Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has today revealed that his sons attend Government owned SUBEB schools in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
He made this revelation while delivering the convocation lecture of the Benson Idahosa University (BIU), Benin, Edo State.
While fielding questions after delivering the lecture titled “Education and Actualization”, Fayose said handlers of the sector must stay true to their words and allow those concerned to take the driver’s seat.
“I withdrew my sons from Olashore International School in Osun State and put them in SUBEB Schools in Ado-Ekiti. My sons attended institutions in Nigeria. Many people in the country say something and do other things,” he added.
It should be recalled that Governor Fayose had earlier declared his interest to run for the Presidency in 2019. He made this known while addressing Journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital in June 2017.
“I have defeated two incumbent governors in two different attempts. So, defeating the All Progressives Congress in the coming presidential election would be a walkover. Many did not believe that I can come back as governor of Ekiti State after eight years. I don’t know how God did it. This time, I am going to the presidency. God is taking me there but I don’t know how. I have penchant for taking powers; that one in Buhari’s hand. I would take it. I’m going straight to that Villa. I’m the next president. I want to be the next president of Nigeria. My own won’t be this change that has brought nothing. We are going to represent the people well and tell them the truth” he said.
