Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose on Friday said that there was nothing to celebrate in terms of democratic governance in Nigeria.

In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, on the occasion of Democracy Day celebration on June 12, 2020, Fayose said that democracy would only return to the country when President Muhammadu Buhari leaves office.

“Democracy will return to Nigeria after President Buhari’s tenure. Today, there is no democracy to celebrate and I have not stopped wondering how we got here in Nigeria. I am sure Nigerians will still recall that I warned them in 2015.

“The people mourn when the wicked are in authority while they rejoice when the righteous are in leadership. Today, Nigerians are mourning. Nevertheless, we must all keep hope alive because after darkness, there will definitely be light.”

The former governor said it was painful that the “legacy of free, fair and transparent elections bequeathed to Nigeria by the PDP government has been destroyed, with elections in the country now being held at gun point.”

He said peace and prosperity could only be achieved when leaders earn legitimacy through the ballot, decrying the open display of contempt for free, fair and transparent election by the All Progressives Congress (APC) government.
