US ELECTION: Fayose mocks APC, says you just lost out

The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has reacted to the election Donald Trump as the President of United States of America, saying those who imposed the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, on Nigeria has just lost out.

According to Fayose, Trump’s victory in the US presidential election is the beginning of real change in Nigeria.

Fayose stated this in a statement he released on Wednesday, adding that “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.”

According to him, the US under Trump would be able to tell Buhari to respect the Rule of Law and to sit at home to solve the country’s economic problems instead of traveling around the world.

“Trump 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!”

On the conduct of the election, Fayose, who said it went seamlessly, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to always respect the wish of the people and also a leaf from the conduct of the US election.

“The US 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 Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and his INEC should learn from this for posterity. They should stop aiding unpopular politicians to rob the people of quality leadership.”
