Fayose mocks Buhari over insecurity, calls him ‘the Jonah in our boat’

Former governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose has likened Muhammadu Buhari to the biblical Jonah in a boat while reacting to the current state of insecurity in the country.

He admitted that nothing is wrong with Nigeria as a country and Nigerians as a people, but blamed Buhari for how things have turned out in recent times.

In a tweet, he wrote: “Nothing is wrong with Nigeria as a country and Nigerians as a people. Buhari is the national mishap and the Jonah in our boat. This insecurity is one too many and painfully, Nigerians will have to endure till 2023. I pray God keeps us till then.”

In 2015, Fayose and Buhari were on opposite sides of that year’s general elections.
