May 3, 2016 – Buhari Is My Grandfather – Fayose Tells Nigerian Journalists In Ibadan

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state today described President Muhammadu Buhari as “my grandfather, “saying it is improper for him to abuse the President as widely claimed.

But the governor maintained that “being his grandfather” does not mean he would not criticise him when going in the wrong direction.

Fayose, who was a Guest Speaker at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) World Press Freedom Day lecture held on Tuesday in Ibadan, Oyo State, said he would rather die than concealing the truth.

Speaking on the topic “Journalism and Politics : Two Sides of A Coin,” the controversial governor said there were two things that people were afraid of, that is they were afraid to die and were also afraid to be locked away.

Fayose said his criticism of President Buhari is healthy for Nigeria and the people of the country to achieve economic and political development.

According to him, it would be absurd for all to watch and refused to talk even when the ship of the nation is drifting away dangerously to perdition.

Citing the illegal arrest and detention of some Nigerians by agents of the federal government without any evidence of criminal charges, he stated that it was against the rights of any citizen to be detained for several weeks without any proof.

While insisting that his unrelenting criticism of President Buhari was not due to bitterness or hatred, the guest speaker said “I don’t abuse Buhari because he is my grandfather. But we all must not sleep and face the same direction in this country. The people voted for him because they wanted change and I agreed with that because we really needed change.

“They told Nigerians that when they get into power there will be no subsidy and there will be no queues again but today fuel subsidy and queues are here.

“In the last 12 months, Nigerians have never had it so bad. Most generators have been exhausted.”

  1. This is the era of democracy, let there be freedom of speech. A fearless political thug well said “we all can’t sleep and face same direction” one must stand out. Grandpa, pls get something done fast, let there be light!

  2. The Action Gov. Said it all the way he sees it. The truth, The whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

    In addition to that, since the day I was born untill this
    “CHAIN“ Gvt took over, a litre of fuel has NEVER risen above N270 at worst, and it must be during Xmas time.

    But this time around, apart from the queue, and bcos they would not sell to you if you go with your gallon and not with a car, tricycle or a gen set, you had no option than to go to the black marketers where a gallon in my area was sold for N2000 cool Nigerian money, imagine that.

    Thats beside the point. The prices of services and every single items in the market has doubled that even a common Razor blade is now sold for N20.

    That is beside the point still. Apart from delayed salaries resulting to arreas, we are not completely through with Boko haram‘s menace and now, we have the fulani herdsmen on rampage. Wiping out a whole community and when you want to react, you have the DSS to contend with.
    Preidencial reaction-MUTE-

    That is beside the point again, the worst is that as soon as PMB was voted into office, he suddenly became an Eagle. Flying the (WWW.COM)
    Inspite of all this commotions, he has not really said or made any move towards bringing about the long desired so called Change, all these and many more are happening and some brainwashed people are calling for the crucifixion of sombody like the ABLE ACTION GOV. Fayose who has refused to play mute.
    God‘s Mighty Hands are upon you Sir, Gov. Fayose.

    D Hunter.

  3. Strong man. Isi agbo ncha! Haha! If Fayose were an animal, he would be a lion; if he were an Igbo masquerade, he would be Inyi Agba Oku; if he were a music, he would be gyration. And talking about gyration, he would be:

    My face no de fear your face (2*)
    My face na your face de fear (2*)
    Face fear face
    Face fear face for here.

  6. well its only in Nigeria people are not allow to express their feeling, democray create room for freedom of speech, freedom of movement etc, Nigeria is Autocracy where people are not allow to speak their minds. Fayose say anything you want.

  7. Fayose has no moral justification to criticise Buhari bicos he is a thief. This is the same person that looted Ekiti dry when he was first elected as the governor of the state before he was kicked out of the office….. In a civilised and sane society this thief supposed to be in jail by now instead of shouting like a mad dog every time on social media….. And shallow minded nigerian are busy praising him, calling him peoples governor, fearless man, their mentor, “I sorry for nigerians in Femi kuti voice”. This is the same governor that cannot even pay workers salaries for 5 months while other states have already paid their workers may salary yet some people are clapping for him simply bicos he’s criticising Buhari their number one enemy not knowing he’s been doing all these in other to escape justice for rigging his way into the office. Where u not in this country during Jonathan administration? Or then u were blind, deaf and dumb. Be deceiving the ignorant in ur state and those moron who sees u as their mentor, soon the wrath of God almighty will descend on all the enemies of this nation in Jesus name. @pa Salami may God bless u abundantly for speaking the truth, may God bless nigeria.

  8. Why should you be afraid of him in the first fayose..nah your conscience dey prick you

  9. This man is speaking the truth here. PMB is not changing anything, but rather making everything worst.

  10. hummm,we still av some goat in dis naion,why will someone say fayose is speaking the truth? pls fayose PMB is not ur grandfather,he know the number of grand children he have,go look for ur grand father for your village and I’m very sure you can talk to ur father the way u address PMB,and if u do,i pray you shall live long life to reap the fruit of ur hand.

  11. I think this forum needs more educated **** here…the response I read from those here is mostly sentimental and stupid..I’m sorry..for example look at salamis response…and Iwill be surprised if onels happens to be ****.he is too educated and intelligent to be one
