Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has dismissed President Buhari’s chance of winning in 2019 as he believes Nigerians know that he is too old to rule.

Fayose bared his mind while reacting to the President’s second term bid official declaration.

“That ambition is dead on arrival. We don’t need grandpa as President anymore, Nigeria does not deserve a Buhari as President in 2019. Buhari is too old and tired.”

“When people don’t know when to take their leave and say bye, Nigerians will show them the exit door,” the governor was quoted as saying in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi.

Fayose further pointed to the failings of the President on the economic front and security as enough justifications for him not to seek re-election.

“He has failed in the economic front and he has not done well in terms of security. People are being killed in large number daily and Nigerians have no confidence in him.”

”His declaration today is a slap on Nigerians in the face of what Nigerians are passing through. His government is not only clueless, but in a shambles. He should go home and rest, ” he said.
