Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose was joined by a large crowd of residents in the state on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, in celebrating three years of his victory in the June 21, 2014 governorship election.
Fayose defeated Dr. Kayode Fayemi in all the 16 local government areas in the election.


At the rally, the governor took a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, accusing him of nepotism.
Specifically, he stated that the 2017 budget did not capture the interests of all Nigerians, especially Ekiti State which he said the Federal Government did not appropriate anything for.
Fayose said the people of the state would revolt against the All Progressives Congress in the 2018 governorship poll due to its insensitivity to the plight of the people of the state.
“A government of nepotism can’t stand the test of time. The economy of this country has shrunk under this government. I say they will go, they must go. Nigerians are hungry and angry.


“I’m not one Nigerian that will chicken out to join a political party. We will remain here telling them the truth, telling them the economy is not working, we stand for the truth.”
The crowd comprising members of the PDP, artisans, transport unions and youths among others marched through Fajuyi Park to Ojumose and  stopped at the popular Ijigbo roundabout in a show of loyalty to Fayose.
Fayose said, “The policy of Buhari’s government is anti-Ekiti. If you check properly, nothing was budgeted as a project for Ekiti in the 2017 budget.  That is why Nigeria must be restructured, so that a state can control its own resources.
“The APC-led Federal Government is fighting everybody, the judiciary and legislators as well as the press are not spared. They are running a lawless government and that was why they refused to release Col. Bello Dasuki (retd.) and El-ZakkyZakky despite court orders. This is not the kind of Nigeria of our dream.


“The APC will be upset in 2018, we will crush them and that is why you have to be strong and firm. I am a leader in Nigeria and nobody can gag or cow me, because this country belongs to all of us. Today, Nigerians are hungry and angry. There is so much nepotism and poverty in the land, so this government must go.”
