Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to resign if he had no solutions to the economic crises confronting the country.
He reminded the president of the three million jobs he promised to create annually during the campaign, adding that it would be unfair for his government to sack workers under any guise.
The governor also accused the president of double standard for allegedly proposing to remove the subsidy and increase the pump price to N97.
He said, “This is not the change Nigerians voted for. President Buhari must fulfill all his electoral promises to the people. Enough of these flimsy excuses.
“What we have under change promised by APC is dwindling economy, low power generation, proposed subsidy removal, high level poverty and naira devaluation. What President Buhari promised us is change and he should resign if he has no clues to all these problems.
“Even for the president to have said Nigerians should brace up for more hardship in 2016 is most callous of a man who promised Nigerians change.
“President Buhari must stop fighting from all fronts. All these political vendetta will take him nowhere. If he thinks he can’t solve all these problems, he should handover to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo or whoever and vow out honourably.”
Fayose spoke on Tuesday while signing into law, the N67.04 billion 2016 appropriation bill he presented before the Ekiti State House of Assembly last Tuesday, among other five bills that had been passed by the lawmakers.
Others bills assented to are Ekiti State Regency Bill, Ekiti State 2015 Revised Appropriation Bill, Ekiti State College of Technical and Commercial Agriculture Repeal Bill, Ekiti State Office of the Defenders Bill and Kidnap and Terrorism Prohibition Bill 2016.
Fayose after assenting to the bills directed Speaker Kola Oluwawole to send copies to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission for proper monitoring.
“The fact that the appropriation bill was signed into law after one week of its presentation goes to show the unity of purpose between my government and the house. We have unanimously say today that we are running the same government under my leadership and that we will keep,” he added.
