Fayose Sad Over Buhari’s Refusal To Wish Him Happy Birthday
Governor Ayodele Fayose is not very happy with President Buhari.
Now this is not exactly a new thing as Fayose is a fierce critic of the Buhari administration, and so is constantly displeased with him.
But this time around, the displeasure stems from something else. It is Buhari's refusal to wish him a happy birthday that's left Fayose hot and bothered.
The governor of Ekiti state who turned 57 years on Wednesday said he wished President Muhammadu Buhari had called to congratulate him.
Fayose, who stated this while fielding questions from journalists at Government House, Ado-Ekiti on his birthday, said the President should show love even to those who are not his party members.
He said, ”My wishes on my 57th birthday as Ayo Fayose are many but one of them which will interest you is that I wish President Buhari’s congratulatory call would have woken me up today as one of the governors in the country, as a father of the nation and as a leading opposition figures in the country.
"A fearless young man who believes that things should be done rightly, to show himself as a father of all, preaching that we must extend love to everybody not only. Those in his political party.
“The president would have made a difference if he had extended such gesture to others beyond his political party. Such a congratulatory message should have been conveyed through his minister of information. I would have loved to either wake up receiving a congratulatory call from him or read it in the papers. But since it is not coming, it is not a big deal to me and I take no offence on it.
“I am not Buhari’s enemy. Opposition is the strength of democracy, it ensures that the electorates get value for their votes. Those who criticise your government are not. Your enemies, they are catalysts to your growth as a government.
