Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has warned former Governor Kayode Fayemi, to stop boasting about the use of federal might to win the July 14 governorship election.
Fayose stated this in Ado-Ekiti on Tuesday, when the Muslim Community in the state held a gathering to appreciate the appointment of one of them, Kazeem Deji Ogunsakin, as the deputy governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
In a statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, he 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 said.
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 said.
