God instructed me to me to pick my deputy as successor - Ayo Fayose - BellaNaija

Governor Ayo Fayose

Ekiti State governor Ayo Fayose, at a PDP rally on Monday in Ado Ekiti, declared that God directed him to support his Deputy, Kolapo Olusola-Eleka, to succeed him.

“Olusola never said he wanted to be deputy governor, but God instructed me to pick him. I said we will go together after our tenure, but God said I should allow him to stay; that what I said was my own opinion,” Fayose told the huge crowd.
A former minister of state for works Dayo Adeyeye, a serving senator Biodun Olujimi, and Nigeria’s former envoy in Canada Dare Bejide, had indicated interest in the PDP’s ticket for the July 14 governorship poll.
The trio, along with a former Fayose aide and justice commissioner, Owoseni Ajayi, had jointly rejected the adoption of Olusola as the PDP’s sole candidate and described the step as “pedestrian and undemocratic”.
But Fayose, who spoke at the rally held at Okesa area, said that he was not rattled by the negative utterances hurled at him by the anti-Olusola aspirants.
“The PDP has taken a position which we think is in the best interest of the state; we shall not be distracted by those opposed to this step,” he said.
He expressed confidence that the PDP will win the July 14 election “by God’s grace”.
Fayose said that the large turn out of people for the rally was a testimony of PDP’s popularity in Ekiti, and warned those thinking of rigging the election to perish that thought as the people would resist that.
He said that his administration had achieved a lot in the areas of infrastructure.
“We have improved on infrastructural development. We built a flyover at Oja Oba market and also built a new governor’s office. We have executed many projects,” he said.
He dismissed allegations that his government had borrowed N56 billion, and declared that he had not borrowed “even a dime” since he came into office.
“Let my opponents know that the elections are not won by propaganda. If they are sure of what they are saying, let them tell us the bank that gave the loan and also produce the papers leading to the transactions,” he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
