Deaconess Feyisetan, wife of former governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, has again prophesied that her husband will be governor again.
Mrs. Fayose declared that her husband’s return to Ekiti Government
House in the 2014 Governorship election is “certain and destined to
At her 50th birthday party in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, on Wednesday, Mrs Fayose, described her husband as the best performed governor in the history of the state, who did not “plunge the state into unnecessary debt burden”.
Speaking at the occasion held at the Ayo Fayose Campaign
Organisation’s office in Adebayo Area of Ado-Ekiti, Mrs. Fayose said,
“I am not a politician, but a woman that believes in God.
“As the Lord liveth, I have simply come to announce to you and any
other doubting Thomases of the inevitable return and restoration of my
husband, Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose to his seat as the next governor of
“By the special grace of God, his return is certain and so destined. I
am telling you that nothing can stop it. Ayo Fayose is a man with
fierce outlook, but with a good heart”.
Mrs. Fayose added that rather than plunging the state into debt,
her husband left a staggering sum of N10 billion in the state’s
coffers, saying “no wonder, almost eight years after his exit, his
name is still a household name in Ekiti.”
Responding, Fayose criticised Governor Kayode Fayemi over his statement that he would conduct Local Government election in 2014.
Describing Fayemi’s proposed action as belated, Fayose declared that
“it is a belated effort. The time is up for the present government
because the PDP has come to take over the government of Ekiti,” Fayose boasted.
The former governor, who described his wife as “an appropriate balance
and pillar of support,” said he was still relevant in the
politics of the state because of his truthfulness to the people while
in the saddle as the state chief executive.
Fayose, who likened himself to the biblical David, expressed
confidence that his political relevance would be restored in 2014
because of the confidence the people have in his leadership.
