"An Ekiti man is an Ekiti man. I appeal to everybody, you must support him."
Ayo Fayose, Ekiti State Governor is urging all indegenes of the state to support his predecessor and ministerial nominee, Kayode Fayemi during the screening of the ministerial nominees by the senate on October 13,2015.
Reports say Fayose made the call while speaking with student leaders of Ekiti origin at the conference hall of the governor's office yesterday October 7, 2015.
"Ekiti is my number one priority, I called all the house of reps and senators that went to Abuja from here, some people petitioned the national assembly, stating how Fayemi sunk Ekiti into heavy debt, I have told the members not to do that.
It is God that judge people, not we. You must support him there. If a child would die, it shouldn't be from the mother. They should not go to the house and oppose Kayode Fayemi, NO, they must never do that.
An Ekiti man is an Ekiti man. I appeal to everybody, you must support him.
All former ministers from here in the time past practically really have nothing to show because we pull one another down, we pull one another down... We must not pull them down.
If they are behaving like that, we must live a better life. Promotion does not come from man but from God Almighty"
