Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose blasts Obasanjo for his criticism of President Jonathan

Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, on Friday attacked former President Olusegun Obasanjo for his criticism of President Goodluck Jonathan.

Fayose spoke at the Yoruba Progress Summit, held at the Oduduwa Hall of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State.

Fayose, who was impeached as the Ekiti State Governor in 2006 during the reign of Obasanjo as President, said the ex-president was corrupt and was not in a position to criticise Jonathan.

The governor alleged that Obasanjo shared a huge amount of money to people he did not name during his attempt to go for a third term as the country’s number one citizen.

He said, “If you give your blood to Obasanjo, he will not support you. He doesn’t want anybody with independent mind.

“You (Jonathan) did not level Borno and Yobe the way he levelled Odi; for that, he will not like you. We know how he was when he came out of prison and how rich he was when he was leaving office.”
Fayose said his wife, who predicted his return to power, had told him that Jonathan would win the 2015 poll.
