Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has said that former President Goodluck Jonathan can’t be compared to President Muhammadu Buhari, stating that GEJ accepted defeat in the 2015 election.
Speaking in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, on Wednesday, Fayose stated that Nigerian do not need any counselling to vote Buhari out in 2019, adding that “Nigeria of our dream is not what we see now”.
”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.
“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.
