Buhari, Fayose In Verbal War Over Nigerian Economy

President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state are in a war of words over the state of Nigeria’s economy.

The Ekiti Governor was the first to fire the salvo when he accused Mr. Buhari’s administration of paying out the lowest-ever federally distributed allocations among the three tiers of the government.

The Nigerian government had shared a little over N389 billion for the month of October to the three tiers of government.

Mr. Fayose reacted to the low figure while speaking at the graduation ceremony of College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, in which he asked Mr. Buhari to come clean to Nigerians on the state of the economy.

Mr. Buhari reacted angrily to Mr. Fayose’s insinuations by warning the governor to stop making unsubstantiated allegations about the nation’s economy.

Mr. Buhari, who spoke through his media aide, Garba Shehu, said Mr. Fayose’s comments were reckless, adding that “the governor didn’t get his facts correct”.

Mr. Shehu also faulted Mr. Fayose’s claims that the N389 billion shared for the month October was the lowest ever in the history of the country, saying the lowest ever allocation to the three ties was issued by the Peoples Democratic Party government of Goodluck Jonathan.
