose says

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has told President Muhammadu
Buhari to stop behaving like a “weeping president” by lamenting about
what his predecessors failed to do and blaming past leaders for the
inability of his administration to fulfill his campaign promises,
adding that; “Only a leader like President Buhari that lacked
competence and is challenged by knowledge and exposure will blame his
predecessors for over three years.”

The governor, who described the president’s statement on Sunday while
receiving some members of the Buhari Diaspora Support Organisation in
London as shameful, said; “it appears he (Buhari) has forgotten that
he is also among the past leaders of Nigeria because blaming past
leaders for the country’s economic problems amounts to blaming
himself. The negative foundation the likes of President Buhari laid
caused the problems of the country.”

In a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Monday, by his Special Assistant
on Public Communications and New media, Lere Olayinka, the governor
said; “It is appalling that Buhari, who at his very young age was
Military Governor of the of the North Eastern State, Petroleum
Minister, Head of State and later Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund
(PTF) under the Abacha administration is the same person that is
blaming past leaders of Nigeria.

“What difference did he make as Governor of the North Eastern State?
What was his role as Minister of Petroleum and Chairman of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) when it was created in
1977?

“It is on record that it was during President Buhari’s tenure as
Minister of Petroleum that N2.8 billion went missing from the accounts
of the NNPC in Midlands Bank in the United Kingdom. N2.8 billion as at
that time is like $2.8 billion (over N1 trillion) now.

“It is also on record that President Buhari was a key player in the
Abacha government that the country is still recovering its loots up
till today. Interestingly, our Mr. Integrity President once said that
Abacha never stole.

“Fact that President must face is that he has blamed everyone,
including the late President of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi. He is now
blaming himself as part of the past leaders of Nigeria, it is
shameful.

“If the President is someone who faces reality, he would have
realized that his goodwill has declined to the lowest level. He will
also realize that in 2015, Nigerians did not really vote to elect him
as President. Rather, it was a vote from the North against PDP’s
failure to pick a northern candidate that made him President.”
