Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has hailed the Minister of Labour and employment, Dr Chris Ngige, for campaigning for him at a rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ngige on Tuesday told the people of Ekiti State to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Fayose in Saturday’s guber polls in the State.

“Those who want Saturday to happen should raise your hand with PVCs, Mr President and leaders of our party, our people are ready,” the minister had said.

“We thank the leaders of our party especially those from the South West for forgiving the Ekiti people for the mistake they made in 2014 so they won’t make that mistake again.

“If you marry two wives you will know the one that is good, Fayose is the good one, he cooks, gives his husband food and who is not troublesome, so you must bring back Fayose on Saturday.”

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Wednesday, Fayose wrote: “I thank my good friend, Dr Chris Ngige for campaigning for me at the APC rally in Ado Ekiti yesterday.

“Dr. Ngige is a man who is not always afraid to say the truth and that’s what he demonstrated yesterday even in the presence of the President and other APC leaders.”
