Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has taken a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, comparing his leadership style to that of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Speaking at the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, at the grand finale of the People’s Democratic Party rally for its Kogi State governorship candidate and incumbent Governor Idris Wada, Fayose said both Obasanjo and President Buhari both had poor human rights record, adding that the President has made things harder for the country.
He said: “If you look and search the style of Buhari’s administration and compare it with that of Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, who ruled the country between 1999 and 2007, the two administrations have a resemblance of military dictatorship.”
The governor also spoke on the APC candidate for the election, Abubakar Audu, who he said is still standing trial for fraud.
His words: “It is laughable when the APC national body cleared Abubakar Audu to contest the governorship election when he is facing trail in the Lokoja High Court and in Abuja. Where was President Buhari? Can he claim that he is not in the know?
“The APC-led government only dillies-dally around the challenges confronting the nation; the issue of Boko Haram and the dwindling economic situation became worse in the last six months of the Buhari administration.
“This government has only achieved a lot in the area of chasing shadow, making the nation worse for the people.”
