Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, has described the loss of the outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, in the June 21 governorship election as a mystery which the All Progressives Congress must unravel,Punch reports.
“Somewhere something went wrong and it has to be corrected. That is the message I have for all of you. Be patient but at the same time be watchful.
He advised the people to put aside all the mystery surrounding the loss and continue to build on the “good foundation” Fayemi had established.
“Many people within and outside Ekiti were mystified. There is a clarity in my mind. That clarity had been demonstrated today and has been manifested in the four years of Fayemi.
“My own message is that put the mystery aside and the emotional attachment. Continue to build on the foundation that has been laid by him. The state has been resurrected in a way that all of us should be proud of.
“I’m glad that there is no sadness on the face of anybody. I’m happy I do not perceive any iota of regret on the face of anyone. That is the way it should be.”
Wole Soyinka made the statements during the inauguration of the new Government House known as ‘Ayoba Villa’ in Ado Ekiti on Sunday.Follow @BeautifulBlogga
