Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has boasted that he would become Nigeria’s president in 2019 through divine intervention.
The governor also said he supported the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s decision to zone power to the North in the next general elections.
Fayose, who spoke while delivering the 13th convocation lecture of the Benson Idahosa University, Benin City, said something would give way for him to become the country’s president in 2019.
The Ekiti Governor, who spoke on the theme: “Education and Actualisation,” said he would continue to play politics until he becomes the country’s president.
He vowed never to become a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC), saying Nigerians especially the youths, were brainwashed through the social media to vote “for a President they never knew.”
He accused the APC-led government of playing politics with the anti-corruption campaign, insisting that the “actual thieves are in Buhari’s government.”
Fayose said no meaningful achievements would be recorded in the educational sector if teachers were not placed on the driver’s seat.
“Teachers remain the only solution to the revival of education. Education is currently at its lowest ebb in Nigeria.
“It is carnality that makes you look at me and think I cannot be president. I am the man to watch in this generation. I surely will become the president. Something has to give way for you to manifest,” he added.
