Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has described former President Olusegun Obasanjo as the number one enemy of Nigeria.
Mr. Fayose said about the former president ; “he is a confusionist who has lost his status as a statesman and Nigerians should simply ignore him.”
The governor, who expressed confidence that President Goodluck Jonathan will be reelected to complete his eight year term, added that; “Obasanjo is only fighting President Jonathan because he prevented him (Obasanjo) from ruling Nigeria from his Ota Farm.”
In a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said “Obasanjo is a cancer in the Peoples Democratic Party and Nigeria that may never get cured in a lifetime”.
”Obasanjo has always benefitted from the misfortune of others and he is living with the impression that he is the wisest person in the whole world.
Recall that Gov. Fayose was once a close political ally of the former President until Chief Obasanjo masterminded his impeachment as Governor of Ekiti State during his first coming. Since then, Ayo Fayose had become a sworn enemy of the former President.
