Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, during an interactive session with journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the capital of Ekiti State, said that Nigerians does not need advice to reject the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
He noted that the Buhari-led APC administration has only succeeded in making life difficult and worse for the people in the last two (2) years.
According to the statement released by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, he noted that;
“Nigeria of our dream is not what we see now. What I said about President Buhari are coming to pass. Before the polls, I said people should not vote for him. Nigerians are hungry and they are regretting. If a nobody contests against Buhari in 2019, Buhari will lose. Nigerians don’t need counseling to know that they should not vote Buhari in 2019. It is obvious.
“Majority of those who voted for him never really knew him as they were mostly in their 40s, people who were toddlers when he ruled Nigeria as a military man in the 80s. Also, he is vindictive and apart from military nature, he does not have what it takes to run Nigeira. His government then was run by Idiagbon.
“He is also not tolerant. You can’t compare him with Dr Goodluck Jonathan. Jonathan accepted defeat in an election he conducted,” he stated.
Fayose who reaffirmed his commitment to the PDP also expressed shock that former President Olusegun Obasanjo described the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a corrupt party when he was president for eight (8) years out of the 16 years PDP was in power.
Concerning who would become the flag bearer for PDP in the 2018 Ekiti State Governorship election, he said that public servants, artisans and others would nominate their flag bearer.
“Nobody will be stopped from aspiring, but we will go through that system to ensure that our candidate is the choice of the people of the state. After that, the party’s primary would select, but whatever results we have got from the different groups could guide in party members making the final choice,” he said.
