Nigerians don’t need counselling to reject APC in 2019 – Fayose | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has said Nigerians don’t need counselling to reject the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) during the 2019 general elections in the country, saying the abysmal performance of the party has already made the people to grow weary of it.

This is just as the governor noted that there is a wide difference in the tolerance levels of former President, Goodluck Jonathan and the incumbent, Muhammadu Buhari.

He stated this in Ado-Ekiti during an interactive session with some journalists.

According to a press release by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, on Wednesday, he quoted the governor as saying that nearly two years of leading the country, the APC and President Buhari, had made life worse for the people rather than improving their lots.

‎”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 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.

“He is also not tolerant. You can’t compare him with Dr Goodluck Jonathan. ‎Jonathan‎ accepted defeat in an election he conducted,” he stated.

On the allegation of corruption against the PDP-led government, Fayose opined that those making such today would also have their books scrutinized by those coming after them.

He expressed surprise that former President Olusegun Obasanjo could also level corruption allegation against PDP, when he spent eight years as president on the platform of PDP which was in power for 16 years.

‎On whether a mega party would be formed to wrestle power from the APC, Fayose said time would tell, adding that he was a committed and loyal member of the PDP.

Answering question on the mode of selecting the PDP governorship candidate in Ekiti State come 2018, the governor said ‎public servants, artisans and people from different sectors in the state would form part of the collegiate that would nominate the party’s standard bearer.

He said it would be after collating opinions of the various groups that the aspirants would go for the primary of the party.

“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.

On the costs of capital projects being executed across the state, Fayose said over N12 billion was involved.

He stated that the flyover in Ado-Ekiti would gulp about N6 billion, the new Ojaba Market about N3.5 billion and that the three phases of the dualisation of Ikere main road would gulp N2.5 billion.

  1. Buhari is not tolerative but how many times were you incarcerated without security in your government house the way JEG did to Kwankwoso of Kano state when he never said half of the worst you are saying against Buhari now that time.
    The new emir of Kano then Sanusi Lamido Sanusi was driven from the palace and stayed for complete two weeks in Kano government house while the palace was surrounded by sternly looking security men. Nigerians will not forget easily how GEJ treated Ameachi through Wike/police/army. Tinubu was not exonerated from the winch-hunt, Buhari was nearly killed by orchestrated planned bomb blast in Kaduna. The northerners are still in possession of former governor Nyako's letter to GEJ concerning Boko haram and army deployment vis-a-vis ammunition. If you are thinking nobody will vote Buhari 2019, go to northeast and compare now against 2013-15, you will discover yourself being dreaming. No matter how slow is Buhari, construction is far far better than destruction. Anyway being talkative against Buhari will not stop EFCC and ICPC by end of next year knocking at your door.
