- Ayodele Fayose has revealed that he will like to become a pastor
- Fayose said he wants this to show his gratitude to God for sparing his life
- The former Ekiti governor also hinted at his desire to become a president in the country
Not much is heard from the immediate former governor of Ekiti, Ayodele Fayose, especially after he left office in 2019 following the last gubernatorial election in the state.
But he spoke again on his 60th birthday which took place on Saturday, November 14, in which he expressed deep gratitude to God for preserving his life, PM News reports.
Speaking with journalists on Saturday, Fayose disclosed that he will like to pursue the ambition to become a pastor to show how grateful he is to God.
The former governor also revealed that will like to become Nigeria's president some day.
Fayose also debunked claims that he nurses a dream to get the post of a senator, and lamented that many of his friends and allies abandoned him after he lost the governorship poll.
He also shared on Twitter a photo of his first political poster:
Meanwhile, suspected thugs removed the cap of Fayose during a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally in Ondo state.
In a viral video, the former governor was making his way up to the podium at the grand campaign of Eyitayo Jegede (SAN) ahead of the Ondo guber election when suspected hoodlums moved towards him and removed his cap.
Fayose, who was in the midst of party supporters when the incident happened, was also threatened — prompting the former governor to call for his protection, saying he must not be killed the same way Chief Bola Ige was murdered.
Legit.ng understood that Ige, a senior Nigerian lawyer and former minister of justice, was murdered in December 2001 shortly after his cap was removed at the palace of Ooni of Ife.
