Former Governor of Ekiti State and South west coordinator of the Atiku/Obi campaign , Ayodele Fayose, has said that the forthcoming election result would shock the ruling party.
He asked that President Muhammadu Buhari should not glory in the past electoral victory he had in the north, as that has been eroded by his poor performance.
Fayose said Buhari would be seriously disappointed in the February election as there would be lots of surprises.
“ In 2014/15, I have stood as an outstanding Nigerian who said Buhari is not fit to be president and I still stand by that , all the governors of the north-east are coming to Abuja to cry, I am not one of the crying governors.
” The killings in Nigeria in the last three and half years are more than the killings that Nigeria has witnessed from independence to the time of Buhari’s government.
” I want to assure you that the same northern Nigeria will disappoint President Buhari in the coming elections. Let us stand firm for this party, let us remain united and focused and I assure you we will win in February 16″, he said.
Fayose said all these at the inauguration of Atiku/Obi campaign council in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday which he commissioned
Fayose while reacting to the factional group led by Senator Biodun Olujimi, said that he has been fair to all caucuses of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state in constituting members of the state’s campaign council by allowing every leader of the caucuses to choose representatives to be part of the council he has inaugurated, adding that:
“ I won’t ever fight for leadership. It is the people who will identify their leaders. I am not contesting any election’.
Fayose also urged members of PDP to remain united and focused and assured them that the party would win the forthcoming Presidential with Atiku Abubakr becoming the next President of the nation.
