Nigeria experiencing the worst
form of Nepotism in the history
of government– Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that
Nigerians were suffering under the All
Progressives Congress (APC) government of
President Mohammadu Buhari because “the
country is in the hands of wrong managers who
do not know what to do and out of nepotism,
not ready to be assisted by those who know.” In
a statement released today by his Special
Assistant on Public Communications and New
Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said Nigeria was
experiencing the worst form of nepotism in the
history of government in the country.
“Nepotism is the reason our President
discarded competent people in his party
that should be running the government
with him and opted for his relatives,
friends, in-laws and very close
associates. The only qualification to hold
key positions in the Presidency is to know
a certain nephew of the President or be a
member of his family, that’s nepotism
and what nepotism breeds is
incompetence. The most influential
person in the Presidency today is said to
be one Mamman Daura, who is a nephew
of the President. Personal Assistant to
President Buhari is said to be the son of
Mamman Daura while the State Chief of
Protocol said to be married to Mamman
Daura’s daughter. It is also the height of
nepotism that apart from just two, all
security chiefs and heads of all the
paramilitary agencies in Nigeria, as well
as all the political-heads overseeing all
the military and paramilitary arms and
agencies are from the North of Nigeria,”
Fayose said.
He added that President Buhari was obviously
being tormented by fear of the unknown which
he described as the main reason people take to
“As a leader, you don’t need to fear
anything. But the moment a leader peeps
into the future, realising that his lack of
capacity could have consequential effects
on him, such a leader will definitely resort
to nepotism to protect himself. Also, the
moment a government is unable to
guarantee the existence of the people, it
must resort to nepotism to protect itself
and that is exactly what is being
witnessed in Nigeria, especially with the
lopsided appointments of security chiefs
and key functionaries of the Federal
Government,” he said.
While lamenting the poor state of the economy,
Fayose said;
“Most of those people that aided the
emergence of President Buhari must be
having a rethink now, but it is too
late! Interestingly, political affiliation has
nothing to do with hunger, poverty and
lack. Exchange rate was less than N200
to $1 when President Buhari took over
power, as at today, it has gone beyond
N400 to $1 and Naira is still undergoing
a free fall. One bag of rice was less than
N8, 000 as at May 2016, it is now N20,
000. Kerosene is now beyond the reach of
the masses. Nigerians voted for change
because the APC promised them
solutions to the country’s problems, but
all we hear every day from the APC
Federal Government are complaints upon
complaints as if Nigerians elected a
government of complaints. Obviously, the
APC government has failed Nigerians and
the President has resorted to putting his
immediate family members and close
associates in key government positions to
protect himself from the fear of the
unknown that has enveloped him.”
