Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has hailed the inaugural speech of President Muhammadu Buhari, describing it as a sign that the president is ready to serve all Nigerians, not minding their political affiliation.

The governor said, “The content of the president’s speech showed a man who is desirous of making a success of his administration.”

According to the statement issued by the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor also hailed the immediate past president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, describing him as a good democrat.

The governor said; “Nigerians, including those who voted and did not vote for President Buhari were eagerly waiting for his inaugural speech.

“The speech, if followed in practice shows that he is ready to govern Nigeria. It is a sign that the President is ready to live above board and lead a government that accommodates all.

“It is my prayer that the Almighty Allah will grant our President the courage and wherewithal to make a success of his administration and further deepen democratic governance, especially in a confederation like Nigeria by sustaining the rule of law.”

Speaking further, Governor Fayose, who urged the president to make sure that his name was not used surreptitiously by anyone to muscle the opposition, added that as the President of Nigeria, he had the constitutional duty to protect all Nigerians, not minding the political party they belong to.

While praising former President Goodluck Jonathan for his love for peace and progress of the country, Governor Fayose said; “With what Dr. Goodluck Jonathan did, history will never forget him as the man who laid an enduring foundation for democracy in Nigeria.”

He said Friday’s event midwifed by Dr. Jonathan and President Buhari proved to the whole world that the black people of Africa were capable of piloting their own affairs.
