Former Deputy Governor of Oyo state, Iyiola Omisore, on Thursday reacted to the Governor Ayodele Fayose’s declaration of his presidential bid ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Addressing members of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja, Omisore said, “Fayose has shown himself as a man of courage. Nigeria needs an energetic president. We don’t need a packaged President anymore.”
He also said that the change promised by the All Progressives Congress (APC) was a ruse; stressing that the country has only moved from an enviable position to retrogression where it is today.
“Change is a ruse. When you say ‘Change the Change’, you are just propagandising everything and you change nothing.
“If you are full of fear, you will die. It you tell the truth, you will die.”
The former Deputy Governor also aligned to the fact that Nigeria remained an indivisible country, but advocated for restructuring which he said would make all Nigerians true citizens of the country.
