Ekiti 2018: Fayose Urges Workers To Vote Deputy
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, on Tuesday, urged the state workers to vote for his deputy, Prof. Olusola Eleka, in the forthcoming gubernatorial election.
Fayose said this while addressing the civil servants at the May Day rally in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
The governor assured the workers that the victory of his deputy at the polls would give rise to the welfare of civil servants and ensure they are well taken care of.
“l wanted somebody else but the Lord said he should be this man. I have no choice but to support this gentle man. The APC said they will bring money, it is okay; they said they will rig, use technology, and federal might; it is okay. But I want to tell them that the power of the people is greater than those of us in power. The coming election is about your future,” he said.
“I appreciate you for the support that I have enjoyed in the face of challenges in this administration, I can’t thank you enough. You deliberately and consciously brought me back to government in 2014 and I will never forget your role, particularly the teachers.
“My legacy was already rubbished, my achievements quashed, it was quite hopeless but for God and for you. Today, those things I needed to put right are reasonably in place by your grace and that of God, for making me who has no big family name to become a governor two times. I was taken out of power by the powers that be but the people did not take me out. I want to believe again by the grace of God and your support, I will also be the first governor to have a successor of his own,” Fayose said.
