Speaking to members of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), during the swearing-in of the new State Executive of the union in Ado Ekiti, Gov. Fayose warned them against crime.
Gov. of Ekiti reveals long kept secret
Please, I want to commend you for contributing immensely to the development of the state’s economy, but don’t allow yourselves to be used by evil doers.
The highlight of the ceremony, was when Fayose revealed to the drivers, that he was a 'danfo driver' - commercial bus driver before.
He specifically told them not to take part in kidnapping.
In his words, he said “Please, I want to commend you for contributing immensely to the development of the state’s economy, but don’t allow yourselves to be used by evil doers. You can see that some kidnappers were paraded recently. Information from them revealed that they have been using some of your members."
Adding that “I was once a driver like you. I used the money I got from driving to sponsor myself for HND at Ibadan Polytechnic, but I did not get desperate. All I’m saying is that being a driver you can make it in life. You will become what you want to become in life with hard work. Don’t join evil gang for you to get rich overnight, try and rise through the ladder like we did.”
