However, the governor Fayose, who is also the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum, has not made any formal declaration as to whether he would go back to the denomination where his late father, Pastor Olufemi Oluwayose, played a prominent role.
NAN further reported that his father was a cleric in the Christ Apostolic Church, while he currently attends the Deeper Life Bible Church.
On his incessant criticisms of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, Fayose said everything was being done in good faith
“My criticism of President Buhari is not out of hatred, but to lead to making the necessary corrections. When a driver is driving dangerously and you are sitting in the vehicle, you have to call him to order, otherwise, both of you will perish.
“President Buhari should allow the country to move forward. Age is not on his side and is also not a plus for him. Anybody calling on him to contest again is his enemy and not doing him any good. Moreover, such a call is a great disservice to our country.
On this year’s governorship election in Ekiti State, Fayose expressed the confidence that his party, the PDP, would win convincingly and he is still very much into the game.
