These appointees of yours are needlessly and embarrassingly flexing muscle tissue and are heating up the polity; they look like having fun and regaling themselves on the rate of the nation. The economy has collapsed and the individuals are suffering. there is starvation and anger by no means ahead of witnessed within the land.
“but, Presidential appointees are preoccupied with trivialities and inanities. carrying of uniform has turn into a Supreme court docket subject. Why a person who will not wear uniform went to take a uniformed job beggars belief. How somebody who has so little respect and scanty regard for an business enterprise just like the Nigeria Customs service must be made to move the identical service provider should baffle right-thinking Nigerians.
“In other societies the place people have a sense of decency and decorum, folks with such irreconcilable differences would honourably resign their place.
“And where a government finds itself unable to successfully govern, as we appear to have right here on our hands, it behoves the head of that executive to do the requisite.
“Mr President, let it now not be stated that you’ve got lost grip of your executive. Nigerians are beginning to believe, as a remark of truth, your wife’s allegation that a cabal has taken over your executive. Your defence that your spouse belongs to “the opposite room” now rings hollow within the ears of Nigerians.
“The announcing is that he who appoints may also disappoint. Your appointees are your introduction and it is an aberration after they turn out to be larger and more highly effective than you. Mr President, the tail is wagging the dog right now. you have to take effective and agency action to reverse this unsightly and unwholesome pattern.
“i am also the top of a executive and i understand how it really works. The ‘consortium of presidents’ round you, as Nigerians now derisively confer with these ‘highly effective’ and larger-than-life appointees of yours who take delight in using roughshod over the polity and desecrating the hallowed chambers of justice, must be cut to dimension. if you need assist, Nigerians are able to queue at the back of you on this problem to put an end to your appointees’ shenanigans.
“Mr President, I, Ayo Fayose, volunteer that will help you on this regard. As a state governor, I can’t brook a tenth of what you are taking out of your appointees. None of my appointees can disrespect and disparage the Ekiti State house of assembly like your appointees are doing to the national assembly.
“Did you take heed to what a exceptional Senator of the Federal Republic mentioned this week on the floor of the crimson chamber; that for the 59 days that you just have been away on medical depart in London, your appointees have been gentle and behaved themselves and there have been no killings in any a part of the united states by rampaging herdsmen, however now you might be again and the troubles are again with us again? we all prayed for your fast recovery and swift return to place of work. should we now feel sorry about doing so?”
