Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti state, has asked Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, not to “wake a sleeping lion”.
Fayose was reacting to Adesina’s latest piece, where the presidential aide had given reason why President Muhammadu Buhari has refused to deal with the former governor and the Rivers State governor for their repeated combative remarks against the presidency who chose to tolerate the duo as a father of the nation.
But in a series of tweets on Sunday, Fayose said he decided not to comment about issues relating to Buhari because he has realised that “Buhari’s presidency is deaf and dumb”.
“On the comment by my brother and friend, @FemAdesina, on the President not “dealing with myself and Gov Wike,” President Buhari, in my opinion is an “Accidental President,” who is not only clueless but unconscious of happenings in his own Presidency,” he tweeted.
“A man who can’t defend or protect his immediate family is not in anyway better than an effigy. If not, those around him won’t be talking about a President “punishing” serving governors or even ordinary Nigerians as if they are his servants.
Fayose said failure to heed his warning about waking a sleeping lion could attract consequences that Adesina would be unable to cope with.
