Fayose Describes Trumps Victory As True Change, Mocks Obama
SAN FRANCISCO, November 09, (THEWILL) – Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has described the victory of the Republican billionaire Donald Trump, as the President-elect of the United States as “the beginning of real change in Nigeria saying those who imposed the present All Progressives Congress (APC) government on Nigerians had just lost out.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Fayose said by not getting the desired outcome of the election, President Barack Obama got what he did to former President Goodluck Jonathan adding that Trump's victory has brought a ray of hope to Nigerians, as it will curtail the “excesses” of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Now that Trump has won, 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,” Fayose said in a statement signed on his behalf by Lere Olayinka, his spokesman.
“Trump's 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.
“I am 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 its people.
“Most importantly, President Barack Obama got what he did to Dr Goodluck Jonathan.
“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 Mahmoud Yakubu and his INEC should learn from this for posterity. They should stop aiding unpopular politicians to rob the people of quality leadership.
“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.
“God bless President-Elect Donald John Trump.”
