Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has hailed the victory of the Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump in the U.S Presidential election, describing it as “the beginning of a real change in Nigeria because those who imposed the present All Progressives Congress (APC) government on Nigerians just lost out.”
“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,” the governor said.
In a statement by Lere Olayinka, the Special Assistant to Governor Fayose on Public Communications and New Media, Fayose said that he believed that Trump will be able to tell President Buhari to respect rule of law and sit at home to solve the country’s economic problems instead of junketing around the world.
“Trump’s 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!” Fayose said.
Describing the conduct of the elections as a lesson for Nigerians, Governor Fayose said: “The U.S 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 Professor Mahmood Yakubu and his INEC should learn from this for posterity. They should stop aiding unpopular politicians to rob the people of quality leadership.”
Speaking further, Governor Fayose said the election of Trump signals the hope of a possible defeat of the APC government foisted on Nigeria by U.S influence.
“I prayed to God that if Trump will be the one to save us from this present state of hopelessness, God should give him victory. I prayed that God should let Trump wins so that another change can begin in Nigeria. I am happy that God answered my prayers and gave Trump a resounding victory.
I am also happy that God has humbled those who conspired to impose the present APC government that has brought hunger, suffering, abuse of human rights and destruction of the Electoral system on Nigeria and its people,” Fayose added.
