Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has responded to a statement by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, that his principal refused to deal with him and Governor Nyesom Wike despite his combative and truculent disposition.
Recall that in a piece titled ‘Wike Vindicates Buharists’, Adesina noted that the President would have taken action not only against Wike, but former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, for their “anti-Buhari tendencies” but he didn’t.
He was quoted as saying, “The President could have dealt with them in many ways, either overtly or covertly, but he let them be. He was a father ready to tolerance his many children, irrespective of their differing idiosyncrasies, propensities and predilections.”
Reacting, Fayose said Buhari is an accidental clueless President who is unconscious of things happening in his presidency.
According to him, Buhari’s presidency is deaf and dumb.
He tweeted, “the comment by my brother and friend, @FemAdesina, on the President not “dealing with myself and Gov Wike,” President Buhari, in my opinion, is an “Accidental President,” who is not only clueless but unconscious of happenings in his own Presidency.
“A man who can’t defend or protect his immediate family is not in any way better than an effigy. If not, those around him won’t be talking about a President “punishing” serving governors or even ordinary Nigerians as if they are his servants.
“Femi Adesina, do you realize I have been quiet for a while, having concluded that Buhari’s Presidency is deaf and dumb? So don’t wake a sleeping lion so as not to be confronted with consequences you can’t contend with.”
