Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has been strongly criticized by Aminu Suleiman, the chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Tertiary Education.
Governor Fayose never misses any opportunity to criticise President Buhari
Aminu said the people of Ekiti state were unlucky to have Fayose as their governor, Daily Trust reports.
He said this in reaction to the constant criticisms and direct insults the Ekiti governor often throws at President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to him, Fayose has shown that he is unfit to be a governor.
He said: “It pains me a lot when a state that is reputed for academics and excellence, a state in Nigeria that has the highest number of professors, will be saddled with the misfortune of having an undignified politician as a governor. I share my pains with the majority of the people of Ekiti state, who find themselves in this misfortune.
“I join the Ekiti people in prayers that God Almighty will never allow them or any state, for that matter, produce as governor, somebody like Fayose because the man is making us a laughing stock in the international community.”
Aminu described Buhari “as a doctor that came at a time when there is global scarcity of medication.”
Fayose, who became governor on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, never misses any opportunity to criticise Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress.
In his defense, he said his words and actions against the president will help Nigerians to have dividends of democracy, adding that lack of consistent and constructive criticisms of public office holders gives birth to dictatorial governance.
On Sunday, May 29, the outspoken governor once again took a swipe at Buhari, saying the country has experienced woes and untold hardship one year after taking he took over mantle of leadership.
The governor has been attacked on several occasions for criticising the president but he cannot be bothered and keeps on getting more enemies.
