As a result of the political violence which erupted and led to a blood bath in the rerun election of Rivers State over the weekend, Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has again unfolded his tongue to President Mohammadu Buhari, saying that God is angry with him.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, March 22, 2016, the outspoken Governor who promised never to cease attacking the present administration, stated that Buhari, being the watchman of the nation, stood by and watched over the remarkably bloody elections, doing nothing to alleviate the situation, as he made a list of other violent elections that have taken place under the government of President Buhari.
Additionally, Mr. Fayose stated that power belonged to the God and ought not to be abused by any person who is given the opportunity to wield it, no matter how highly they are placed. He said,
“I am telling you the truth. Power doesn’t come from anywhere. God rules in the affairs of men. Oppressing, bringing and cutting people down, taking their blood, God is angry. The way this government is taking people down, God is angry. God isn’t happy. Go to Rivers, they kill people.
“Go to Akwa Ibom, they kill people. Go to Bayelsa, they kill people, incarcerate innocent people. God is angry with Buhari. You can’t continue to take the blood of the innocent. Look at my predictions for the year 2016 for Nigeria, everything has come to pass.
“This is a different ball game. He that will take me, he that will go against me must first of all defeat God. If these were the kind of violence that greeted Buhari’s election would he ever be president?” Fayose asked.
Speaking further, the Ekiti State Governor shared his views on the likely result of the just-concluded retreat of the National Economic Council (NEC) in Abuja, emphatically stating that the current situation of the Nigerian economy is a clue to the fact that President Mohammadu Buhari is bereft of the technical competence required to solve the many problems facing the country.
Although the governor applauded the idea, he wondered if it would not be just a talk shop.
