Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has assured the people of the state that he will do more in terms of project execution and welfare programmes given the fact that he was able to accomplish a lot in the last two years in the face of serious economic challenges.
He also expressed optimism that things would be better in the coming years.
He spoke in Ado-Ekiti on Sunday during a thanksgiving service to mark his second year in office.
According to the governor, who gave account of his stewardship to the people, all he would want the people to do is to further support the government and pray for its success.
“We are here today celebrating the goodness of God in our lives and the state in general, not the structures we have been able to put in place. We couldn’t have been able to do that without God’s goodness, favour, support and grace. We never anticipated the firece battle we were confronted with, but God has been kind to us.
‎”I don’t have enemies per se but people who want me to excel and who want to know that I have a God that is higher than all negative powers. And when I wanted to contest, and the battle was great, I called on God that if for the sake of some special children that are in my care, He should make the journey a success for me and He did,”he stated.
The governor said it is not in his character to ‎hold any grudge against anybody, saying he preferred telling people their faults, if they have done anything wrong, rather than engaging in backbiting.
He appealed to the people of the state to see Ekiti as their project that must not be allowed to fail.
“When election is conducted and a winner emerges, the next thing is to support the winner and wait until another election year. That is what they do in places like United States, but here, some people still see everyday after the election as electioneering and campaigning at the detriment of the collective interest of the state,” he said.
In her testimony, the wife of the governor, Mrs Feyisetan Fayose, said God has been gracious amd merciful to her family and the people of the state.
She recalled all the battles her husband fought to emerge governor, before being inaugurated and even after assuming office.
“God has been gracious and merciful to us and the state. He has shown us unmerited favour and the power and pillar behind this government is God,” she said.
In his sermon, the Chaplain of the Government House, Pastor Seyi Olusola, said Fayose had every cause to thank God.
While praying that God would sustain Fayose in office to the end, the cleric also said the people of the state must know that only God chooses leaders for the people and He has chosen Fayose to lead Ekiti at this point in time.
