The Governor of Ekiti State has said that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had already conceded to being defeated in the upcoming general elections.

Fayose also mentioned that the health of the APC candidate, Muhammadu Buhari had become cause for concern.

The governor stated this on Thursday, March 12, via a statement released by his media aide, Lere Olayinka.

The statement reads:

"We thank the APC for conceding defeat in the coming elections. At least, they, for the first time, appear realistic. General Buhari's insistence that he must be allowed to attend to his health is commendable.”

"It is glaring that he needs to rest and not waste energy on a failed project. The man has been abandoned by those who claim to be his backers and Buhari's people have told him the bitter truth. That they would prefer to wait for another four years than to get trapped by some selfish South-West leaders for eight years.”

"The preoccupation of the APC now is how to retain the APC- controlled states and prevent the PDP from capturing them.”

"The tactical withdrawal of people like Atiku, Kwakwanso and the battle for survival by Tinubu and Amaechi in Lagos and Rivers have woken up General Buhari to the politics of deceit that some are luring him to.”

"While PDP leaders are confidently traversing the country meeting Nigerians and getting their support, APC leaders are held up in their hideouts. Who among them is canvassing support for Buhari now? Tinubu, for instance, is only pre-occupied with his aim of maintaining his stranglehold on Lagos' resources by putting another stooge in the Government House, Ikeja, but this time around, he has failed woefully.”

"Kudos to patriotic Nigerians and Northern leaders who have seen the deceit called APC and refused the bait flaunt at them. APC is a dead horse, no amount of flogging can wake it up.

Fayose also said that Buhari is too busy contending with diapers to fight corruption like he has promised.
