Presidency Breaks Silence On Why Fayose Is Not Among 7 Governors Visiting Buhari In London

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over the “nonchalant attitude” of the Federal Government towards ending the fuel scarcity being experienced across the country.

The governor said it was unfortunate that the fuel scarcity was biting harder under the watch of the president as the Minister of Petroleum.

He maintained that the All Progressives Congress-led federal government was punishing Nigerians with fuel scarcity so as to achieve its planned raise of petrol pump price from N145 to not less than N185 per litre.

In a press release issued on Friday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said the only way to rescue Nigeria “from being brought down completely is to vote out Buhari and his APC in 2019”.

He said: “I warned Nigerians before President Buhari was elected and I am telling Nigerians now that the only option to rescue our country from being brought down completely is to vote out Buhari and his APC

“Already, fuel is being sold officially at between N180 and N200 at petrol stations across the country.

“It is sad that this Buhari’s APC government had to choose this Christmas and New Year period to ground Nigeria with the fuel scarcity that it deliberately orchestrated.

“It is obvious that the president has failed in all ramifications and he needs to do Nigerians a favour by relinquishing the portfolio of minister of petroleum.”

“Like I said a few days ago, what the federal government is doing is to create scarcity so that Nigerians will be willing to buy at any price, provided the product is made available.

“It was to achieve this planned increment of petrol pump price that they restricted supply of petrol to NNPC alone.”

Meanwhile, Nigerians have begun to take to social media to vent their chagrin on the ongoing fuel scarcity all over the country.

With the hashtag #FuelScarcity, Nigerians are presumably requesting for Buhari’s resignation, adding that he has failed the nation.
