US Election: Trump defeated those who imposed Buhari on Nigerians – Fayose
Published:9 Nov, 2016
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, on Wednesday said the emergence of Donald Trump as the President-elect of the United State of America, USA, is “the beginning of a real change in Nigeria.
Reacting to Trump’s victory, the fiery governor said “it is an indication that those who imposed the present All Progressives Congress, APC, government on Nigerians had just lost out.”
According to Fayose, the US President elect will be able to call Buhari to order over his alleged human right abuses.
Fayose said, “Now that Trump has won, it portends hope for Nigerians that 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.
“Trump 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.
“Most importantly, President Barack Obama got what he did to Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. God bless President-Elect Donald John Trump!”
“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. Mahmood Yakubu and his INEC should learn from this for posterity. They should stop aiding unpopular politicians to rob the people of quality leadership,” Fayose added.
Recall that Trump, a Republican candidate, won the fiercely contested US Presidential election after polling 289 colleges, against Hillary Clinton’s 218.
