2016 budget crisis confirms my position that Buhari is clueless, incompetent – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the raging
controversies between the Presidency and the National Assembly over
the 2016 Budget as a confirmation of his position that President
Mohammadu Buhari was clueless and incompetent, saying; “Nigerians
should expect more blunders like this until they send Buhari back to
Daura in 2019.”

The governor, who said it was now obvious that the President and his
All Progressives Congress (APC) only wanted power desperately without
the wherewithal to govern, added that; “I warned Nigerians of the
consequences of electing an octogenarian as president and with the international embarrassment that this budget crisis has become, I have
been vindicated.”

According to a statement issued on Tuesday by his Special Assistant on
Pubic Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said;
“It is obvious that there is total disconnection between the President
and his cabinet members as many of the ministers don’t even have
access to him probably because the President spend most of his time
resting as a result of his old age.”

He said; “The reality is that the President is challenged by age,
exposure and ability. He did not read the budget proposal that he presented to the National Assembly and this should be a lesson for those who clamoured for a Buhari’s presidency that no man can give what he does not have.

“The question is; can a minister present supplementary budget to the
National Assembly and can the National Assembly act on budget proposal submitted by a minister?

“It is shameful that after blaming former President Goodluck Jonathan
and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for close to one year, the
presidency is now blaming the National Assembly for its inability to prepare a common budget.”

The governor commended the National Assembly for exposing the lies and
hypocrisy of the presidency, saying it was shameful that President
Buhari and his men could blame the National Assembly for their

He called on the National Assembly not to succumb to blackmail and
intimidation from the Presidency, saying that the way and manner the
Presidency was going about blackmailing and intimidating other arms of government, especially the judiciary should worry lovers of democracy and good governance in the country.

The governor, who declared that Nigeria will no longer be ruled by
octogenarians, said; “Nigerians must have now come to terms that I
warned them that Buhari is too old to govern a country like Nigeria.”
