Ayodele Fayose, former Ekiti State Governor, with a great soothsayer ideology, has predicted that the All Progressives Congress (APC) will collapse before the 2023 general election.
He described the internal squabble within the APC as a show of God’s anger against the party for its ‘infamous role’ in bringing untold hardship to Nigerians, promoting rigging, and showing negligence to the hydra-headed insecurity ravaging the country.
In a statement yesterday in Ado-Ekiti by his media aide, the ex-governor, who was reacting to the leadership crisis in the APC, said no one can validly lay claim to the chairmanship of the APC, in whatever capacity.
He said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must be mindful of being seen as helping the APC to uphold its illegalities.
Fayose accused the ruling party of displaying power arrogance and treating Nigerians with contempt, saying: “This is just the beginning; their matters will be made worse with time.”
He lamented that since 2015 when the APC took over power, the country had been riddled with socio-economic, political, and security challenges.
Fayose said that the APC-led Federal Government had brought untold hardship to Nigerians, noting that more confusion awaits the party till it goes into ‘irredeemable political extinction’.
The former governor bemoaned the killings by bandits in the North, especially Katsina, Kaduna, Zamfara and Sokoto states, saying: “God will never be happy with a party that its government is doing nothing to stop the bloodshed, raping of women; including children and destruction of people’s sources of livelihood.”
He added: “It is on record that more than 300 Nigerians have been brutally murdered by bandits in the last three weeks and the APC government has done nothing. Rather, Nigerians who raised concerns are being insulted by the APC government, while those who protested are being arrested and detained.
“God cannot be happy with a party like the APC whose government has not only impoverished Nigerians, but its inept Presidency has also plunged the country into a debt that future generations will have to pay.
“Most importantly, will God be happy with APC after seeing how elections were rigged since 2015, the latest being in Kogi and Bayelsa states?
“Definitely, their matters will be made worse with time because for Nigeria and its people to return to the path of peace and progress, the APC house of lies that is being nurtured with the blood of Nigerians must collapse.”
