- Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the recent defection of some high profile politicians to the ruling APC
- The former governor subtly berated President Muhammadu Buhari for receiving the politicians
- Describing the APC as a dead party, he advised the president on what to do to solve the country's financial and security challenges
Governor Fayose has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to always make himself available to Nigerians who can help the country solve her many challenges instead of meeting with politicians.
The president said this following the recent visit of some high profile politicians who recently defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to the former Ekiti state governor, Nigerians are not interested in the number of politicians that have decamped to the APC.
In a post shared on his Twitter page, Fayose wrote:
Is Nigeria really making progress under Buhari? At last, presidency opens up, releases crucial video
"Most importantly, Nigerians are not interested in how many politicians that decamp to APC, which is already a dead party.
"The president should rather make himself available to Nigerians who can help solve our unending financial and security challenges amongst others."
Meanwhile, reactions quickly followed his submission.
"Unfortunately, APC isn't a dead party, the number of people that turned up nationwide during the revalidation process attests to this fact.
"Let's agree that the PDP is terrible at being an opposition party and the source of 75% of the problems we are currently witnessing."
In another report, Fayose on Monday, March 15, met with Nigeria's former military head of state, General Babangida.
In what he described as consultation, the former governor said he also met with General Abdulsalami Abubakar, the former military leader who supervised Nigeria's transition to civilian rule in 1999.
Fayose disclosed this on Twitter just as he noted that he will continue consulting with other stakeholders.
