Fayose: I read the Bible every night when everyone has left

Fayose: I read the Bible every night when everyone has left

Ayo Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, says he is an avid reader of the Bible — at night when all his visitors have left him alone.

In an interview with Vanguard, Fayose said he is far from perfect even though his belief in God is unshakable.

Fayose, a controversial personality, also revelled in the privilege of having a “praying mother and a giant in Christ as wife”.

“I cannot tell you that I am a perfect man, but I believe in God. I am one man that counts my blessings; name them one by one and thank God for what he has done in my life,” he said.

“When everybody leaves in the night, I read the Bible and look for words that will carry me the next hour. I had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home and my understanding of the Bible is deep. And as God will have it I have a praying mother and a giant in Christ as wife.”

The governor further explained the relevance of his wife, Feyisetan, in the decision he makes and the battles he fights.

He said his wife had already informed him that he would prevail in the investigation of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFC) into the source of funding for his election.

“If my wife tells me that this will happen, it will happen. If she tells me not to fight any battle, I don’t, and if she tells to go on, I do,” he said.

“She told me that nothing would come out of the present battle they are waging against me, and I strongly believe that because it is all about envy.”

    I wonder what Christianity have become, what is supposed to be Christlike experience have become a huge joke, full of hypocrisy.
    If there is a living legend in hypocrisy, this man is one, I know by now he would have mapped out his route through owode boarder out of nigeria by 2018,wearing a head scarf to disguise.

      it true my brother, one more thing the people in the state should understand is that the robotic governor is controlled by the giant in christ woman they didn’t vote for.
