Governor Ayodele Fayose on Thursday, November 19, went to some streets of Ado Ekiti, Ekiti state capital, with birthday goodies as part of activities marking the celebration of his 56th birthday. According to Fayose, it is only proper for him to give back to the same people who voted him into office. Fayose shares his birthday cake on the streets
He said: “It is a show of love to my people, we can’t sit in the government house and enjoy the comfort of the office without remembering them, I got a lot of gifts on my birthday, cakes, yam tubers, cows, rice and so on, how many can I eat? How many clothes can I wear at a time?
“It is just normal, just good for me to go back to the street and give it back to thebpeople that put me in the government house, this is my style, this is me naturally, just that this time around it is more elaborate moving from one junction to the other to ensure about 500 persons per junction get something small on my birthday.
“The more people you touch, the better for your life today and tomorrow. These are the set of people that will never walk into the government house asking for contract, asking for help, they will not even be allowed to get in unless the governor leave the comfort of his office to come and meet with them wherever they are and that is exactly what I am doing.
“These are the people who employed us into office, they should not be abandoned for one minute, we must stay with them continuously at every opportunity.”
