Former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has disclosed why he is in support of Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose‘s intention to run for presidency in 2019.
Fani-Kayode who was spotted at the event Fayose held to declare his intention, said that the governor “has done an excellent job in his Ekiti state and he has consistently and fearlessly stood against the evil of the Buhari administration”.
Fani-Kayode made the disclosure in a statement to PUNCH. The statement read in part:
We come from completely different backgrounds and we do not agree on everything but we have a similar disposition and we share the same perspective on most things.
He is not bound up in fear and he is not chained down by political correctness. He speaks the raw and bitter truth and he stands up for the weak and the defenceless.
Like me he moves in the prophetic and his source of strength is the Spirit and power of God.
We both love God and we are both men of strength, courage, faith and destiny.
The Spirit of David and Jehu runs through us both. We neither fear death nor incarceration and we hate injustice, evil and oppression.
The truth is that he has done an excellent job in his Ekiti state and he has consistently and fearlessly stood against the evil of the Buhari administration and constantly kept them on their toes.
He is a Yorubaman who has the courage and conviction to say that he wants to be President. Why would I not stand with him and attend the launching of his campaign?
He is and will always be my friend and brother.
