As the curtains draw on his administration on Tuesday October 16, the outgoing Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, left the state on Sunday.

He had earlier on Saturday embarked on a ‘Thank you walk’ around major streets of Ado Ekiti, where he received accolades from traders, artisans and other residents.

Fayose, clad in a T-shirt and a pair of jean trousers, climbed through the open roof of his SUV carrying a board with the inscription, “Ekiti-Kete, Thank You All and Goodbye.”

On Sunday, tears rolled down the cheeks of many who lined up the streets to bid him farewell en route to the Akure Airport, Ondo State, where he had to board a flight.

The second term tenure of the governor ends midnight of Monday, while he has a date to keep with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday by 1pm.

Earlier at a thanksgiving held in his honour at the Government’s House Chapel, Fayose, in an emotion-laden voice, thanked the people for their support.

He told the people that he would always be with them, urging them to trust in God for a better future for him and the state.
