Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has condemned the re-election bid of President Muhammadu Buhari by Northern governors. Seven Northern governors after a meeting with President Buhari declared him fit to run for a second term based on their belief in his governance. El-Rufai among other governors told state correspondents that Buhari is leading the country in the right direction, therefore, needs to seek re-election.
Fayose, however, described comments by the northern governors in time of fuel scarcity and herdsmen killing as unfair to the plights of Nigerians. Fayose via his official twitter handle wrote “No fuel, killings in Benue, Taraba, Adamawa, Rivers, etc. But some people’s response to all these is to endorse President Buhari for second term. What a way to treat Nigerians with contempt.”
