Ayo Fayose Explains Why He’s Happy About the Gabon Coup
Ayodele Fayose, a former governor of Ekiti State, has expressed his happiness at the military coup that took place in Gabon.
He believed that it would pave the way for democracy in that nation.
A few days after being declared the winner of a contested election to serve a third term, President Ali Bongo was forcibly ousted on Wednesday.
Fayose, commenting on the development, emphasized his opposition to military interference in politics.
I am quite delighted with what transpired in Gabon, Fayose stated on Friday’s Hard Copy episode of Channels Television. I dislike military interventions in politics, but I want to point out that Nigeria is different because our democracy is pretty stable here.
“We have our flaws, but you can see the uninterrupted democratic process. After four years there will be an election. Nigeria has gone from one party to another party.
“One person to another person within a space of time. But in a country where one man is spending 30, 40 years. You have to boot him out of the place in whatever way.
“That’s different from the Nigerian setting.”
