Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, on Thursday expressed his patience on God for the choice of the candidate by the Ekiti people, who would succeed him as governor come 2018.

The governor made this known in Ikere-Ekiti while flagging off the last phase of the dualisation of the town’s roads, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in Ado Ekiti.

The statement said that the governor, who was responding to Ikere-Ekiti people’s demand that they should produce his successor, said he had taken the matter to God in prayers and was waiting for His directive.

“While saying that Ikere-Ekiti, like any other town in the state, could produce their children to seek election into office of the governor, he urged them ‎to also help him take the matter before God.

“With God all things are possible; I will advise you to ‎take the matter to the Lord in prayers since you are legitimately qualified like any other town in the state.

“As a leader of the party, I must create a level-playing ground for all aspirants; it is God who puts people in positions of authority.

“I am currently waiting on God to give me the directive on who to support for the coming election; as for when I will come out with my choice of candidate, time will tell.

“We still have over a year before the election and I hope that by the time we clock three years in office in October, the coast will have been clearer,” the governor was quoted as saying.
