Speaking at the Africa CEO forum in Kigali, Rwanda, yesterday, Governor Fayemi said elections in Nigeria have become more competitive calling for joint government in such situations.

He also argued that  a candidate cannot win an election with just 300 votes and take all.

He said: “With recent elections in Nigeria, it is becoming absolutely clear that it is not an either or, it is not whether its PDP or APC, especially when you have margins that are so narrow.

“Elections are becoming more competitive; people are winning elections with 300 votes. We need to be looking in the direction of collective engagement, whether you call that proportional representation or   you call it joint government

“Ultimately, you cannot win an election with  300 votes and take all, and the person who loses that election with 300 votes gets nothing, it is a recipe for disaster and as a country, we need to start looking in another direction.”
