- The former governor of Ekiti state described President Buhari 's presidency as deaf and dumb
The former governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose, has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari's special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina not to wake a sleeping lion.
Fayose disclosed this in a series of tweets on Sunday, July 5, while reacting to a piece published by the presidential spokesperson.
It would be recalled that the presidential media aide, in a piece on Thursday, July 2, said that Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, has vindicated supporters of the president.
Adesina who made the comment after Wike invited Buhari to visit the state, said that the president would have dealt with Fayose and Wike over their public outbursts but chose to tolerate both men as a father of the nation.
However, Fayose in response warned Adesina that failure to heed his warning could attract consequences that he would be unable to contend with.
According to the former governor, he has been quiet for a while, having concluded that the Nigerian leader's presidency is deaf and dumb.
He said: "Femi Adesina, do you realize I have been quiet for a while, having concluded that Buhari’s Presidency is deaf and dumb? So don’t wake a sleeping lion so as not to be confronted with consequences you can't contend with."
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Governor Wike praised President Buhari for approving refund of the sum of N78.9 billion to the Rivers state government.
The money was released as the cost of execution of the federal government's road projects in the state. He also commended Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for the support he provided to the state.
"I wish to, therefore, appeal to Mr. President to kindly oblige us with a State visit when invited, to see what we have accomplished for the state and our people with the money," the governor said.
In other news, Fayose told two chieftains of the ruling party that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) doesn't want them following the crisis that has plagued the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Ekiti state chapter.
Fayose told Senator Babafemi Ojudu, the special adviser to the president on political matters, and Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, former minister of works, to forget the idea of returning to the PDP.
