Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State is not new in the business of frolicking with locals within his constituency.
The governor who is known for mixing freely with people of all classes of the social divide stunned many on Friday, August 28, 2015 when he appointed a 72-year old carpenter, who has no certificate as the caretaker Chairman of Moba Local Government Area.
He also appointed a graduate to act as Special Assistant to Mr. Afolayan.
Also appointed were Bayode Ayeni and Owolabi Ajewole as chairmen for Ikole and Ijero councils respectively.
Governor Fayose said: “In my government, whether you are educated or not, you will get something. The vote of a professor and an illiterate is the same.
“So, under my administration, those who are not educated can rise to any
level they want.”
While appreciating the governor, Mr. Afolayan thanked the governor, adding that he would do his best, regardless of his educational qualification.
He said: “I have never gone to school for a day, but that does not reduce my intelligence,” he said.
“I may not be educated or have any certificate, but I have brain and experience to lead the affairs of the council.”
