"Buhari’s coup of 1983 destroyed the Southwest and the old Bendel State, now Edo and Delta, as it put an end to the developmental programmes of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) government in the Southwest States of Lagos, Oyo, Ogun and Ondo, as well as Bendel State," Fayose said.
