Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Saturday berated yesterday?s announcement of Federal Government?s decision to reduce the pump price of petrol from N87 to N85 per litre, claiming that it is a continuation of the deceit propagated by All Progressives Congress, APC-led government.
This was as he dared the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed to relocate to Sambisa in Borno state or move around in Yobe state without heavy military security if indeed he was sure that Boko Haram terrorists have been defeated.

The Governor, who spoke in a statement issued by his media aide, Lere Olayinka, stressed that ?only God?s intervention can save Nigeria from the present economic and security problems as it is glaring that the man running the affairs of the country at the federal level does not have any answer to the problems.?
According to him, ?Even the Holy Bible said in James 1:5 that if anyone lacks wisdom, he should ask God and as it is, Nigerians must assist the President in asking for wisdom and understanding to tackle the country?s economic and security problems before Nigeria is further plunged into more woes with the federal government?s decision to borrow N2.2 Trillion, which translates to N6.066 billion per day to finance the 2016 Budget.?

Fayose, while describing the announced reduction of petrol pump price from N87 to N85 per litre as a continuation of APC government?s governance by deceit, said: ?Even secondary school students of economics know that you cannot deregulate and regulate at the same time.?

He said; ?it is only in a confused and clueless economy that government will plan to spend more when revenue has reduced by more than 50 percent.?

While predicting that petrol will not sell below N100 per litre in 2016, Fayose said; ?Even now that the price is N87 and subsidy is yet to be removed, Nigerians are buying at between N130 and N300 per litre. What will now happen when they remove subsidy and allow market forces to determine the price??

He further described Lai Mohammed?s claim that Boko Haram insurgents had been defeated as strange, saying; ?Nigerians will only take the minister serious if he relocates to either Sambisa in Borno State or Yobe State and stay there till the end of March, next year without heavy military security.?
The statement further read: ?To show their level of confusion, two days after the Minister of Information declared that Boko Haram had been defeated, President Buhari said the government would persuade Boko Haram to abandon their fight. One then wonders how the same Boko Haram insurgents Lai Mohammed said were already defeated will have to be persuaded to abandon their fight.
?Interestingly, the same Boko Haram that Lai Mohammed said had been defeated reported attacked Kimba village in Gur ward of Biu Local Government Area of Borno State yesterday night.
?Therefore, the Information Minister must show Nigerians how peaceful Borno and Yobe States have become after the defeat of Boko Haram by relocating to either Sambisa, Maiduguri or Yobe.?
