Kamarudeen Ogundele, Ado Ekiti
The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said what Nigerians are now desirous of hearing from the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government is the defeat of hunger and untold hardship ravaging the country.
He said Nigerians were tired of “recycled stories” of the defeat of Boko Haram insurgents, which he alleged, was aimed at diverting the attention of Nigerians from the fact that there was ravaging hunger at this time of the year.
The governor said it had become predictable that whenever Nigerians cried of the pains and sufferings they were going through, the Federal Government would come with stories like: “20 Chibok girls found,” “$1bn found in Mr. A, B or C bedroom,” “Boko Haram technically defeated,” “We have captured Sambisa Forest,” etc just to divert attention.
Fayose, in a statement on Monday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said, “It is painful that Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari has become directionless either due to the cluelessness of the President or his old age that has foisted a purposeless leadership on the country.” (Punchng.com)
