Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said that his wife, Feyisetan Fayose picked his battles for him based on his chances of winning.
Fayose, who disclosed this to newsmen in his office at Ado-Ekiti said his wife, a mother-of-five, had the power to see tomorrow, and advised on the war to wage and the one to avoid.
In an apparent reference to his fight with President Muhammadu Buhari, Fayose said his wife sanctioned it and assured him of victory.
He said, “I cannot tell you that I am a perfect man, but I believe in God. I am one man that counts my blessings; name them one by one and thank God for what he has done in my life. When everybody leaves in the night, I read the Bible and look for words that will carry me the next hour. I had the privilege of being raised in a Christian home and my understanding of the Bible is deep.
“And as God will have it I have a praying mother and a giant in Christ as wife. If my wife tells me that this will happen, it will happen. If she tells me not to fight any battle, I don’t, and if she tells to go on, I do. She told me that nothing would come out of the present battle they are waging against me, and I strongly believe that because it is all about envy.”
