Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state governor, arguably tops the list of Nigeria’s governors making the headlines almost on a daily basis.
On Friday, the “people’s governor” was in the news, as always. But neither for any state function nor government gathering.
He joined Muslim faithful in Ekiti in celebrating this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.
Adorned in a white turban, a red muffler and a white caftan, the governor looked focused on the prayers being said, with his ‘Misbaha’ clinched with his right hand.
The venue of the prayer was the Muslim community praying ground, in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, according to Lere Olayinka, his spokesman.
