Nigeria In Coma, Buhari Should Resign- Fayose

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said that the only

thing that will give Nigerians unspeakable joy as the country turns 60

will be announcement of the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari,

noting that the country is presently in coma and on life-support.

The former governor, who said there was nothing to celebrate in a

country bedevilled with insecurity, hunger, bare-faced corruption and

bad governance, added that President Buhari’s resignation will serve

as a life-restoring parting gift for Nigerians.

According to a statement by his Spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, in his

“The reality is that Nigerians are not happy with the present

situation of the country. More so that this present government appears

to be the worst in the history of Nigeria.

“Nigerians are not happy about the debts accumulated by this

government because they can’t see anything being done with the money


“They are angry that they can no longer go to their farms, travel on

the roads and even sleep in their homes without the fear of being

kidnapped, killed or raped by armed bandits.

“Nobody wants Nigeria to disintegrate. Rather,  Nigerians want to live

their lives normally without minding which party is in government, and

as it appears, living in Nigeria has been made extremely difficult by

this government. Painfully, most of those who are desirous of leaving

the country for greener pastures abroad are unable to do so because

advanced countries are banning Nigerians from coming to their


“The already weak shoulders of Nigerians are being made to carry too
