He said: “The governor was one of the people who fought for the creation of Ekiti State. He was a young man at that time and he was working with the chiefs: Ewi, Alaaye, Alara. So, he knew how Ekiti was created. Apart from that, we have a lot of confidence and hope in his ability to regain some of the good things that the state had lost in the past. So, being an intelligent person, I believe Ekiti would prosper under him.”

On Ajodun Ido 2022, the Olojudo said: “It is the people of Ido that would celebrate the day. So, our sons and daughters are coming home.

“Those abroad, especially the United States and the United Kingdom, may not come home but we would see their hands. Our friends would also come. Normally when we are doing Ajodun Ido, we always have targets.

“We have a new governor, he is homegrown, ‘Ekiti Boy’. I expect him to be here. Our son, Cyril Fasuyi, is going to be the next Senator for Ekiti North…”

“We have another one, Tunde Ajayi, who is going to the House of Representatives. Hopefully, when they are there, they would bring their friends, and we would lift ourselves up”.
