Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, yesterday revealed how he won the battle initiated against him by the All Progressives Congress, APC, through its 19 lawmakers in the last state House of Assembly. He however pledged not to persecute those who were involved in the plot to impeach him but to leave them in the hands of God, to whom vengeance belongs.
At a thanksgiving service to mark his victory and the inauguration of the 5th Ekiti State House of Assembly at the Deeper Life Campground, Ajebandele, Ikere Road, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State, the governor who dedicated his triumph to God said: “This victory is dedicated to God and the good people of Ekiti State who stood by him during the trying period,” noted that he now have time to give the people the dividends of democracy.
He said: “I am not here to tell you that the battle is over because they would want to try another means,” but remarked that “I have won the battle in all the traps set for me.
“At a point the battle seems too much for me and I was confused but the inspirations of God keep telling me that this battle will not consume me. At a point, there was no longer saliva in my mouth,” he said.
According to him, his impeachment crisis looked like “the nation of Israel, a nation amidst many enemies. The nation of Israel has not lost any battle but the nation of Israel is Ayo Fayose. And he has not lost any battle.”
His wife, Mrs. Feyisetan Fayose, said she had a premonition of the political crises that rocked the state.
Mrs. Fayose, in her testimony, recalled that God revealed to her in a dream that the state would pass through a turbulent period in March and April but with an assurance that He would not abandon them.
She said: “In the dream, God told me that March and April will be stubborn. He said that we should get prepared for it. But God promised to see us through and he did.”
He called on the people of the state to continue to support him as he continues to move the state forward.
Fayose thanked individuals who supported him in his struggle from his preparation for the governorship election, the tribunal and the impeachment crisis which he finally won at last.
The church service featured prayers for the outgone lawmakers and their successors, traditional rulers, the government and governor of Ekiti State and the deputy governor and the people of the state.
