Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for receiving defectors to the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Presidential Villa.
In a post on his Twitter handle, Fayose stated that Nigerians are not interested in such act, stressing that Nigerians are more interested in their security.
The former governor asked President Buhari to make himself available to Nigerians who can help solve the problems rocking the country.
“Nigerians are not interested in the President receiving political wanderers in the Villa. They are more interested in their well-being, especially security,” Fayose wrote.
“They want to see a president who’s proactive in handling affairs of the country,rather than receiving recycled politicians.
“Most importantly, Nigerians are not interested in how many politicians that decamp to APC, which is already a dead party.
“The President should rather make himself available to Nigerians who can help solve our unending financial and security challenges amongst others.
“Above all, I wish the President knows how disappointed Nigerians are about him and his failed promises.”
Naija News recalls that Buhari on Monday welcomed former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dimeji Bankole, into the ruling APC.
Daniel was a former presidential campaign manager of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar during the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election in 2019.
He was also the governor of Ogun State from 1999 to 2007, while Bankole was the Speaker of the House of Reps from 2007–2011 on the platform of the PDP.
The President alongside his Chief of Staff, Ibrahim Gambari, received both politicians into the APC at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Monday.
They were accompanied to the villa by the Chairman, Caretaker Committee of the APC, and Governor of Yobe, Mai Mala Buni, Governors of Jigawa State, Mohammed Badaru and Kebbi, Atiku Bagudu.
