Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose got more than he bargained for yesterday  during the wedding of the daughter of Oba Adejugbe, the Ewi of Ado Ekiti at the Anglican Church Cathedral Ado Ekiti.

Fayose came into the Church in a white native attire  when the Church Service was in progress but shouts of Ole, Ole (thief! Thief! ) rented the air!

This almost interrupted the Church Service as many people in the Church called him 419 Governor, a destroyer of peoples property and a wicked governor.

When the heat on Fayose became unbearable midway into the service, he was ferried from the Church by security agents to under the bridge where his car was parked. He got another surprise waiting for him outside the Church as a big crowd was waiting for him. He was sandwiched between security agents and the Deputy Governor who ensured he entered his car unhurt and zoomed off. Not done, the crowd ran after his vehicle and pelted it with stones!

Meanwhile, while abuses were being hurled at Fayose inside the church, former Governor Mimiko felt so unconcerned and kept to himself. Also present at the church were prominent traditional rulers like the Deji of Akure, Osemawe of Ondo and many traditional rulers in Ekiti State.

As the 2019 election approaches, Fayose may face many battles from within his own party and from the ruling APC in the State.

However, Media Aide to Mr. Ayodele Fayose, the immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Lere Olayinka has berated the State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) for invading the Cathedral Church, Ado Ekiti today, with miscreants ostensibly to attack the former Governor and his entourage.

Olayinka said it was funny that Fayemi’s response to the overwhelming reception Fayose received yesterday in Ikere and Ado Ekiti when he returned to the State exactly two months after he left was to arrange miscreants to invade the house of God where the wedding ceremony of the daughter of Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe was being held.

In a release issued in Ado Ekiti on Saturday, Olayinka, who thanked Ekiti people for their continuous demonstration of love towards Fayose, added that; “Rather than sending less than 15 miscreants to the house of God to boo Fayose, Fayemi should either face the reality of his rejection by the people or engage in actions that will make the people to love him.”

He said the miscreants attempted to carry out their assignment of booing Fayose and calling him unprintable names but their voice was overwhelmed as hundreds of people hailed the former governor as he entered the church.

“Even if the governor and his party of thugs do not regard the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, shouldn’t they have at least accorded the dignitaries who came from far and near to honour the revered monarch respect by keeping their miscreants away from the church?

“And rather than achieving their sinister aim, Fayose entered the church amidst loud ovation and this should get Fayemi and his men to begin to ask themselves what they have done wrong instead of adding more salts to the injury of their rejection by the people,” he said.

The former governor’s spokesman also accused the State governor of sponsoring a faction of the Drivers’ Unions to block the front of a motor-park along Ado – Ikere road to attack Fayose yesterday, not knowing that he had already entered Ado Ekiti.

He said “Ekiti people will continue to love Fayose because he served them well and most importantly, he never distanced himself from them, counseling Fayemi to submit himself to the authority of the people by acting as their servant instead of his present display of power arrogance.”
