Ayodele Fayose, the former Governor of Ekiti State, says his next ambition in life is to become Nigeria’s President or a Pastor.
Ayodele Fayose did not mention when his plans to pursue such ambition, saying God’s time is the best and never work with human calculations.
Ayodele Fayose said God had been so kind to him and his family, most especially in his journeys of life, saying the best way to appreciate God is to work in his vineyard.
“I forgave all everyone who that had offended me, weather in and outside of the office.”
He declared that a good number of his most dependable and trusted followers who he lifted from nothing, had either left him or teamed up with his political foes to pull him down, the moments they realized he was no longer in power.
Ayodele Fayose went on to reel out names of some of his former trusted aides that he claimed to let him down after leaving office to team up with his perceived political foes.
On Saturday, the former Governor, who featured on a live programme aired on People’s FM, (104.1)9 an Ado Ekiti based radio station, a night where he addressed the people of the state, said whichever that comes first out of the two ambitions, would be his ultimate choice.
He, however, debunked the rumour that he was nursing the ambition to become a senator, saying he hates being a senator who would be making laws that the executive would not have the courage to implement.
According to correspondent who monitored the programme, reports that Fayose said he was eminently qualified to become Nigeria’s president if people like Goodluck Jonathan, Olusegun Obasanjo, and Muhammadu Buhari could be so graced to rule as president of Nigeria.
According to him, his courageous spirit, popularity, unique contributions to the upliftment of Ekiti State and other remarkable contributions to lifting different categories of people with no hope of becoming anything in life across Nigeria, were enough credentials to make him become Nigeria’s president.
The former Governor expressed gratitude to his wife, Feyisetan for standing by him through thick and thin, stressing that her support and cooperation played essential roles in his political life.
He also thanked others who believed so much in his philosophy, vision and mission, charging residents to be peaceful in their approach to issues, no matter the volume of provocation.
