‘Obasanjo is an expired man,’ Governor says

Fayose also accused Obasanjo of frequenting Abuja in order to beg President Muhammadu Buhari for political favours.

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has described former President, Olusegun Obasanjo as an “expired” man.

Fayose also accused Obasanjo of frequenting Abuja in order to beg President Muhammadu Buhari for political favours.

The governor made the comments on Sunday, December 13, during a press conference in Lagos, according to Punch.

“I was governor without a godfather. I was governor for three years but Obasanjo took me out. Obasanjo is now an expired man today and I am still more than relevant. He is expired. He goes to Aso Rock every week to go and beg,” Fayose said.

“How many times did Buhari visit him (Obasanjo) when he was President? Buhari did not go to Aso Rock throughout. He didn’t even go for Council of State meetings. What is Obasanjo looking for in the Villa? A man of 80! What is he looking for?

“He keeps writing to Presidents to nominate ministers for them. That was Goodluck Jonathan’s offence. Enough is enough,” he added.

Fayose also accused Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to remove him from office.
