Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, stated on Thursday that despite the results of the 2023 presidential election, nothing has changed in Nigeria since 1979.
Appearing on the Morning Program of Arise Television, Fayose spoke as he answered questions from reporters.
He said that there are several issues with Nigeria and that stakeholders and politicians are mostly to blame for these issues.
Recall that Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) just defeated Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) to win the 2023 presidential election.
Atiku and Obi have since then gone to court to challenged Tinubu’s victory, citing discrepancies.
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.”
