- Ayo Fayose said the north will disappoint President Muhammadu Buhari during the 2019 poll
- The former governor of Ekiti also assured PDP members that the party will win in the coming elections
- PDP members were urged to remain united and focused ahead of the elections
Ekiti state former governor, Ayo Fayose, has said President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) will lose the 2019 Presidential elections because the northern region will not vote for him.
Fayose said President Buhari is relying on the support from Northern Nigeria but the north will disappoint him.
The former governor said this at an event where he inaugurated Atiku\Obi Campaign Council for the southwest.
Fayose said: “In 2014/15, I have stood as an outstanding Nigerian who said Buhari is not fit to be president and I still stand by that; all the governors of the North East are coming to Abuja to cry, I am not one of the crying governors.
“The killings in Nigeria in the last three and half years are more than the killings that Nigerian has witnessed from independence to the time of Buhari.
“I want to assure you that the same northern Nigeria will disappoint President Buhari in the coming elections. Let us stand firm for this party, let us remain united and focused and I assure you we will win in February 16."
