Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, has likened former governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi to a mad a mad man.
Fayemi who is Fayose’s predecessor is the current minister of Solid Minerals Development.
Fayose who spoke on an AIT programme, People, Politics and Power, also described himself as “Peter the rock”, saying anyone he hits, lands in trouble.
Fayose said the All Progressives Congress (APC) will not win a single local government in the forthcoming election, and told Kayode Fayemi, his predecessor, that he is free to return to office.
“If Fayemi feels like coming back, it is a legitimate decision, let him do that by first getting the ticket of his political party,” he said.
“But if APC wins one local government in Ekiti, come 2018, I will concede that election.
“Today, they control the army, they control the police, they have the DSS, they have power, but democracy has gone beyond powers that be, and besides this is Ekiti, where I have the people.
“They will meet me in Ekiti… Nobody can stop me because my name is Peter, the rock, you hit me, you are in trouble, I hit you, you are in trouble.”
Describing himself as a “street boy”, Fayose also said he is fully prepared to face the “whole machinery” of the federal government.
“I am the first Nigerian politician to defeat two incumbent governors at two different attempts. I am their master. I am going to be facing the whole machinery of the federal government, and I am fully prepared. They should forget about hijacking Ekiti. It’s shameful for the federal government to be taking states,” he said.
“All I am saying is that Ekiti is not Ondo, I am fully ready. I am a street boy. I am streetwise to the core. I don’t have another business outside politics, so I am ready… If you leave your clothe for a mad man, he will rub it on the ground, so, I won’t leave this one for Fayemi.”
Fayose described himself as “God’s anointed”, telling Nigerians that he is one politician they should look out for.
