Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has made some shocking predictions about what Nigerians can expect to happen in 2016.
The two-term governor said that the controversial ‘Bill for an Act to Prohibit Frivolous Petitions and Other Matters’, popularly called the anti-social media bill, presently in consideration by the Senate was a plot by the All Progressives Congress to hide corruption and prevent Nigerians from exposing them.
Fayose made the assertions at a press briefing in Lagos on Sunday, December 13, 2015.
He also said the intention of the Senate to gag the social media is one of the wishes of the President Buhari.
Fayose said: “We are going to release a lot of things. They have attempted to cow everybody and that is why they are sponsoring the anti-social media bill in the National Assembly. They want to cow the press and the people. I am surprised that the media is quiet about this bill. The press can’t talk again, they are afraid and it shouldn’t be so.
“Most of those who supported Buhari one way or the other will regret it because when you promote a lion and don’t remember to guard the claws and the jaws of that lion, one day, you will end up in its stomach,” he warned.
Here are 5 of the predictions Governor Fayose made about Nigeria in 2016:
1. Corruption under Buhari will be on the increase, poverty in the nation will be at its highest in history. He said: ‘I want to tell you that power generation will be at its lowest ebb in 2016. Our earnings will be low. I can’t remember some (predictions) but I will address another press conference to tell Nigerians what to expect. We cannot continue with this deceit and propaganda.’
2. Power generation would drop while 6.7 million Nigerians would lose their jobs.
3. Chibok girls would not return in 2016.
4. There will be removal of oil subsidy within the first-quarter of next year.
5. There will be so much disobedience to court orders.
“In 2016, our girls will never come back because the BBOG people has started enjoying the booty. Why will an armed robber be fighting a pickpocket?”
Speaking on the probe of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, Fayose urged the President to “make public, the monies spent by the Office of the National Security Adviser in the last 16 years.”
