The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, that if he was to use human wisdom to choose who to support as the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] candidate in next year’s governorship election in the state, he would have rooted for one of his former Commissioner, Mr Kayode Osho. He, however, added that since he committed the matter to God’s intervention and guidance, the divine lot fell on deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, and he had no choice other than to support Olusola.
Fayose said this on Sunday in a Thanksgiving Service to mark his third year in office.
“I wanted Kayode Osho, but the Lord said it is Kolapo Olusola and I had no choice but to obey. I didn’t pray alone, but asked many other people to pray alone on matter and the result was the same. I am believing God that when we are marking the fourth anniversary of my administration, you, Kolapo Olusola, will be preparing for your inauguration as governor of this state.
“Some people are asking how you will do it because you have a different personality from me, but Elijah and Elisha have different personalities and God still used them mightily in their time. I pray that God would make those who are not supporting you now to come over to your side and work for you and support you,” he said.
On the possible challenges ahead as the election year approaches, Fayose urged his supporters not to be afraid, but to know that with God, all battles would be won.
