Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that he will be Nigeria’s president soon.

Fayose also said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff is a general without an army.

The governor made the comments on Tuesday, February 21, during an interview on African Independent Television.

“It is not by power; it is destiny. Even I did not believe it after becoming Ekiti (governor) after eight years of leaving office. I will be the vice president of Nigeria, even the President very soon,” he said.

“He is a general without an army. If democracy is about people and party politics is about people, tell Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to bring out the people behind him.

“You will see all the senators at our own meetings, who are those behind Sheriff? When holding a press conference, they will use camera to control them like this, just about three of them,” he added.

Fayose had earlier attacked Sheriff after the latter was named the legitimate PDP chairman by the Court of Appeal.

“On that comment by Sheriff that he will kick me and Gov Wike out of PDP, I don’t talk to monkeys. That Appeal Court judgment is just a phase, it will fizzle out. All things will work together for good for me, that’s what the Bible says,” the governor said.

Meanwhile, former president, Goodluck Jonathan has acknowledged Sheriff as the official party chairman.

The PDP has been involved in a leadership crisis since May 2016 when some members attempted to remove Sheriff as chairman.
