SHOCKING: With Buhari Out Of The Way, Fayose Reveals How He Plans To Emerge Nigeria’s Next President

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has disclosed his ambition to become Nigeria’s president, following President Muhammadu Buhari’s ill health.

The governor, who spoke on Sunday in Ado Ekiti, while hosting journalists to a dinner, said since the prophesy was from God and it was very clear that he would govern the country, the issue needed not to be debated, as he was only waiting for its manifestation.

Fayose, who is the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Governors’ Forum said: “It is according to God’s will that I will one day become the president of Nigeria,” he said.

He added: “It was the same prophesy that said I would return as governor of Ekiti when I was in the trenches that predicted that I will govern the whole country. Many did not believe the first one but it happened just as we are waiting for the manifestation of the second one.

“Do not bother to ask me questions as to how this will materialise, I also do not know how it will happen but all I know is that I shall one day occupy the presidential villa, not as a visitor but as president.”

He claimed to be in the good book of most Nigerians, whom he said would always be ready to make God’s plans for him come to pass at the appointed time.

Fayose told his guests at the dinner that he would use his position as chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum, to correct many ills of the society as well as fight the cause of the poor masses.

In reaction, the Lagos State chapter of the PDP has declined comment on Fayose’s presidential ambition. 

The chapter’s spokesman, Taofik Gani said: “I don’t have any comment on that.”

When also asked for reaction, the PDP spokesman in the South West zone, Dapo Adeyeye declined to comment.

However, a member of the party’s Board of Trustees and former Minister of Transportation, Chief Ebenezer Babatope, said it had never come to his knowledge that the PDP was backing anybody to run for the presidency or that anybody could become the president of the country through prophesy.

“But Fayose is free to say whatever he likes. This is democracy and anybody is free to express his desire,” he said.
