Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Peter Ayodele Fayose, has predicted that Kogi state governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello of the All Progressives Congress, will soon be removed from office.
Fayose declared the ‘prophecy’ while speaking on Tuesday, at an event organised by the Oyo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists to celebrate the World Press Freedom Day in Ibadan.
“People say that I abuse Buhari. I am not abusing him because he is like my grandfather, but I know the history. Eighty per cent of people that voted for Buhari in the West did not know him. They are between 18 and 40. They voted because they wanted change desperately and I agree with them. He left government 32 years ago so they did not experience his rule.”
“Today, the Peoples Democratic Party is no longer in government so they should stop blaming the PDP. They told us that dollars would become one to one but where is that today. The regime of fuel subsidy is gone and we now have food subsidy. Queue is back at filling stations. Whatever I say is divine. The next to happen will be removal of Kogi State governor. I have not lost a battle in my life and when I lost one, I came back to win.”
“We have never had it so bad like in the last 12 months; electricity has gone to zero and we no longer have light in our houses. I am here to tell Nigerians that we are in the wrong direction because you cannot give what you don’t have. There is time to retire because of the diminishing return on the functionality of the brain. At 75, my mother can do little.”
“When you want to deal with corruption, do it whole heartedly. Don’t say because this person has now joined the All Progressives Congress, he is now a saint. When I was supporting ACN, they gave me many titles. Now that I am no longer with them, they see me as enemy.”
