Election Tribunal: You’re Daydreaming, Putting Yourself Through Nightmare – Fayose Tells Peter Obi, Atiku
Former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose says anyone thinking they can unseat president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress is wasting time and putting themselves through a nightmare.
Enjoy9ja had reported the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi had, on Tuesday, officially filed his petition at the presidential elections tribunal in Abuja.
“It is official the Labor Party Presidential candidate Peter OBI has filed his petition to the presidential elections tribunal in Abuja. The process of reclaiming the people’s mandate has started,” he wrote on Twitter via his spokesman, Yunusa Tanko.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar also petitioned to nullify Tinubu’s victory.
However, reacting to those planning to upturn the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) verdict, Fayose while speaking in an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Tuesday, insisted that it would be a futile attempt.
He maintained such individuals are day dreaming as the elections had come and gone.
In his words,
‘’I am not desperate for an appointment. I have been governor twice. I am contented but for anybody to say he will unseat Ahmed Bola Tinubu, you are daydreaming. It is a nightmare you are putting yourself through. That election has come and gone.’’
Fayose says though PDP was not prepared for the general elections, he will never be a member of the ruling APC.
The former governor, who opposed his Party’s candidate Atiku Abubakar from northern Nigeria, had, just like the G-5 governors, maintained that power should move to the South.
According to Fayose, his support for the president-elect was based on the principles of equity which meant Southern Nigeria should take over power at the federal level.
