This was the justification statement for being a Christian and the venturing into politics of Governors Peter Ayodele Fayose, the governor of Ekiti state, at the Oduduwa hall of the Obafemi Awolowo University on Saturday, 24th June 2017.
The governor who was represented by the Chief of Staff of Ekiti state, Mr Dipo Anisulowo, at a program tagged, "THE MARKET PLACE", a public discuss on vital issues that shaped the world. The programme was organized by GILCOM a.k.a Charismatic Students Fellowship. The alumni fellowship of God is love Community OAU claimed that his political success was because he harkened to the voice of God which he did in 2000. The governor also justified his outspokenness by saying, "he is the voice of the common man" and if he did not speak his conscience will not be free. He reiterated his service to man right from 2000 when he was a philanthropist, a humanitarian and he gave out medical support, amenities and education- scholarships.
He accused that his first impeachment was based on the conspiracy of the Elites in Ekiti state. But no matter what, he was bold as a Christian in face of tribulations so far he obeyed God's call. In the course of the event, the Governor was also presented an award which was received by his representative.
