Former governor of Ekiti state and Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ayodele Fayose, on Saturday, said President Muhammadu Buhari’s claim on lifting 10.5 million citizens out of poverty is a ruse.
He said rather, Mr Buhari’s government lifted 10.5 million into poverty, death and anguish.
DAMMYLINK earlier reported that Buhari had in his Democracy Day speech claimed that his administration has lifted 10.5 million Nigerians out of poverty in the last two years.
Reacting to the President’s speech in a series of tweets on Saturday, Fayose said Mr Buhari’s claim was a “presidential lie” as his government has left more Nigerians into abject poverty.
“That claim of lifting 10.5m Nigerians out of poverty is ‘Presidential Lie’ or in local slang, ‘Lori iro’.”
“I’m sure what he meant to say was that he has lifted 10.5m Nigerians out of wealth into poverty, death and anguish,” Mr Fayose added.
