Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, Monday night, in a series of tweets, said President Muhammadu Buhari should be bpamed for the troubles Nigeria is currently passing through.
He cautioned Buhari to stop blaming past leaders for Nigeria’s problems, claiming that Buhari has always been in power since many decades ago.
The governor also acussed the President of not being able to account for a lot of money while serving under a former Head of State, General Sani Abacha.
Fayose maintained that the negative foundation the likes of President Buhari laid caused the problems of the country.
His words, “Fact that President must face is that he has blamed everyone, including the late President of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi. He is now blaming himself as part of the past leaders of Nigeria, it is shameful.
“It is also on record that President Buhari was a key player in the Abacha government that the country is still recovering its loots up till today. Interestingly, our Mr. Integrity President once said that Abacha never stole.
“It is on record that it was during President Buhari’s tenure as Minister of Petroleum that N2.8 billion went missing from the accounts of the NNPC in Midlands Bank in the United Kingdom. N2.8billion as at that time is like $2.8billion (over N1trillion) now.
“What difference did President Buhari make as Governor of the North Eastern State? What was his role as Minister of Petroleum and Chairman of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) when it was created in 1977?
“It is appalling that President Buhari, who at his very young age was Military Governor of the North Eastern State, Petroleum Minister, Head of State and later Chairman of the Petroleum Trust Fund, PTF, under the Abacha administration is the same person blaming past leaders of Nigeria
“It appears President Buhari has forgotten that he is also among the past leaders of Nigeria because blaming past leaders for the country’s economic problems amounts to blaming himself. The negative foundation the likes of President Buhari laid caused the problems of the country”.
