Goodluck Jonathan, not Buhari, should mediate in Gambia

Governor Ayodele Fayose has described President Buhari’s involvement in the peace negotiation in Gambia as absurd.

Fayose said “Under Buhari, free fair and credible elections no longer exist.

“Therefore, the President lacks the moral rights to preach obedience to democratic principles to anyone.”

“Great Africans like Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, President John Mahama of Ghana and others are the ones to do this.

“These Africans lost elections and conceded defeat.

“They alone are in the best position to intervene in Gambia and not someone like Buhari, who lost election three times and never conceded defeat.

Fayose further stated that “With what happened in Rivers State last weekend, it is certain Nigerians votes will no count.

“The APC cabal in the Presidential villa has now assumed the roles of INEC.

“They allocate votes to their party and use security agents to force their will on the people.”

“Did Buhari face Jammeh and advised him to accept defeat the way he conceded defeat in 2003, 2007 and 2011?

“Buhari instigated violence as several people, including Youth Corp members were [neutralized]!

“Or did Buhari lecture Jammeh to take to democracy at gunpoint, which is now the norm in Nigeria?

“How can Buhari, who destroyed the legacy of free, fair and credible elections, be the one to prevail on someone else to adhere to democratic principles?”

Fayose then called on the President to remove the timber in his eyes before attempting to remove the toothpicks in other peoples’ eyes.

The governor involvement of President Buhari in the meeting to persuade Jammeh to step down was the height of hypocrisy.

“Nigerians are worried about the possibility of Buhari behaving like Jammeh in 2019.

“The international community may need a high-powered delegation to pilot his rampaging bull out of Nigerians chinashop,” Fayose said.
