Fayose knocks Buhari over ‘speechless’ response to #EndSARS impasse



ALLEDGED N6.9bn FRAUD: EFCC opens trial against Fayose

The Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday, expressed disappointment with President Muhammadu Buhari’s response to the current situation in the country.

Fayose, who reacted to President Buhari’s nationwide address on the #EndSARS impasse on his Twitter handle, described the broadcast as “speechless speech.”

He simply wrote: “I warned Nigerians.”

The controversial ex-governor had warned Nigerians against voting for the president in the 2015 presidential election.

President Buhari had said in his address that Nigerians mistook his administration’s swift disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) as a sign of weakness.

He stressed that the Federal Government’s action was twisted by some unnamed individuals for their selfish and unpatriotic interests.

He, therefore, appealed to the protesters to take advantage of the various initiatives put in place by the government to make lives better and more meaningful for the citizens.

Buhari also counseled the youths to resist the temptation of being used by some “subversive elements” to cause chaos in the country.
