God will choose my successor, Fayose tells angry people of Ikere-Ekiti


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said he is waiting on God to lead him to pick his successor as the governor of the state in the October 2018 election.

He stated this in Ikere-Ekiti on Wednesday evening while flagging off the last phase of the dualisation of the town’s main road.

This was contained in a press release on Thursday by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti.
Fayose, who was reacting to the demand by the people of the town that Ikere-Ekiti should produce the next governor of the state, said he had taken the matter to God in prayers and was waiting for God’s directive.
While saying that Ikere-Ekiti, like any other town in the state, could prod their children to seek election into the office of the governor, he urged the people ‎to also take the matter before God.
‎”With God, all things are possible. I advise you to ‎take the matter to the Lord in prayers since you are legitimately qualified like any other town in the state.
“As a leader of the party, I must create a level playing ground for all aspirants. It is God who puts people in positions of authority.
“I am currently waiting on God to give me the directive on who to support in the coming election. As for when I will come out with my choice of candidate, we still have over a year before the election and I hope that by the time we clock three years in office in October, the coast would have been clearer,” he said.
