Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, has identified the youthful age of his Sokoto State counterpart, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, as a great asset to Nigeria in THR 2019 presidential race
Fayose made the remark in Ado-Ekiti on Friday when Governor Tambuwal visited to solicit support from the state’s delegates.
He stated that only a leader with age on his side could have the stamina, mental capacity needed to confront and provide workable solutions to the challenges facing the nation.
He added that Tambuwal’s experience in the legislature, where he served as Speaker of the House of Representatives for four years and as executive governor for the fourth year, eminently qualifies him for the office of president.
Fayose said: “A man can never give what he doesn’t have.
“Buhari’s old age and tyrannical character cannot allow him to perform. An old man cannot perform.
“Anybody packaging Buhari to come back is packaging him for their personal interests.”
“Do not be afraid but work hard so that we can remove this monster. The fall of a tyrant always comes when he least expects it.”
Addressing all the presidential aspirants in the PDP, Fayose added: “You must take the outcome of the party’s primaries in good faith.
“If God favours you, try to be magnanimous and if you lose, join hands with the winner to fight this common enemy.”
