Fayose took a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, Adams Oshiomhole and the All Progressives Congress.
Fayose Shades Buhari
Ayo Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, delivered a trifecta of criticism on Thursday, while overseeing the Bayelsa primary election of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Speaking on Thursday in Yenagoa, Fayse yet again criticised Buhari for his appointment of Amina Zakari, as chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
He said: “I have complained very clearly about the choice of the INEC chairperson. Nobody can give us an INEC chairman that is his daughter or in-law. This is our Country and nobody can run out of Nigeria.
“Therefore, we are watching the INEC and its activities. We will not allow you to play pranks. This is an Ijaw state and so they are going nowhere. This is a PDP controlled state. No hidden agenda will work in Bayelsa.”
“In our place, it is one stone that scatters so many birds. Your (Dickson) stone will scatter their birds. I’ve worked with them before. I know their style and antics. So fear not.
“I am conducting this PDP primary in Bayelsa transparently in line with the PDP guidelines. I am not ready to dodge out of this stadium to run away. The truth will stand the test of time and speak for itself.
“You have won the battle already. This is not a party where they will do one primary today and cancel it tomorrow. In this our own, there will be no cancellation. This is an authority in Bayelsa.
“Nigeria respects my voice because I am not given to frivolities and propaganda. I am here to conduct an election that will stand the test of time.
Speaking of Goodluck Jonathan, he said: “You gave us the relative peace we are enjoying. You remain a man after my heart. I am a governor that has no apology for supporting you. Everybody must remember that it is a virtue to be courageous to defend the truth.
“Jonathan is a man to be recognised in the whole world. He conducted an election that worked against his interest but he gave it up. Jesus Christ did exactly the same.”
