Nigeria yet to have the right leader — Fayose

Governor, Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said that the nation is yet to have the right leadership to take it to the promised land, just as he took a swipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) saying that the party was found on deceit.

“If you are in PDP, you are a pen robber, but if you gate-crash into APC, you become a saint automatically. Within  one and half years, the APC government has grounded the economy. Unfortunately, Muhammadu Buhari cannot find solution to hunger, unemployment, depressed economy and insecurity in the country.

“Nigerians should brace up to change the change because the right leader, the right president, is yet to come. What we have now is an aberration,” the governor asserted.

Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Idowu Adelusi, the governor said his return to power was beyond human comprehension, adding that the “stone which was rejected by the builder had became a strong pillar for the house.”

Governor Fayose who turns 56 on Tuesday, while addressing members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly at the Government House in Ado Ekiti on Friday, said though his road had been bumpy, but because he was a man of destiny, he had never lost any battle.

“I wasn’t born with sliver spoon, but with a wood in my mouth. My struggles in life, founded on truth, hard work and firm belief in God, have landed me where I am today.

“I remember God telling me never to avenge, but to do good to all men.  In doing so lies my victory and progress.”

Governor Fayose, who went down memory lane about the conspiracy of 2006 against him by the then members of the state House of Assembly which saw to his exit from the seat of power by an impeachment, was later dismissed as illegitimate by the Supreme Court.

Speaking about his performance in two years in office, Fayose said he had a pact with Ekiti people to transform the state, adding that he had ideas up his sleeves but he is being hampered by time and finance.

However, the governor promised to complete the Ado Ekiti flyover project King’s Market, Judiciary building, new Governor’s Office, Ikere – Ado road dualised and other projects going on at the local governments. He urged Ekiti people to continue to support him and ignore the lies.
