Fayose who is also chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors’ forum said the revelation about becoming the future leader of Nigeria was made known to him by God.
The governor made this made this disclosure in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, while speaking with some journalists on Saturday night at an Annual Media Get-Together, held at the Government House.
Although he was not specific as to when and how the prophecy will be fulfilled, Fayose said he believed it will be made manifest just the same way and manner he emerged governor of Ekiti state twice against all odds.
“It is according to God’s will that I will one day become the president of Nigeria.
“Do not bother to ask me questions as to how this will materialise, I also do not know how it will happen but all I know is that I shall one day occupy the presidential villa, not as a visitor but as president. So many people in top positions will be displaced and removed from their positions for my rising.
“God has told me I will rise in the nation’s political arena thrice, It has happened two times, all wars waged against me never stand.”
Governor Fayose suggested as a basic fact, that he was on the good records of most Nigerians, who according to him, would always be prepared to make God’s plans for him come to manifestation at the appointed time.
Considering his office as the chairman of PDP governors forum, Governor Fayose promised to use the office to correct many societal anomalies and also fight the cause of the poor masses.
He advised journalists not to allow themselves to be drawn into politics while appreciating them for their effective coverage of the state. Doing so, he pointed out, would cause people to doubt their integrity and make them inherit the enemies of other people. The Governor also ceased the opportunity to appeal to Nigerians to pray for their leaders and stand by them against all odds.
The chairman, Ekiti State council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), in his remarks applauded the governor for his support to the union.
Governor Fayose also told the gathering that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had again frozen his personal accounts with Zenith Bank, adding that the bank refused to honour his cheque based on a directive from the EFCC when he went there on Friday.
This came three days after a Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti, dismissed a motion for stay of execution of the judgment unfreezing the accounts for lacking in merit.
While ruling on the motion filed by the EFCC against his judgment unfreezing the accounts and delivered on December 13, Justice Taiwo Taiwo said that “once a judgment is being executed, you cannot stay the execution again.”
“This is the impunity we are condemning. The bank and the EFCC got all the judgments of the court, but the agency still harassed the bank to act against the law. If I sent somebody with a cheque, they could give the excuse but I was there myself; acts of impunity such as this cannot continue. We will challenge them.”
