Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said Nigeria hasn’t changed since 1979.
He made the statement on Thursday following the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.
Fayose spoke while fielding questions from journalists on Arise Television’s Morning Show.
According to him, there is a lot wrong with Nigeria, adding that he blamed the majority of the problem the country is facing on stakeholders and politicians.
Recall that the All Progressives Congress, APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu recently won the 2023 presidential election, beating close rivals Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s Atiku Abubakar and Labour Party’s Peter Obi.
Atiku and Obi have since headed to the courts to challenge the victory of Tinubu.
Fayose said, “There is a lot wrong with Nigeria. Since 1979 nothing has changed. I blamed the majority of the problem on stakeholders and politicians.
“When you asked Buhari in 2015 if you lose the election, would you concede defeat, he said I would win. He never conceived he would lose.
“I told you the senators, House of Rep members are returning to the House of Assembly. The system is sick. Nobody is protecting it.
“Rather than blaming INEC, we need to draw a red line like the army. Nothing was wrong in the election.”
