“We are supporting President Jonathan because we have consulted the oracle and it revealed that he is the best for the position. It was revealed that Nigerians will benefit more under him than any other candidates.”
“Aside this, we have to show our support to Governor Ayodele Fayose who has been relating with Ekiti people closely. I believe that whatever the Governor supports must be supported by all Ekiti indigenes because Fayose is a man of the people,” he said.
