A former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has endorsed the military coup in Gabon.

According to Fayose, the military should be able to install a better democratic system in Gabon.

Recall that the military had forcefully deposed President Ali Bongo. This came after his third term re-election.

While declaring his disdain for military incursion in politics, Fayose said the Gabon case was different.

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.”
