Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, on Wednesday, mocked both President Mohammadu Buhari and former President Olusegun Obasanjo over their latest verbal exchanges over the $16 billion allegedly spent on power during the tenure of the former President.
Governor Fayose who took to his twitter handle to make mockery of the two leaders said that he was enjoying the public display of what he called ‘brick-bath’ between them.
Governor Fayose said his prediction that those who brought President Buhari would regret entrusting him with power, has just come to pass.
His words: “I am enjoying these latest brickbats between President Buhari & ex-President Obasanjo. They should keep exposing themselves for Nigerians to know what they have been hiding.
“Nigerians should remember I warned that those who brought Buhari will regret entrusting him with power.”
Former President Obasanjo has been clamouring that Buhari has not only failed but should quit in 2019. To achieve the goal, he has formed a movement that has since become a political party.
President Buhari had said that Obasanjo has question to answer regarding the $16 billion expended on power project. He stated this when his support group led by the Comptroller General Hameed Ali paid him courtesy call.
However, Obasanjo replied saying that the president was ignorant urging him to avail himself of his aide to translate his book if he is unable to read.
In another development, Governor Fayose has urged the Ekiti Market women not to sell their votes come July 14 governorship election. He said that selling their votes would mean selling themselves to another four years of slavery.
He stated this, in Ado-Ekiti, while commissioning the Okeisa modern market built by his administration.
He said that those relying on federal might to win election in Ekiti state are fooling themselves because the people of Ekiti will only get their money but vote according to their conscience.
“When I was not in government, beat them hands down talk less of now that we are in charge. They said there is federal might, they are empty barrel. By your grace, I defeat them outside government.
“My mothers, if on the election day you collect money to vote for a particular candidate, you have just sold your future. If you want to talk, you won’t have voice. Let us be truthful with our permanent voters’ cards.
“Let no one destroy his/her tomorrow because if my mother had sold her future, I won’t be here as your governor. You won’t labour in vain. I want to appreciate you for your support. This is the kind of market we should have all over the state.
“Those that were displayed in the former market will be first considered during allocation. Please support Olusola Eleka for governor.”
