Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has described himself as an authority in politics due to his years of governance.

Fayose stated this in an Interview with PUNCH, where he also hailed himself as a professor of politics.

The governor stated that he was not afraid of speaking his mind and criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administraion.

Fayose said: “Many have been silent now for the fear of the unknown. I’m the longest serving governor; I served under former presidents Olusegun Obasanjo; Goodluck Jonathan and Buhari. So I’m an experienced governor. This is why when I say things, they happen like that. Most of the things I say happen. “Some people in the APC are praising me for saying the truth always. They can’t talk. Courage is a virtue from God. Fearlessness is a virtue from God. If you don’t want to die, why are you a governor? People only want the benefits of the office, not the pains of office. I have nothing personal against anybody: I speak my mind and let the devil be ashamed.

“I’m not their mate when it comes to politics: I’m a professor of politics. I’m an authority,” Fayose added.
