The National Chairman of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Olu Falae, has joined camp with those against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari. During a visit by Titi Abubakar, the wife of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, he (Falae) called on Nigerians to join hands and ensure that Buhari is voted out during the forthcoming presidential election.
He noted that Buhari was not aware of what was going on around him, hence the need to vote him out, adding that some people were hiding behind him to do evil. Falae also wished the PDP presidential candidate well in the forthcoming election.
Falae was born to the family of Joshua and Abigail Falae. Joshua Falae was originally from Akure but due to opportunities in cocoa farming, Falae’s family and a few other Akure natives moved to a nearby location called Ago-Abo where they settled as pioneers. Falae’s father was later made the chief of Ago-Abo village. Falae attended an Anglican primary school in Akure where he met his future wife, Rachael Fashoranti. After primary education, he sat for the entrance exam into Igbobi College and was accepted in 1953. upon graduation from Igbobi, he went on to complete his Higher School Certificate at Government College, Ibadan in 1958 and later became a tutor at Oyemekun Grammar School, Akure. He attended the University of Ibadan for his undergraduate studies earning a degree in economics, thereafter, he obtained a graduate degree at Yale University in the United States. At the University of Ibadan, he represented his hall of residence in the Students Representative Council and was editorial board member of the student run campus magazine.
He said: “All hands must be on deck by to ensure that President Muhammadu Buhari does not come back for the second term.“We have to find ways to do it, this government must not come back, for the sake of all of us, even for the sake of the man (Buhari) himself.
“He does not have the clue of what is going on again, I don’t think he is well, he should just go home and rest. Some characters are hiding behind him to do evil.“I wish him (Abubakar) well, we are on the same page, we are aiming the same result, no one wants this government to come back because the government has failed.
“Things that have not been happening before are now happening in the country, herdsmen now kidnap people as eagle picks chicken in Yoruba land.“You have to talk to your (PDP) leaders, in the field; we must cooperate so that we get the right result. I want to assure you that we are on the same page we want the same result for this country. The reign of terror in this land must end.”
