Gov Fayose Of Ekiti State Picks His Successor

Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has explained why he has picked his deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, to contest in next year’s governorship election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.

On why he changed his mind by adopting Olusola, Fayose said man proposes, but God disposes, but that this did not mean that there wouldn’t be any primary in the state.

He said the deputy governor would compete with others in the party’s primary.
He also said that his deputy had demonstrated good character, adding that he had always allowed God’s will to be done in every situation.

The governor further said other aspirants should not be afraid of his support for his deputy since there would be a primary election.
He said, “Man proposes, God disposes. Sometimes, you wish some [people] as a girlfriend, but they become your wife as perfection, judgment, and finality are exclusively of God. The young man is outstanding in character.

“Above all, constitutionally, my deputy is at liberty to run [for election] and I am at liberty to support anyone of my choice. Above all, other aspirants have nothing to fear if they have capacity to defeat him [Olusola] as the primary election is ahead.

“If my support was for them, they would not complain. Rather, they would be celebrating it by now. Most of the aspirants complaining made a success of their political career through God’s grace and by my humble self. They never complained when they were rising at the expense of others.

“The adoption [of Olusola] does not mean there will be no primary. Even for sole candidates, there must be a no or yes answer, so the primary must hold.”

    1. What's the big de? Didn't Fashola choose Ambode? Many other governors do it..

    2. Fashola did not pick Ambode. Tinubu did. Ambode and Fashola are not in good terms cos supported someone else prior to the APC Governorship primaries.

  2. Yes he endorsed Prof Eleka from Ikere-Ekiti. And I can remember vividly in 2014 after the election that Gov Fayose said once their tenure ends, he will hold his deputy and leave the office honorably as he won't want any distraction and to avoid what happened during his first tenure in 2003.

    The fact is, the people from Southern Ekiti has never been given the chance to rule Ekiti before, so they really trooped out to support their man. Let's wait for their primary election first.

    I'm so interested in who APC will give their tickets to, it's either Engr Segun Oni or Hon Bimbo Daramola. Anybody aside from these two is a straight victory for PDP candidates

    *Larry was here*

    1. Well said Larry. You're really following ekiti politics. What of kola Alabi?

    2. Tope Adebayo in the race also.
