Fayose Explains Why He Is Happy About Gabon Coup


A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has said he is happy about the military coup that happened in Gabon.

According to him, it would clear the path for democracy in that country.

On Wednesday, President Ali Bongo was forefully removed, only days after he was re-elected for a third term in a disputed election.

Commenting on the development, Fayose, however, expressed his dislike for military incursion into politics.

Featuring on Channels Television’s Hard Copy on Friday, Fayose said: “I am very happy with what happened in Gabon. I don’t like military incursions in politics but I want to say to you that Nigeria is different; we have a reasonably stabilised democracy.

“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.
