Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has put out the word about where he is headed next in his political career - and that would be the seat of national power, the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Fayose, who has been linked with the desire to run for that office with the current National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as Vice President, Ali Modu Sheriff, in 2019, confirmed the speculation when he told his people in Ado, capital of the state that he is indeed "qualified" for the office.

He was quoted at saying during the May edition of ‘Meet Your Governor’ his monthly media chat as saying: "Senator Ali Modu Sheriff is the PDP chairman and he is going to continue in office. If he gives me the VP slot, it is a good thing for Ekiti people even though, you cannot set out to say you want to be VP.


“But you people should not worry yourself about 2019 because nobody knows who will be alive in 2019 but mentioning my name for VP is good for Ekiti.

“I am qualified to be VP if it is the will of God. God is taking me to a higher place, how, I don’t know.”

He also reiterated his earlier warning that he would not fold his hands over the issue of rampaging Fulani herdsmen, adding: “If you bring your cow to come and eat up my farmland, I will put Gammalin 20 inside the water that they will drink from. That is what I will do to those destroying our communities and raping our wives,” he said.

“I heard that 83 cows have been killed since I made the statement. If you come to Afao and eat up my palm tree, we have set traps for grass cutters and rodents and the trap will catch them.

“There is no land for grazing in Ekiti state. Power to assign land belongs to the governor. Tell them that there is no land for grazing here because it is my right to sign the certificate of occupancy.”
