APC in 5 years is more terrible than PDP in 16 years - Fayose backs Obasanjo

Nigeria becoming a failed state under Buhari, Fayose says he agrees with Obasanjo Nigeria becoming a failed state under Buhari, Fayose says he agrees with Obasanjo

The former governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, has agreed with former president Olusegun Obasanjo over his statement that Nigeria is becoming a failed state under President Muhammadu Buhari.

Fayose stated this on Saturday night, September 12, 2020 during an Instagram live chat with the popular journalist, Dele Momodu.

The former governor said though he usually does not agree with Obasanjo on national issues, all that the former president said of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari are becoming reality.

He lamented the insecurity and rising debt profile of the country just as he claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has performed more terribly in five years more than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 16 years.

His words: “Of all the Presidents, I don’t like Obasanjo ways, I tell you the truth; I don’t like his ways at all. Me and him we are not on the same page but Obasanjo is the only one-time Nigerian President that has helped this country here and there.

“That was why what Obasanjo said today (Saturday), in a way, I agree with him. We don’t normally agree but I agree with him."

Speaking further, the former governor said Nigeria will not progress until the electoral process is reformed.

“This APC in five years is dastardly, more terrible than the PDP in 16 years," he added.

Earlier, Obasanjo unleashed a fresh volley of attacks on the incumbent, President Buhari over his handling of the country's affairs.

The former president warned that Nigeria is fast drifting towards a failed state under the administration of President Buhari.

However, the presidency has also berated Obasanjo over his statement, describing the former president as 'Divider-in-Chief'.

A statement signed by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu on Sunday, September 13, accused Obasanjo of attempts to divide the nation.

“The difference is clear. From the lofty heights of Commander-in-Chief, General Obasanjo has descended to the lowly level of Divider-in-Chief,” Shehu said.
