The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has pointed accusing fingers at President Muhammadu Buhari, accusing him of plotting to turn Nigeria into an Islamic country.
Maintaining that Nigeria is a free society and would not be taken as an Islamic nation, the Ekiti governor insisted that the All Progressives Congress (APC), deceived Nigerians to steal the inheritance of the people. He maintained that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would reclaim the Presidency in 2019.
While speaking on Saturday at the thanksgiving and Supreme Court victory celebration of Governor Nyesom Wike that was organised by the Rivers State Chapter of the PDP at the Liberation Stadium in Port Harcourt, Fayose hailed the Supreme Court for being courageous in delivering a landmark ruling on the Rivers State governorship election.
“Rivers State is the soul of Nigeria and it is governed by a man who fears God. Your people will never go to Egypt. I want to appreciate the Supreme Court, which was courageous enough to clear the mess,” Fayose said.
“We have all summoned courage. They have deceived us to take our inheritance. We are going to get our inheritance back. I want to say one thing; they have started again.
“I want to reveal one secret here; they have started subtle moves to make Nigeria an Islamic nation. But God will not allow it. This was done in 1984, but it failed. I cannot run away; I am Ayo Fayose. If you hit me, you hit trouble, if I hit you, you will be in trouble.
“Nigeria is a free nation and this nation will not be taken for an Islamic nation. Today, I decree the return of a PDP government in 2019. They (APC) are here by chance, they will go by chance.”
In his remark, Wike said, “Let me reiterate that if any INEC officer is bent on rigging the rerun elections, let him first tell his wife and children where his will is located because he will be treated as a political armed robber.
“Popularity is tested on the ground. It is not by carrying army around to intimidate voters. As your governor, I don’t carry army around. How can a politician be campaigning with soldiers?
Wike said he would continue to threaten political armed robbers and stand firm against those who use guns to steal votes.
