Obasnjo runs his mouth anyhow – Fayose

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has hit out at Chief Olusegun Obasanjo saying the former President craves for attention.

Fayose made this observation in a chat with journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital when he was asked about his opinion on the recent suggestion by Obasanjo that the Igbo should take a shot at the presidency in 2019.

He said, “Do you ever take Obasanjo seriously? I don’t take him seriously. By his nature, Obasanjo wants relevance at all times. We have worked with him and used to be his foot soldiers. I know him more than anybody in this country. He just talks, so that he would remain relevant.

“Do you see any other former President in the country running his mouth like his? If it is not the fact that he has a voice as a former head of state, where is Obasanjo’s constituency? Who are his followers? How many votes can Obasanjo win in his ward? We must say the truth and we must face the truth. Let’s give it to him, as a leader in this country, whoever has governed this country before would remain our leader, but he must equally recall and admit that he is becoming more fairly negative than working towards national building.”
