If you voted for Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, you need to openly beg Nigerians to forgive you for bringing calamity on the country, former Ekiti governor Ayodele Fayose has said.
Fayose made the comments after President Buhari reneged on his promise to appear before Nigerian lawmakers over the spate of insecurity in the country.
After Buhari broke his promise, attorney-general Abubakar Malami said the lawmakers had no constitutional power to summon the president over security matters.
“They overstepped their bounds,” Malami said.
But Fayose fired back by saying Buhari’s refusal to account for the mismanagement of national security before elected representatives is another proof the president is a “dictator”.
“I said on December 1, that President Buhari wouldn’t honour the House of Reps’ invitation on the worsening security situation in the country. Truly he didn’t,” the former Ekiti governor tweeted on Thursday.
“With a democratically elected president who does not have regard for other arms of government, how else do you describe a dictator?”
Fayose added that those who supported Buhari’s rise to power in 2015 should “publicly apologise for misleading Nigerians”.
