Ayosele Fayose, a few hours ago, Governor of Ekiti State, could not believe himself when most of his political appointees boycotted church thanksgiving service held today, Sunday at the Government House in Ado Ekiti, the state capital to end his tenure.
Information reaching us at Greenbarge Reporters said that his political appointees were also absent on Friday at the dinner organized in his honour to bid him farewell.
According to information, the departing governor could not control his emotion as he was about to depart the state for Akure Airport to catch a flight.
As the thanksgiving service ended at about 11.00 am, tears had welled up in the eyes of the governor as he was about to enter his white Lexus Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).
Fayose’s wife, Mrs. Feyisetan Fayose, who noticed that her husband was shedding tears, moved closer to him as said “please take heart, please take heart.”
After the tears stopped, Fayose bade his wife, few aides and other admirers who were watching the drama bye-bye as the convoy headed for Akure.
Throughout the service, Fayose was in pensive mood and his voice was laden with emotion as he addressed the congregation.
The former governor said that he was leaving the state number one seat a contented and fulfilled man, adding: “I’m contented, I’m happy and I say thank you. Don’t be disparaged, don’t worry about me, I will come back. I will rise to the glory of God. I have enjoyed uncommon grace; I will never complain but thank God.”
