Fayose made the disclosure after he was asked why he is critical of the Buhari administration.
‘I told Nigerians not to vote for Buhari,’ Governor says
Fayose had earlier said that he would continue to criticize Buhari in order to keep him from succumbing to dictatorial tendencies.
He made the comment during a recent interview with Vanguard.
“You have been very critical of this administration and the President. Do you have any personal…? Everything I have said is backed with facts and figures. It is not about being critical of this administration. I didn’t start today. I started before the 2015 elections. I told Nigerians not to vote for him (Buhari),” Fayose said.
“I was a young man of 24, 25 years when Buhari was the Head of State of this country. The Yoruba man will say, ‘If you have taken a medicine that works for you, please give me’. We took a medicine which kills. Anybody that is 40 years old today that voted for Buhari doesn’t know Buhari because, from 1984 to date, it will be 32 years.
“So, a guy of eight years won’t say he knows Buhari clearly. So, add that eight years to 32 years, that is 40 years, they voted for a man they never knew. So, if you remove people from the age bracket of 18 – 40 and remove the votes from Buhari’s votes, you will know that he couldn’t have won the election. I am not critical of anybody.
“When APC is talking about me, they say whatever they want to say but I defeated them in all elections even when they call it militarization, even when they say Fayose is controversial; in every battle I will win them. Even when you have over taken, like after my impeachment, by His grace, they were over taken again and lambasted by the Supreme Court.
“There is a difference between vendetta and the reality on the ground. If I am incompetent, Ekiti people will not vote for me eight years after,” he added.
