Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign to save the country from the “unprecedented hunger” his administration has brought upon Nigerians.

Fayose described the President as a total failure who has failed the country and who lacks the capacity for anything good.

Fayose said in a statement signed by his spokesman, Lere Olayinka that with the exchanged rate now $1 for N500 under Buhari and Nigerians being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places, it is obvious that President Buhari lacks what it takes to govern the country.

“It is better for the president to resign because he appears not to have capacity for positivity. If all the presidents that ruled before Buhari had behaved like he is behaving now, he himself will be in jail.”

The governor said this while reacting to media report on his telephone conversation with Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, that was published by Sahara Reporters.

He accused the Department of State Service of recording telephone conversations of Nigerians perceived as critics of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s All Progressives Congress government.

He claimed that the DSS edited the conversations and leaked same to Sahara Reporters, which according to him, had now become the official propaganda platform of the Federal Government.

Fayose, who said he was not bothered by the new antics, advised the federal government to provide food for Nigerians and save the lives of those that were being killed in Southern Kaduna and other places, “Rather than sitting down and be monitoring peoples phones.

“If the President and his hatchet men in the DSS, EFCC and other federal government agencies do not know what to do other than to record phone conversations of their perceived political foes, they should just resign and save the country from this harrowing experience.”

He described the DSS recording telephone conversations of Nigerians and leaking them to Sahara Reporters to publish as the height of the political rascality, manipulation, oppression, suppression and irresponsibility by agents of the federal government that are trying so hard to cover up the crimes they perpetrated against the people of Rivers State.

“They should even go beyond taping of my lines and come to live with me in Ekiti government house so that they can do per second live recordings of whatever I say because in the year 2017, by the grace of God, I will still say more without apology,” he said.

Fayose lamented the fact that for the first time since democracy returned to the country in 1999, Nigerians were celebrating Christmas and new year with hardly anything to eat.
