Outspoken governor of Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose on Friday in Ado Ekiti boasted that he would become the next president of Nigeria. He stated this when he spoke at a meeting with political office holders at the Government’s House, Ado Ekiti. Fayose, perhaps the fiercest critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari government, said he had the attributes to wrestle power from the All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.
The governor also claimed that former governors Segun Oni and Kayode Fayemi would not succeed should they go ahead and contest the 2018 governorship election in the state.
He said, “Just because Ayo Fayose has won a second term to become governor of Ekiti, some people also think they can come back now, but I want to tell them that it is not possible. I am the man wholeheartedly loved by Ekiti people because of the many developmental projects that have brought great infrastructural and developmental advancement to Ekiti.
“If you go around Ekiti, you will see my handiwork dotting every nook and cranny of the state. This is why I am the man who every Ekiti people will follow in 2018.”
Fayose reminded his listeners that he has a penchant for taking powers from people. saying he defeated two former governors (Niyi Adebayo and Fayemi) in governorship elections.
“I have penchant for taking powers; that one in Buhari’s hand. I will take it. I’m going straight to that villa. I’m the next president.
“I want to be the next president of Nigeria. My own won’t be this change that has brought nothing, we are going to represent the people well and tell them the truth.”
