He described Mr Fayose as a straight forward person, who spoke his mind when it mattered.
“I like the way you do things. You’re brutally frank. You say your mind, it’s a very rare quality. So, I commend for who you are,” he commended the governor.
“We will stand by you and the party in Ekiti until you retrieve your stolen mandate,” he added.
