Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, in a latest outburst on his archenemy, President Muhammadu Buhari, has claimed that he knows where Buhari hid his assets.
Fayose, who did not hide his displeasure over the recent public declaration of assets by Buhari, and to his party, the All Progressives Congress [APC], described it as a ploy to get “the applause of the gullible”.
In a statement released on Wednesday, through Lere Olayinka, his spokesman, the garrulous governor said:
“We know where everybody, including President Buhari’s wealth are hidden, and the APC should not provoke the governor to such an extent that he will begin to reveal their hidden assets,” he said.
“Nigerians demanded that President Buhari must declare his assets publicly because that was what the President promised when he was seeking the people’s votes.
“It was part of President Buhari’s electoral promises that his assets will be declared publicly and up till today, he has not done that.
He also vehemently rebuked Buhari for hoodwinking Nigerians with the lies that he has just two houses in Kaduna and Daura his hometown in Katsina State.
He said, “We have only been told that the President, whom they said was poor to the extent that he had to take bank loan to buy his party’s nomination, is now the owner of a mini estate in Asokoro, Abuja that is worth over N3 billion.
“The APC should rather explain to Nigerians how a man they said had no houses anywhere apart from Daura and Kaduna suddenly became owner of houses and landed properties in Kano, Abuja and Port Harcourt.
“They should also tell Nigerians what happened when President Buhari headed Petroleum Trust Fund (PTF) and why they lied to Nigerians that the president was poor, thereby obtaining Nigerians’ votes by trick.”
The governor also warned the APC not to provoke him to reveal the hidden assets of their members.
