Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has denied claims that he was nursing a Senatorial ambition.

Fayose, a two-term governor, who hails from Ekiti Central Senatorial District, said, “I don’t like to be a senator who will be making laws that the executive would not have the courage to implement.”

He made the comments on a special radio programme in Ado Ekiti as part of activities marking his 60th birthday anniversary.

Fayose said, “I am eminently qualified to become Nigeria’s President if people like Olusegun Obasanjo, Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammadu Buhari could be so ‘graced’ to be presidents.”

According to him, his popularity, courageous spirit, as well as unique contributions to the upliftment of Ekiti state; and likewise other remarkable contributions to lifting different categories of people who had no hope of becoming anything in life; across the country are enough credentials to make him become Nigeria’s president.

Asked when he was going to join the race; he said, “God’s time does not always agree with humans’ calculations. But God has been so kind to me in my journeys through life. The best way to appreciate God is to work for Him.”
