Afenifere Blasts Fayose;Calls Him A Parrot!

By Austin Edoho
The Governor of Ekiti,Ayodele Fayose,has been cautioned and advised by Afenifere, a Yoruba socio-political organisation,to focus on tackling the myriads of problems in his state rather than wasting his time and energy attacking President Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement issued on Wednesday by Yemi Alade, its chairman, and Biodun Akin-Fasae, the publicity secretary, Afenifere described Ayo Fayose as “a parrot who must talk at all times”.
Fayose, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been a fanatical critic of the Buhari-led government since inception,and on Tuesday, he urged president Buhari to resign due to his failing health
The statement, entitled “God, Heal Our Land,” fingered the current scarcity of fuel in Ekiti as being responsible for the hardship being faced by the people of the state.
Afenifere asked Fayose to face the issues confronting his state, particularly the lingering fuel scarcity caused by his dispute with Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (PMAN).
“It is shameful that Ekiti has become a butt of uncanny jokes and fast sliding to be a pariah among other states in Nigeria despite its God-given endowments,” the statement read.
“We wonder the whereabouts of Governor Ayo Fayose during the celebration of Democracy Day, a national activity. He was conspicuously absent from Ekiti for days only to resurface to abuse President Muhammadu Buhari requesting him to resign because of ill-health.
“Our governor is now a parrot who must talk at all times in and out of season; we believe that Mr. Governor should devote more time to think on how to move Ekiti forward instead of focusing and dissipating his energy on irrelevant issues.
“Afenifere also wish to sympathize with Ekiti workers, some of whom have received no salary this year, some since October 2016. And yet the governor feels unconcerned so far he can dole out a thousand naira and a cup of rice to the famished workers in the name of his stomach infrastructure, which many have described as a fraud.
“Currently the economic activities of the state has run berserk due to executive misapplication of strategic management of human and business relationship.
“Now, no one is sure of what happens next because of the misunderstanding between government and fuel marketers which has now degenerated into chaos.
“And this has been going on for two full weeks now and unfortunately, government is feeling comfortable and justifying its strategy by pulling down several of the fuel stations for flimsy excuse which not a few have interpreted as mere political vendetta and mere braggadocio on the part of the government.”
