According to the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, who has always been the president’s rival, President Muhammadu Buhari, is already saying farewell to Aso Rock in 2019, because he has already been rejected by Nigerians.
This was revealed in Ado Ekiti, during an interactive session with some Journalists, by Fayose, regretting that Buhari has made life worse for the people of Nigeria than improving their lots within the two years of his administration.
Meanwhile, reports by Post-Nigeria, have it that the President has been under lots of pressure to hand over power in 2019, to a new successor.
According to Fayose, no counseling is needed by the people of Nigeria before Buhari is rejected in the general elections of 2019.
He said the people have already grown weary of Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, due to its poor performance.
“Nigeria of our dream is not what we see now. All 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 counselling 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. Apart from his military nature, he does not have what it takes to run Nigeria.
“His government then was run by (Tunde) 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.
However, Fayose, was surprised owing to the fact that former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, could also level corruption allegation against the PDP, whereas he had spent eight years as President on the platform of the party.
Though he said he remained a committed member of the PDP, Fayose, also revealed that time will tell whether there will be a formation of a mega party who will contest power with the APC.
