Ayodele Fayose, the governor of Ekiti State, has said Nigerians will vote out President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the 2019 elections over the abysmal performance of the current administration.
Fayose said this in a statement by his chief press secretary, Idowu Adelusi, on Wednesday, January 18, 2017.
He said the APC and President Muhammadu Buhari have made life more difficult for Nigerians.
“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,” Governor Fayose.
“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. Also, he is vindictive and apart from military nature, he does not have what it takes to run Nigeria. His government then was run by Idiagbon.”
Fayose also said Buhari is not as tolerant as former President Goodluck Jonathan.
“He is also not tolerant. You can’t compare him with Dr Goodluck Jonathan. Jonathan accepted defeat in an election he conducted,” he stated.
