The immediate past governor of Ekiti state, Dr. Ayodele Fayose has described President Muhammadu Buhari as an “Accidental President,” who is not only clueless but unconscious of happenings in his own Presidency.
Fayose said this on his official Twitter handle on Sunday, while reacting to Mr. Femi Adesina, A media Adviser to the President, asking him not to “wake a sleeping lion”.
Speaking on Mr. Adesina’s latest piece, Fayose said failure to heed his warning could attract consequences that Adesina would be unable to cope with.
The presidential spokesman had said Buhari would have “dealt with” Fayose and Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, over their “combative remarks” against the presidency but he chose to tolerate the duo as a father of the nation.
But in a series of tweets on Sunday, Fayose said he decided not to comment about issues relating to Buhari because he has realised that “Buhari’s presidency is deaf and dumb”.
“On the comment by my brother and friend, @FemAdesina, on the President not “dealing with myself and Gov Wike,” President Buhari, in my opinion is an “Accidental President,” who is not only clueless but unconscious of happenings in his own Presidency,” he tweeted.
“A man who can’t defend or protect his immediate family is not in anyway better than an effigy. If not, those around him won’t be talking about a President “punishing” serving governors or even ordinary Nigerians as if they are his servants”
