Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has faulted the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to halt herdsmen attacks that have continued to claim lives across the country.
The fierce critic of the president made this known while reacting to the recent killing of 17 worshippers in St. Ignatius Catholic Church, Ayar Town in Benue.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Taiwo Adelusi, Fayose said that the unabated killings showed that the president is presiding over a “killer government” and has become “helpless”.
He said, “ This is a killer government . It is shameful that Nigerians are dying daily with Buhari clueless and incompetent to handle the crisis.
“It is beyond dispute that the Buhari administration has lost the battle against insurgency and the Fulani herdsmen . Buhari is helpless as he is reduced to offering condolences on a daily basis.
“Nigerians are dying on a daily basis. Innocent souls are being wasted by herdsmen and the Buhari administration has lost all moral right to continue in office . Why is he still sitting in office ? Doing what, if I may ask.”
