But speaking on Channels TV programme: Sunday Politics, Fayose said: “In my opinion, the only thing Jonathan did that I keep saying, that I hardly want to say, is that if I were him I wouldn’t have contested.”
The Governor said that those who encouraged Jonathan to contest the election in 2015 did not even allow him to get back home, after the defeat, before saying they had retired from politics.
“The people that went to tell Jonathan, that convinced him to run, making him to understand that at 58, when he would be done, how would a young man be 58 and say I’m done with presidency, they were the first set of people who said we have retired from politics.
“They didn’t even allow him to get home, before they said that. All leaders are coming out today to say they want to rebuild. Rebuild what? What you destroyed? You don’t have capacity to do it.” [myad]
