He described Nigeria as a free society that would not be taken as an Islamic nation irrespective of the motive or plans of the President.

I want to reveal one secret here; they have started subtle moves to make Nigeria an Islamic nation. But God will not allow it. This was done in 1984, but it failed. I cannot run away; I am Ayo Fayose. If you hit me, you hit trouble, if I hit you, you will be in trouble.

“Nigeria is a free nation and this nation will not be taken for an Islamic nation. Today, I decree the return of a PDP government in 2019. They (APC) are here by chance, they will go by chance,” Fayose said.

He also boasted about the plans of the Peoples Democratic Party to outshine the ruling party, All Progressive Congress in 2019.
