Ayodele Fayose, the current governor of Ekiti State, has advised former Governor Kayode Fayemi, to stop boasting about the use of federal might to win the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State.
He made this known in Ado-Ekiti on Tuesday, as the Muslim Community in the state held a gathering to appreciate the appointment of one of them, named Kazeem Deji Ogunsakin, as the deputy governorship candidate of the People Democratic Party [PDP].
The Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in a statement quoted Fayose as saying that the choice of Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka as the PDP governorship candidate and Ogunsakin as his deputy,was divine.
“I know that this is God’s project and cannot fail. Those bragging about one might or the other are only deceiving themselves. We are firmly on a solid ground with God.
“I have done my part and I want the Muslim Community to go all about and spread the news. He is a vibrant young man and with the support of the people we are coasting home to victory come July 14,” he also said.
While, in his remarks, the Chief Imam of Ekiti State, who is also the Chairman, League of Imams in Yorubaland including Delta and Edo States, Sheikh Jamiu Kewulere Bello, said: “The governor made four promises to the Muslim Community and he has fulfilled three.
“The third one is what we are witnessing and appreciating today and we know he will fulfil the last one. We said we will support whoever picks a Muslim as his deputy and we thank God that Governor Fayose has done us proud. We are happy that the governor values us.
“You will succeed in this enterprise. We still have much to do and we will not disappoint in that respect, ” Bello disclosed.
