Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to fufill his electoral promises to Nigerians
Mr Fayose stated this when he appeared on Channels Tv on Sunday, January 22. “I am not here to massage ego, the FG should begin to fulfil the previous promises, enough of these empty promises.”
He also spoke on various national issues including the kidnapped Chibok girls which he described as hoax.
“On Chibok girls, even Ekiti State, the Fountain of Knowledge does not have any school where 250 pupils will be writing Physics at the same time, Physics students that can't speak English language,” he said.
Fayose who is the chairman of PDP Governors' Forum said “he can always speak my mind on issues without being the Chairman, being a Chairman of PDP Governors is an added advantage.”
On the recent arrest of Premium Times journalists, he noted that; “I told you a dictator starts with someone, they started with the politicians, then the judiciary, now they are on Journalists. My predictions are already coming to pass, watch out.”
He said he doesn’t follow multitudes to lie, “I am a blunt person, you may not like me but you have to live with it, people are at liberty to choose what to believe.”
Fayose said the government does not have an economic plan that can last the test of time.
He worried why the SSS submitted a damning report on Magu yet nothing was done noting that the same SSS report forced judges to step down. “It’s different laws for different people in this administration.”
“The protest at EFCC of against my emergence as Chairman of PDP Governors' Forum is political, they are miscreants, if they have anything against me, they should keep their gun powder dry till I am through in 2018,” he added.
He urged President Buhari to use the carrot and stick approach to solve the Niger Delta problem.

He ended his interview by asking the President to do “something very quickly about the hunger ravaging Nigeria.”
