Fayose backs Obasanjo, says Nigeria becoming a failed state under Buhari


                                Ayodele Fayose

Former Ekiti State Governor , Ayodele Fayose , says he agrees with former President Olusegun Obasanjo that Nigeria is becoming a failed state and can crumble if nothing urgent is done to address the country challenges .

Fayose made this known on Saturday night in an Instagram Live Chat with the Chief Executive Officer , Ovation Media Group, Dele Momodu .

Saturday PUNCH had exclusively reported that Obasanjo at an event in Abuja said Nigeria was slowly becoming a failed state that urgently needed to be pulled from the brink of collapse .

The former President also stated that he had never seen Nigeria so divided , adding that many of the problems currently plaguing the country were due to the recent mismanagement of Nigeria ’ s diversity .

Reacting during the one- on - one, Fayose said though he usually won ’ t agree with Obasanjo on national issues, however , all that he said of the regime of the President , Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd . ) , in 2015 were becoming reality.

The former governor , who said there was nothing personal between himself and Buhari , lamented the insecurity and rising debt profile of the country , saying “ only God will deliver Nigeria ” .

Fayose said , “ Of all the Presidents , I don’ t like Obasanjo ways , I tell you the truth ; I don’ t like his ways at all . Me and him we are not on the same page but Obasanjo is the only one- time Nigerian President that has helped this country here and there .

“ The fact remains that if you look at the Obasanjo time , there are certain things he put in place and don’ t forget , he saved this country a lot of money. He saved this country a lot of money . These people have squandered all we have . The way Obasanjo brought it down, they have taken it up.

“ That was why what Obasanjo said today ( Saturday) , in a way, I agree with him . We don’ t normally agree but I agree with him .

“ When I started talking about President Buhari, even you , Dele Momodu , criticised me . Even you , Dele Momodu was looking at a saint in Buhari . Today , most of you now should cover your faces in shame, that you gave Nigerians a wrong road and a wrong path . It ’ s regrettable.

“ Everything I said about that government at the time , when it was still in embryo , everything has happened today.

“ I said in 2015 that President Buhari will be a shield for the looters to bleed this country . I said so many things that this President has no capacity.

“ My brother, have you seen a country govern the way this country is being governed ? Have you seen one? Everybody now , we are in crisis , we are trouble , the economy is in trouble . You remember, Operation Occupy Nigeria ? Where are these people now ? You people should occupy again , we are waiting for you to occupy . This country is in trouble , we need God , we need intervention .

“ Look at our debt profile . We may wake up one day and they say China has come to take over . So , we should handover to China . It is a very sad development. If they don’ t address the electoral process in this country , we are going nowhere . When the government begins to fear the people, things will change.

“ This APC in five years is dastardly , more terrible than the PDP in 16 years.

“ Nothing is personal between me and President Buhari, he didn ’ t take my wife and I don ’ t even have the capacity to take his wife but this country is not governed well . ”
