When I saw ‘old man’ Buhari beside the president of France, I said ‘Oh my God’ – Fayose

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, has fired yet another shot at President Muhammadu Buhari whom he believes is too old to lead the country.

At a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, the governor commented on the visit of President Emmanuel Macron of France to Nigeria.

Aged 40 years, Macron is one of the youngest leaders in the world. His Nigerian counterpart is 75 years old.

Fayose said Nigerians deserve a younger president.

“We are having these problems in our country because an old man is our president. When I saw the picture of President Buhari and the president of  France, I said ‘Oh my God’,” he said.

“This country does not deserve to be led by an old man.”

Fayose also said he had been asked to come out to receive Buhari who is expected in the state on Tuesday but that he would not do so.

It is a tradition for governors, irrespective of political differences, to receive the president whenever he visits their states.

“I got a letter yesterday, they said I should come and receive Mr. President because he is coming on the 10th. But I’m not coming. Receive him for what? I cannot receive him. The president has not done 100 metres of road in Ekiti,” he said.
