God Will Choose My Successor–Fayose

Ekiti State Governor,Ayodele Fayose has revealed that God will choose his successor ahead of Ekiti State’s gubernatorial election slated for 2018.

This was made known in a statement issued by his aide on New Media, Lere Olayinka on Tuesday.

Fayose called on the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)in the state to shun bickering adding that he has nothing against the aspirations of those eyeing the Ekiti top seat.

The governor stressed that; “Followers need not create a wedge between me and gubernatorial aspirants. As much as aspirants have the right to aspire, I also reserve the right to support whoever God asks me to support.

“If I were asked to pick a candidate to succeed me, I would have picked Kayode Oso straight off. But I have called him into the room and told him to allow me to seek God’s consent concerning it. I have called my deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, I have also called Bisi Omoyeni into the room and asked him to allow me to seek God’s consent. Whoever God chooses, we will support among the aspirants.

“Whoever that is not the one, the spirit of sportsmanship should be embraced.

“I have nothing against Prince Adedayo Adeyeye, I have great respect for him, from ministerial appointment to chairmanship at Ekiti State University and then his recommendation to the party at the national level, I have always stood by him.I wouldn’t have done that for someone I don’t love. So mischief makers had better look elsewhere to play their game.”

Fayose appealed to party members to downplay personal agenda and ensure the party’s interest is put on the front burner, adding that “never will any candidate be imposed on the people.

“We won’t allow anybody destroy the goodwill being enjoyed presently by the PDP because there is no doubt about our party’s popularity in Ekiti today.

“I want to assure you that nobody will impose anybody on you. With me here, you will all get justice.

“Those we imposed in the past disappointed us. The system should be allowed to run its course,” he said.
