It would be recalled that in the build up to the epic election, Fayose was a major supporter of the ex-president who is alleged to have deployed federal might and resources in installing him as the Ekiti State Governor in 2014.

But speaking on Channels TV programme: Sunday Politics, Fayose said: “In my opinion, the only thing Jonathan did that I keep saying, that I hardly want to say, is that if I were him I wouldn’t have contested.”

This was after he pointed out that he is “an ardent supporter of former President Goodluck Jonathan, I love him, I would continue to defend his cause, I would continue to stand up for him, because he did well.”

The Governor disclosed that those who encouraged Jonathan to run did not even allow him to get back home, after the defeat, before saying they had retired from politics.

“The people that went to tell Jonathan, that convinced him to run, making him to understand that at 58, when he would be done, how would a young man be 58 and say I’m done with presidency, they were the first set of people who said we have retired from politics.

“They didn’t even allow him to get home, before they said that. All leaders are coming out today to say they want to rebuild. Rebuild what? What you destroyed? You don’t have capacity to do it,” he said.

Fayose, who revealed that Bode George is interested in becoming the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, insisted that the elders of the party must take the back seat for causing PDP’s defeat in the last presidential election.

  2. dat Fayose supported Jonathan in d last election did not mean he was happy with d nomination. I said it too b4 d election dat GEJ was a wrong candidate to PDP not based on his performance but ethno-religious basis. and Fayose was just re-elected dat time. Fayose could as well have impact then but little. I am from North Central. Northerners don’t play with power coupled with d death of Yar Adua and Boko Haram issues. Fayose is a political mathematician, he understands politics better than socalled old wagon in pdp bcos majority of them are there just to make their money. imagine, Tony Annenie was d former Pdp bot chairman and d same time NPA board chairman with no significant input during Jonathan regime. He was among those who caused feud btw Jonathan and obj. Bode George could not deliver south west except ekiti. however, let’s all pray for pmb. leadership is not an easy task.

  3. God bless you, my ambition is not worth the blood of any nigerian, GEJ is a silent killer, deceiving the world with humility. If GEJ truly performed as fayose claims, why did he now say he shouldn’t have contested?

  4. @Emeka, you are Emeka but from north central. So which of your parents is from igboland? May be you are local half-cast. Chai!!!!! Daris God oooo. Continue… www. That’s all

  5. Don’t mind fayose.He is a bloody lier.I could remember vividly when OBJ advised GEJ not to run for second time in the office.It was the same fayose that said OBJ was a cancer in PDP.That “what does He means.He advised GEJ not to run,the same man(OBJ) that wants to goes for the third term in office”.fayose is not a man of integrity.
    The truth of the matter is that,during the last visitation of sultan of Sokoto to Ekiti state,Fayose has been promised vice presidential ticket of PDP coming 2019.That is why He’s criticising Buhari all the time,not that He has the love of this country in His heart.
