An Erstwhile governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has said he was elated with the military intervention that took place in Gabon.
He maintained that the insurrection would pave the way for a transition to democratic rule in Gabon.
Recall that the military on Wednesday took over power from President Ali Bongo, who was just re-elected for a third term in a disputed election.
Speaking on the development, Fayose, however, voiced his hatred for military takeover.
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.
“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.”
