Again, Gov Fayose blows hot, bombs Obasanjo’s stance on Igbos, gives Igbo people very powerful advice.
THE Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose, has dismissed Obasanjo avowed call and choice for Igbo presidency in 2019 federal elections.
The fiery Ekiti governor said that the former Nigerian leader Chief Obasanjo should not be taken seriously because he speaks in the appearance of Esau but in the deceptive voice of Jacob saying in his capacity as one of his former foot soldiers he knows what stuff the former president is made of.
He said he, for one, does not take him seriously because Obasanjo is only seeking political relevance and that he knows him better than anyone else.
According to him, ”I don’t take him seriously. By his nature, Obasanjo wants relevance at all times. We have worked with him and used to be his foot soldiers. I know him more than anybody in this country. He just talks, so that he would remain relevant.”
On his frequent remarks and comments on national issues, he chided the former leader for this and reminded Nigerians if they have ever seen any other former Nigerian leader behaving the way Obasanjo often does.

His words: ”Do you see any other former President in the country running his mouth like his? If it is not the fact that he has a voice as a former head of state, where is Obasanjo’s constituency? Who are his followers? How many votes can Obasanjo win in his ward? We must speak the truth and we must face the truth. Let’s give it to him, as a leader in this country, whoever has governed this country before would remain our leader, but he must equally recall and admit that he is becoming more fairly negative than working towards national building.”
