No other politician in the Peoples Democratic Party attacked President Buhari during the presidential election, as much as Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose.
However, since Buhari was inaugurated, Fayose has soft-pedalled and has even had one or two praises for the President.
On Wednesday, July 15, the governor thanked President Buhari for finding an Ekitiman worthy of appointment as the Chief of Defence Staff for the first time in the history of Nigeria.
President Buhari had on Monday, July 13, appointed Major General Abayomi Gabriel Olonishakin, as the CDS of the nation.
In a press release issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the governor said he was confident that Olonishakin would exhibit the courage, intelligence, honesty and hard-work that Ekiti people are known for.
He said: “At this crucial time in the existence of Nigeria as a nation, I have no doubt that Major General Olonishakin will justify his appointment by making our country safe again.
“I therefore pray that God will continue to give him the strength and wisdom to give his best at all times.”
