The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fasoye, has taken another swipe at former President Obasanjo, calling him a man always “begging for relevance” and ministerial nominees at the Presidential Villa.
Speaking with journalist on Friday, the governor alleged that Obasanjo prostrated for President Buhari when during the last visit to the presidential villa.
His words: “The likes of Obasanjo were looming larger than life at that time, where are they now? They are at Ota; they are begging for relevance now. They go to the villa everyday to beg for ministerial nominees.”
“I was watching him in the papers, whether he was prostrating for Buhari or he was exchanging compliments, I don’t know. I can’t explain it. At certain times, you must know when to switch off; you must know when to turn off and you must know when to go to bed.”
“For me, whether they call me leader of opposition or not leader of opposition or call me Ayo Fayose, I’m not even chairman of PDP governors’ forum and I’m not desperate for anything but you can’t take away my voice. You can throw away my word but you can’t throw me away.”
“I remain resolute, I stand by the common man of this country. Tomorrow, Nigerians will appreciate me. It is in turbulent times that we know the strength of character of a man ”“ in turbulent times like this ”“ and it is shame on PDP leaders decamping because of relevance. They should keep their relevance; whatever we do ”“ good or bad ”“ will live after us.”
