On Thursday, Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose celebrated his wife’s 52nd birthday by releasing a press statement and a throwback photo of the couple.

In the statement issued on his behalf by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, Gov. Fayose poured encomium on the celebrant, Mrs. Feyi Fayose describing her as the key figure in his stormy political career.

The statement reads: “She has distinguished herself as a role model. A person who believes in modesty and totally reserved.

“Her‎ prayer life has made a difference and has impacted positively on me. Any woman that marries a man like me, who is generally seen to be fearless and courageous and who is vulnerable to attacks by political opponents, cannot afford not to have a woman with her sterling qualities as wife. Only a virtuous, Godly and resolute woman like her have what it takes to stand firm in the face of attacks.

“I appreciate her as she adds another year and also appreciate her care for our children. God has brought her to this kingdom at this auspicious time when many supposed men of honour have disappeared into the thin air.

“I want to assure her that her labour of love will not be in vain. She is a woman to emulate for her modesty and inspiring and fervent prayer life and only her can be an ideal wife for a man like me.”
