“2Baba, I stand with you and Nigerians on this protest…. I will be part of it” – Gov. Ayo Fayose



Ekiti State governor and chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)‘s Governors’ Forum, Ayo Fayose has declared his support for the planned February 6th protest led by superstar musician 2Baba.

Fayose made this known in a series of tweets on Tuesday night.

See below:

2Baba announced the protest last week, saying that it is aimed at demanding answers from the government over several issues, including the economic recession.

After the announcement, rumours followed that it is politically motivated. One university professor openly called the musician an illiterate.

2Baba has refused to back down and has said that the protest will take place on February 6th from the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos to the National Theatre in the Iganmu area of Lagos state.

      Very Correct. All present politicians should not join the protest. They are the problem.

      You know what if only Buhari had starved Nigerians by his actions and inactions it would have been better to be alive while we watch and pray but he went belong that it got worse, worse than hell! Buhari kept silennnnt whilst fulani herdsmen butcher Nigerians, Only FAYOSE STOOD UP AGAINST HIM and curtailed it at least in Ekiti and other governors pooping in their pants picks courage, Fayose thank you for joining. Haters should visit the transformers, luckily no light.

      While I applaud Nigerians protesting i.e no longer willing to do “siddon dey look”, waiting on God to come down and do “something. I however, cannot understand how we don’t see that Fayose only has his own interest at heart. He does NOT give a damn about the average citizen. Case in point, look at Ekiti State.

      All he is trying to do his position himself as a “good” presidential candidate come next election. He is not standing up to Buhari because he disagrees with him, he is standing up because he knows this is the best way to play on people’s emotions I.e land him what he really wants, the role of president elect. Yet, I know many people will fall for it. Fayose cannot be our next president if we want to move ahead as a nation, we need to stop recycling politicians!!!

    might not agree on sseveral policies fayose initiates but i must praise him for his guts to stand and oppose the buhari/apc adminstration and fulani misadventours.

      You are why Nigerian politics and the country is how it is. Why are you commending someone who is part of the problem? Ekiti State is in Nigeria and not in a better situation either.

      @OB, help me ask Lolarae o!! I’m from Ekiti and trust me, our Uncle Ayo is a paper tiger. He owes civil servants/pensioners 5 months salary, my mum has not received a kobo of her pension. Let him be deceiving himself that being in the opposition & vocal excludes him from the fold. He is an integral part of the problem. Physician, heal thyself!!

    Fayose, you are part of why this protest is taking place. APC, PDP, you guys have failed Nigeria.

    Since Buhari came into power, government parastatals have been flooded with only people from the North. Key positions are held by mainly people from the North. Why? Goodluck Jonathan was not a good president but at least he considered everyone. Hell even his vice president was from the North. When are we going to choose COMPETENT people and not because someone is from the North, South-west, South-East but because they are competent??? Because many of these government workers from the North are not literates and cannot do the job. And will not do the job. Always on the radio!! This is in Abuja. Other states have their own issues. But Abuja should set the standard!!

    That is why this recession is getting worse. Not enough competent people to put heads together to resolve it. Even the head of CBN is incompetent. Minister of Finance, incompetent. Kai kai kai.

    They are slowly mortgaging our childrens childrens childrens future and selling our land before our eyes to foreigners. Since when did China, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc take interest in Nigeria? Now they own lands, oil blocks, etc. Things Nigerians can never own in their countries!

    This government is biased. And fails on every promise it made before election. Corruption, he has failed to fight. He has re-employed the same people who are the few most corrupt in this country. Because they supported him? I am just confused. Which way forward?

    Okorocha has hinted at a possible second term for Buhari. Hmmmmmmm. Another corrupt individual still in government. Nnamani who decamped to APC, another corrupt individual. Is political office, a CEO position?

    I saw a single mother of two who lost her husband five years ago weep before me, small girl like me, because she could not afford kerosene to cook the little food she had. Imagine!! In this great Nigeria.

      how should people like you be good workers? while obviously showing partism? as a man who want to react to something needed to be amended, you won’t take side, abusing bihari and excelling the former President. recall” to every action,there is equal and opposite reaction” Isaac newton.

    I guess Gov Favose missed the part where 2Baba said it is not a political march or rally. This is not a PDP vs APC thing.

    February 1, 2017 at 8:58 am

    The leeches are already looking to join the movement of the people.

    “…let it be February 5, 6 or any day, I will be part of any protest…”

    Apparently the governor has so few meetings and issues of state to take care of that he’ll be available on short notice for any protests.

  8. ...just saying

    February 1, 2017 at 8:59 am

    This is the problem with governance in Nigeria. No one ever takes the blame.

    Ayodele Fayose, you are a Governor, your party has several members of parliament. YOU ARE THE PROBLEM we will be marching against.

    You are not welcome because you will make it political.

    We the orduinary Nigerians are the ones who will march against you and your type.

      This is exactly how it’s supposed to be. Let us the masses disassociate ourselves from Politicization of the protest. Let vision be very clear and then it will go a long way in achieving the aims. Enough is Enough. Nigerians, let us wake up

    @ Oyin is Governor Fayose not a Nigerian? the match is for every Nigerians and it is aimed at bringing Governance to the governed to enjoy proceeds of Democracy and not Democorruptcrazy where Incompetent Fullani mallam and the likes occupied important and sensitive positions with selfish interest.

      February 1, 2017 at 1:35 pm

      @ prince,Fayose need not to be included though he is a Nigerian as u have said,but one of the bigger boys of Nigerian politically,he is among the Nigerians that suffer nothing as far economic frustration is concern,beside he is among the tails of the head,and for every stinky head there exist a stinker tail,so fayose should go and sit down for now …he will soon be called ,lolz

However am making contacts to have CNN reporters to cover the Protest. I want to be among the Positive Change and not Unspecified type of Change campaigned where no one not even the Presidency want to take responsibility of the downtrodden economy that has given birth to unbearable Recession. All Promises Failed with Prejudice. 2baba Am throwing my Unrestricted Full Support .

    February 1, 2017 at 3:28 pm

    Yes! Fayoshe should step aside because he’s part of the economic recession bcos if he did not, he will implicate himself. If he will support it should be underground. 2baba carry go!

    It is a slap on the face of notable people of Ekiti that a man of the kind like Fayose is leading them. I think Ekiti urgently need a leader that will lead the good people of Ekiti and let Fayose continue in the business of leading the protesters

    I so much appreciate what fayose is doing which governor will stood and join a protest, everybody is saying he has not pay salary and pension his he the only governor who has not pay salary and pension we are in this together and we don’t expect him to go and bring money from his father’s house to settle dose bills. he his facing the heat of the country that is y he think coming out will help let fight it out once and stop being politics

    February 1, 2017 at 10:01 pm

    I think we need to b cautious here, critism has always been a tool in d hands of opposition n d people all over d world but while others r making huge positivity with theirs, we r making things worst for ourselves here………… protestation is good but not even 5% of d current nigerian leaders r worthy of leading d ppl for any protest……… mind u my bro, 2baba, d governors r part of dis menace, in fact recent events have exposed dormant n docile governors in this country, they are lazy bones who only wait for abuja to drop bfor they work, they r idle n incompetent, if not, states like Ondo n Ekiti shudnt b crying of hunger when there z abundance.of resources but bcos our governors r visionless, they av turned all to consumerz n nt producers
    this issue is an accumulated one, unfortunately we were sleeping when we were supposed to shout on our gov to save for d future, n now dat d future z starring us in d face with an almost empty treasury we suddenly woke up frm our slumber n we begin to trade blames……..
    to me we r all guilty of these mess bcos a large chunk of d populace has no moral right to protest.
    God bless Nigeria

    I don’t know why some of you are more concern about Fayose is that Fayose this. I smell rotten rat…Those speech are more politically motivated than whatever…it is a calculated plan to divert the collective resolve of well meaning Nigerian’s who wish to express dissatisfaction over the state of the impoverish people of our dear Nation… that has hitherto suffered from deliberate organized poverty. Fayose or not is not the point whoever stand against the collective will of the masses should be considered a comrade and who does not a for.It took the act of the devil to bring salvation. Thumbs up to 2baba…

    February 1, 2017 at 11:14 pm

    I hope this penumbra will come to a logical conclusion…. Fayose if you join, who go call the boys to order for your state? CCA 212 you are the peace keeping officer there don’t forget, I want to advise as an unpaid bystander don’t join read your book get sense and do only what your duty entails as a governor.. the only reason we are where we are is because our politicians are dummy only wise in money and unwise in many…. ? ?
    I drop my pen I hope it doesn’t end up a mouth watery adventure just thinking 2baba don’t mind me am an honest thinker ….go ahead
