      What is your problem? We, Ekiti people are not complaining. Fayose can be uding Z-Wagon and refuse to pay our salaries, it is our business, not yours or that of any non-Ekiti. Fayose is our god and messiah. No fuss about his tenure because he promised us nothing and we aren’t expecting nothing. We are ok as far as he keeps on abusing Buhari.

        He had better watch out then because I suspect Buhari set his car on fire, via remote control.

      • Kallah Bature

        Hahaha! And for crying out loud SR reported FFK saying a spiritual bomb was thrown at the G-Wagon.These are people who may not believe in God and jump at any opportunity to divide Nigerians along religious lines.The wrath of God will definitely catch up with people who use N44m of what belongs to the people to buy one vehicle for their luxury.
