Fayose warns LG poll aspirants against name dropping

Ahead of the local government elections Ekiti State, Governor of Ayo Fayose has warned aspirants under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform against name dropping in order to gain undue advantage.

Giving the warning on Tuesday during a meeting he had with political appointees, the governor advised the appointees to always allow the fear of God to guide them in their decision making.

He said he had learnt that a lot of mistakes would be made in governance of the state if leaders failed to submit themselves to God, adding that his past experience had shown that appointing people into positions without God’s directive always leads to regrets.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor stressed the role of transparency in the running of the affairs of the state.

The statement read in part: “I have learnt a great lesson from things that happened in the past. Now, I want God to choose for me. I want you to see your appointment as divine and luck which must not be over-stretched. To whom much is given, much is expected. I charge you to be the collective image makers of the administration and defend it.

“You should be hard working and honest as they are the watchwords of this administration. As the state governor, I have demonstrated transparency by putting everything coming to the state on the table for all to see.

“I put the fear of God first and consult God before making any appointment. I have learnt from the past and now want God to choose for me. That is why I’m unpredictable to people.”
