Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, said that former president Jonathan made a sacrifice like Jesus did.
Ayodele Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State, recently compared former president Goodluck Jonathan to Jesus. While commenting after the Governorship primaries in Bayelsa state, Fayose was full of praise for former President Goodluck Jonathan. He said Goodluck Jonathan acted like Jesus Christ.
Conducting an election that worked against his interest, he gave it all. Jesus Christ did exactly the same to save souls. Keep your fingers crossed. Every battle against you will fall by at your feet. There is a purpose of God for everything, you have done your best, leave the rest to God.
The Ekiti State Governor also acknowledged the role Jonathan played in his political career.
A president took me out of the government house by force and another President gave me a leverage and a platform to come back. To whom much is given, much much is expected.
Governor Ayodele Fayose praised Goodluck Jonathan as a foremost African leader and the saviour of Nigeria.
I am a governor that has no apology for supporting you. Everybody must remember that it is a virtue to be courageous to defend the truth. Whether you throw your own virtue away, will not take away our own party. Jonathan is a man to be recognized in the whole world.
Your Excellency, the former President of Nigeria, the son of Africa, I don’t want to say the son of Nigeria, my former President, you have done what no African leader has done. You threw in the towel to save Nigeria, you gave us all the relative peace we are enjoying. You remain a man after my heart.
