Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has said the coming presidential election would be a tough one, but that the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Bola Tinubu, would win – “by the skin of our teeth”.

According to Fayemi, who would be handing over the reins of Ekiti governance to Mr Biodun Oyebanji today, the electorate would be asked to assess the candidates based of their records.

He said these in an interview with Vanguard when asked about the party’s chances in the election given the perceived failure of the Buhari administration in delivery on promises. 

Fayemi said: “On the impact (of Buhari’s performance) our party, we will have to explain ourselves to the Nigerian people.

“We don’t have a choice, it’s a democracy.

“We’ll ask the Nigerian people to look at the leading candidates and assess them based on their track record, character, competence, capacity, commitment and courage to do the right thing on the Nigeria project and then make their choice.

“But I am reasonably confident that when you look at all the parameters and when you do your calculations, we’re still going to carry the day, maybe by the skin of our teeth, but we’ll carry the day.”
