The Ekiti state governor is not a stranger to hogging news headlines; In fact, he seems to revel in it. At the swearing in of the new executives for the Ekiti chapter of the Road Transport Employers Association, Mr. Fayose made a shocking confession.
He said, “Please, I want to commend you for contributing immensely to the development of the state’s economy, but don’t allow yourselves to be used by evil doers. You can see that some kidnappers were paraded recently. Information from them revealed that they have been using some of your members.
“I was once a driver like you. I used the money I got from driving to sponsor myself for HND at Ibadan Polytechnic, but I did not get desperate. All I’m saying is that being a driver you can make it in life. You will become what you want to become in life with hard work. Don’t join evil gang for you to get rich overnight, try and rise through the ladder like we did.”
He reminded drivers of the need to respect the laws and be law abiding as they carried out their activities.
“Though I am part of you, if you breach the law, I won’t save or spare you. You will be arrested and prosecuted by the security agents,”
