Former governor Ayodele Fasoye of Ekiti state has said his initial claims that the government was planning a postponement of the election was true.
He said the Presidency was aware of the looming defeat and could not stand the shame, hence, the shift in the day of election.
Fasoye had, on his Twitter handle two days ago, written, “Leadership of APC now in crucial meeting. They are considering postponement of Saturday’s elections till 2nd week of March, using burning of INEC offices in Anambra, Abia & Plateau States as well as insecurity in some States as reasons.”
However, in a fresh tweet on Saturday morning, Fayose said Nigerians could now believe what he said.

He twitted, “Two days ago, I told Nigerians that the Presidency cabal were considering postponement of the elections because they knew that they can’t win.
“Now I’m vindicated. With this, they have only succeeded in making their situation worse. Nigerians will defeat this tyranny ultimately.”
