Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has hailed the victory of the

Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump in the United States

of America (USA) election, describing it as “the beginning of a real

change in Nigeria because those who imposed the present All

Progressives Congress (APC) government on Nigerians just lost out.”

The governor said; “Now that Trump has won, it portends hope for

Nigerians that the excesses of the President Muhammadu Buhari led

federal government will stop as the road has ended for those who

conspired to impose Buhari on Nigerians.”
Reacting to Trump's victory, Special Assistant to the Governor of

Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka quoted the governor

as saying in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday that he

believed that Trump will be able to tell President Buhari to respect

rule of law and sit at home to solve the country’s economic problems

instead of junketing around the world.
The governor said; “Trump presidency symbolises different things to

different people and nations. It symbolises God at work and a clear

departure from the old order.
“It is also a turning point for Nigeria and Nigerians, particularly

those controlling the federal government that must have to change

their ways as their allies who imposed them on us just lost out.

“Most importantly, President Barack Obama got what he did to Dr

Goodluck Jonathan. God bless President-Elect Donald John Trump!”

Describing the conduct of the elections as a lesson for Nigerians,

Governor Fayose said; “The US elections started and ended seamlessly.

The electoral umpire never meddled; the military, police and SSS did

not provide cover for ballot snatchers. No printing of doggy result

sheets. I think Prof Mahmood Yakubu and his INEC should learn from

this for posterity. They should stop aiding unpopular politicians to

rob the people of quality leadership.”
Speaking further, Governor Fayose said the election of Trump signals

the hope of a possible defeat of the APC government foisted on Nigeria

by the USA influence.
The governor said; “I prayed to God that if Trump will be the one to

save us from this present state of hopelessness, God should give him

victory. I prayed that God should let Trump win so that another

change can begin in Nigeria. I am happy that God answered my prayers

and gave Trump a resounding victory.
“I am also happy that God has humbled those who conspired to impose

the present APC government that has brought hunger, suffering, abuse

of human rights and destruction of the Electoral system on Nigeria and
