3-In-1: Fayose Goes Traditional With Masquerade
The governor seems to have his eyes fixed on 2019 and he wants Nigerians to know that he belongs to everyone.
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state is not one to conform to popular expectations of how a governor should conduct himself.
Since he began his second tenure as governor in 2014, he has repeatedly shown he cares little about being the odd one among his peers.
The governor, who refers to himself as a “man of the people”, was recently spotted posing with a masquerade.
With that, the governor has circled the three major religions in Nigeria – Islam, Christianity and African tradition.
Three months ago, the governor, who is a Christian, mounted the pulpit to preach the gospel.
On September 1, Alfa Fayose joined Muslims at the Eid ground in Ado EKiti, the state capital, to say the Eid-el-Kabir prayers.
And now, Lere Olayinka, his spokesman, has taken to Facebook to announce that “even to the masquerade, Gov Fayose listens and interacts”.
From sharing cakes on the streets to riding on commercial motorcycles, driving heavy-duty trucks, Fayose has also taken to roadside tailoring, small scale businesses.
