According to his Spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, the former governor, who was speaking on today’s democracy day celebration, said it was painful that “legacy of free, fair and transparent elections bequeathed to Nigeria by the PDP government has been destroyed, with elections in the country now being held at gun point.”

Fayose said peace and prosperity can only be achieved, when leaders earn legitimacy through the ballot, decrying the open display of contempt for free, fair and transparent election by the All Progressives Congress (APC) government.

He said; “Democracy will return to Nigeria again after President Buhari’s tenure.

“Today, there is no democracy to celebrate and I have not stopped wondering how we got here in Nigeria.

“I am sure Nigerians will still recall that I warned them in 2015.

“The people mourn when the wicked are in authority while they rejoice when the righteous are in leadership. Today, Nigerians are mourning.

“Nevertheless, we must all keep hope alive because after darkness, there will definitely be light.”

    The first time Nigeria witnessed a full blown “military coup” in a state under the guise of election was in Ekiti State under President Goodluck Jonathan. That election brought back Peter Ayodele Fayose as Governor. What the PDP did with the military in that election is still a shock to our collective psych.
    Fayose in his usual hypocritical stance thinks we have forgotten in a hurry how Ekiti was sieged by Federal Soldiers for days until he was declared winner despite having lost the election to Fayemi. Those whose blood were shed in Ekiti for Fayose to be Governor won’t be forgotten as well.
