Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has revealed why he was at Abuja on Thursday, September 28, to witness Governor Ayo Fayose declared his ambition to run for presidency in 2019.
Fani-Kayode said he supported Fayose because like him, the Ekiti state governor is god fearing and strong.
The former minister said Fayose has "done an excellent job in his Ekiti state and he has consistently and fearlessly stood against the evil of the Buhari administration and constantly kept them on their toes."
In a statement retrieved from his Facebook page by NAIJ.com, Fani-Kayode said: "I stood with Governor Ayodele Fayose because, unlike most, he has immense courage.
"We come from completely different backgrounds and we do not agree on everything but we have a similar disposition and we share the same perspective on most things.
"He is not bound up in fear and he is not chained down by political correctness. He speaks the raw and bitter truth and he stands up for the weak and the defenceless.
"Like me he moves in the prophetic and his source of strength is the Spirit and power of God.
"We both love God and we are both men of strength, courage, faith and destiny.
"The Spirit of David and Jehu runs through us both. We neither fear death nor incarceration and we hate injustice, evil and oppression."
He added that he is sure that the Ekiti state governor would make an excellent president and would restructure the country.
He said: "The truth is that he has done an excellent job in his Ekiti state and he has consistently and fearlessly stood against the evil of the Buhari administration and constantly kept them on their toes.
"He is a Yorubaman who has the courage and conviction to say that he wants to be President. Why would I not stand with him and attend the launching of his campaign?
"I believe that he would make an excellent President and effect the necessary changes and restructurring that our country desperately needs.
"I am very proud of Ayo Fayose and I never desert or abandon my friends. He is and will always be my friend and brother."

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Fayose has said the imminent defeat of President Muhammadu Buhari in a free and fair election in 2019 is the main reason the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government is harassing and intimidating his aides and associates.
Fayose also said the “blunt truth” he told Nigerians during his declaration of interest that Buhari and the APC had nothing good to offer Nigeria had pierced the conscience of APC leaders and given them wounded heart.
NAIJ.com gathered that he, however, said he wouldn’t be intimidated into abandoning a “divine project” of rescuing the country from maladministration.
