Buhari ‘Giving A Daughter To Two Men In Ogun’, Fayose Claims
President Muhammadu Buhari does not have a daughter in Ogun State, but the political situation in the state has put on his shoulders a responsibility that the former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, likened to giving a daughter's hand in marriage to two men.
The APC in Ogun has been divided since the incumbent governor, Ibikunle Amosun, failed to install his choice individual as the governorship candidate as his successor.
The governor is angry, and had held talks with President Buhari on the matter.
Those talks did not result in upturning of the decision that had already been reached on the candidate that will represent his party in the state's governorship election in February.
On Sunday, the President issued a statement in which he said his support would go to the candidates of the APC.
The statement had said that "as a party leader and a candidate on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the coming elections, President Muhammadu Buhari will campaign for the party and all its candidates" of the party.
Meanwhile, at one of the meetings with the President, Governor Amosun assured Buhari of his support for his drive for a second term, but expressed his unwillingness to support the governorship candidate of the party, Dapo Abiodun.
The situation had triggered uncertainty in the state and the former Governor of Ekiti says this as a situation that is hinged on desperation.
"In Ogun State, the President is giving one daughter's hand in marriage to two men, that's what desperation for power can cause," Mr Fayose wrote.
For him, President Buhari wants to get the support of the incumbent and at the same time that of the APC's candidate even when the incumbent does not want the APC candidate to succeed him.
Fayose is a critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party. He believes Nigeria needs God's intervention.
In the comment posted on his Twitter he added: "By the grace of God, the people of Nigeria will prevail over tyranny".
