Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has said the state will further explore agricultural opportunities which he discovered during his recent pilgrimage to Israel.
In a statement by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday, 29th October, 2015, the governor made the disclosure in an interview with journalists after arriving from Israel.
“My trip to Israel was both religious and economic. We went there to pray for Ekiti State and Nigeria. There were other state governors from Benue, Plateau and even the Speaker of the House of Representatives was there.
“By God’s grace, our state will experience great rebirth in all ramifications. I will use the fresh anointing from God to pray for our dear state. The agricultural opportunities we found out in Israel, we will further explore to bring the sector back to the forefront,” he said.
Commenting on the revelation by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, that he prayed for him to become the speaker, Fayose said all the glory belongs to God.
“Yes, he came and we prayed and God can use anybody. But all the glory belongs to God,” he said.
Those trying to twist what happened for political reason, well that is their own cup of tea. As far as I am concerned, God can use anybody for His glory,” he said.
