Ayo Fayose - latest news, biography of ex-Ekiti governor.

Peter Ayodele Fayose was governor of Ekiti State from 29 May 2003 to 16 October 2006.

Early life and education

Peter Ayodele Fayose was born on 13 November, 1960. Fayose grew up in Ibadan, Oyo State where he attended Olivet Baptist High School, Oyo.

Political career

In 1998, Fayose began to build the People Democratic Party (PDP) of Ekiti State chapter from scratch. He had vision and he was determined and focused.

Fayose indicated his interest to contest for the governorship position to answer the call of the common masses who are already pointing a finger at him as their governor. He was faced with a heavy political battle which ordinarily he wouldn’t have made it, if not for his determination and focus.

A lot of political propagandist activist embark a political journey to slain and deter the image of Fayose just to discourage him. In 2003, “God gave Fayose victory through the masses by a free and fair electoral process” defeating the then incumbent governor of Ekiti State through the ballot, what an unprecedented event in the history of Nigeria election 1990-2003.

In 2003-2006 Research showed that Fayose was the most troubled and distracted governor in Nigeria, who was not given a peaceful and an enabling environment then, to discharge his political and constitutional responsibility that was given to him by the people. Fayose spend his time and energy on moving Ekiti state forward towards development. The manifestation of his determination and focus made Ekiti state to become one of the most developed states in Nigeria then.

Fayose was very determined and focused to bring democracy to the doorstep of every Ekiti individual. He proved to his detractors that no amount of battle or political distraction can stop him. He set the record right when he was honoured by the city people media as the best governor in Nigeria and also won the forth best governor in Nigeria by the Department of International Development (DFID) including countless awards and honour conferred to him by the international organizations and Nigerian government including private organizations, student unions and the civil society body.

His determination and focus has made him to open Ekiti state for development. He became the infrastructural master planner of Ekiti state, this is why he is been called ‘the architect and father of modern Ekiti state’.

Peter Ayodele Fayose is the PDP flag bearer in the 2014 Governorship election in Ekiti State slated for June 21, 2014. He won the election and has been declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the new Governor-Elect, Ekiti State, to be inaugurated on Oct 16, 2014. Fayose also extended to working with fayemi so as to ensure peace.
