Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, has advised the All Progressives Congress ( APC) presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, to take the outcome of the forth coming presidential election in good faith, saying he should stop inciting his supporters to cause mayhem after his defeat at the poll.
According to Fayose,Gen Buhari and some of the candidates of the APC for the National Assembly will meet their waterloos after the Saturday’s election,’while most of them will be forced to retire from politics
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti yesterday,Fayose boasted that Buhari and his supporters would be taught a bitter lesson that elections are not won on pages of newspapers and through sheer propaganda.
The governor said the impending defeat for the APC would put an end to propaganda, bad mouthing and the noise of the APC, “because lies will always fail, while truth will stand the test of time.”
Fayose said it was imperative to offer the advice because of Buhari’s antecedent of inciting people to violence as his own response to defeat in elections, adding that APC had always believed that any election it did not win was rigged.
He said, “The reason APC will fail woefully is because people have come to know it as a party which a predominantly peopled by a set of liars, deceits and hypocrites who should not be entrusted with the leadership of this country.
”Even leaders of thought in the North have since withdrawn their support when they realised the agenda of certain APC leaders against the North.
”I can say it categorically that Buhari will be beaten silly and I am advising Buhari and his APC to take the impending defeat philosophically as an act of God.
”May be after this election, the party will change its name from APC to Panadol.”
Speaking further, Fayose said the APC represented bad luck for
Nigeria, maintaining that there was nothing in the antecedents of the retired army general and other leaders of the APC that suggested any good thing for the nation and the people.
He added that Buhari’s stint as Head of State was characterised by pains and woes.
Meanwhile,the governor has said the APC should stop deceiving itself by saying the APC’s presidential candidate would win the Saturday’s election in the state
According to him,no amount of commissioned opinion polls would change the minds of the people of the state to vote for APC candidates
Fayose said Nigerians will never succumb to the deceit and falsehood of the All Progressives Congress (APC), saying; “It is self deceit taken too far for anyone to list Ekiti as part of States to be won by the APC in the Saturday’s presidential election.”
The governor urged Nigerians to disregard the orchestrated opinion polls being published since Saturday in some newspapers, adding that; “Fake opinion polls won’t assist the APC, the way it did not assist the party in the June 21, 2014 Ekiti governorship election.”
