Trump’s inauguration: APC attacks Fayose for mocking Buhari, says he lacks understanding of international politics


The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has lambasted the state governor, Ayodele Fayose for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari over his non-invitation to the inauguration of Donald
Trump as the President of the United States of America, USA.

Recall that Fayose had mocked the President, saying his non-invitation to Trump’s inauguration is an indication that he has lost his international popularity.

But the state chapter of the party in a statement on Sunday by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, described Fayose as a “reckless interloper and shameless busy-body” who dabbles into matters he has no competence in order to present a larger-than-life image of himself.

Olatunbosun maintained that the governor was a man who lacked the deep understanding of international politics and diplomacy and who had “elevated gangsterism, hooliganism and thuggery to an act of political valour”.

The statement said, “Because Fayose is not educated enough to understand the dynamics and perspectives of international politics and diplomacy, he has reduced the American international and diplomatic politics to the beer parlour politics of muscle-flexing he runs in Ekiti State where all issues are trivialised and individualised for personal benefits to the detriment of the greater good of the people.

“It is a pity that an uninformed upstart is the one calling the shots in the Land of Honour in Ekiti State where knowledge-based information and integrity are the fountains of our development.

“Fayose does not have this, hence he was uninformed about the information in public space that Heads of States and Governments across the globe had no need to attend Trump’s inauguration in Washington but would be represented by their heads of missions in America.

“Apparently not aware of this information and unwilling to be educated on the new American policy thrust, Fayose rolled out the drums in ignorance to celebrate the absence of the President of his country on that important world stage.”

Olatunbosun noted that Fayose’s inadequacies and garrulous conduct did not represent the collective attitude of Ekiti people.

He said, “Nigerians should see Fayose as lacking in Ekiti finesse and, therefore, should be seen as an unblemished poster boy of what he is generally known for all over the world as can be explained in many alleged criminal cases hanging on his neck in courts and the agencies of government, which does not represent the image of Ekiti people in the context of national politics.

“Because of Fayose’s moral nature and value that reeks of boisterous and violent essence of a street life, it has become practically impossible to purge him of always trivialising honourable and responsible political opposition platform that he has turned to the column of fools and plateau for jejune jesters.”
