‘Obasanjo Runs His Mouth To Remain Relevant’ – Ayo Fayose Says

In a recent interview with The Sun, Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose,
says 79 year old former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, runs his mouth
just to remain relevant in the political scene.


“Do you ever take Obasanjo seriously? I don’t take him seriously. By his
nature, Obasanjo wants relevance at all times. We have worked with him
and used to be his foot soldiers. I know him more than anybody in this
He just talks, so that he would remain relevant. Do
you see any other former President in the country running his mouth like
his? If it is not the fact that he has a voice as a former head of
state, where is Obasanjo’s constituency? Who are his followers? How many
votes can Obasanjo win in his ward? We must say the truth and we must
face the truth. Let’s give it to him, as a leader in this country,
whoever has governed this country before would remain our leader, but he
must equally recall and admit that he is becoming more fairly negative
than working towards national building”he said.
