Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari lacked the required mental capacity to rescue the country from the present economic problems.
Reacting to a call by the Minister of Budget and National Planning, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma, calling on states to accept the Treasury Single Account (TSA), Fayose said it was an insult for a federal government that appeared to be clueless to be preaching its unworkable policies to other tiers of government.
“The rate at which Dollar is rising, we will soon begin to talk about one Us Dollar being equivalent to N500. As at today, it is already more than N400 to $1,” Fayose said in a statement issued on Friday, by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.
“Workers are being sacked on a daily basis, while prices of goods are rising astronomically and Foreign Reserve is declining on daily basis. Yet, all that this All Progressives Congress (APC) and President Buhari’s Federal Government can be preaching is for States to accept TSA as if that will stem the tide of the rising hunger and sufferings that is ravaging Nigeria.
“Methinks these people should just face the reality of their failing government and seek for help from those who know better than them instead of carrying with this attitude of ‘we know it all’ so that the economy of this country will not collapse totally,” Fayose said.
