56th Birthday: Fayose shares cake, cash on Ado-Ekiti streets (Photos)

In his usual unconventional approach to governance and continuation of his “stomach infrastructure” policy, Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday took to some streets in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital where he shared his 56th birthday cake and cash with the residents.
As he doled out the cash, market women and passers-by screamed and joined him to mark the event.
Fayose asked his well-wishers to line up in an orderly manner and “sliced and shared the cake amongst them with a little cash for coke to drive it down,” his me­dia aide, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said.

In a statement, he issued, Olayinka quoted the governor as saying that “it is only right for me to give back to the same peo­ple who voted me into office. It is a show of love to my people; we can’t sit in the Government House and enjoy the comfort of the of­fice without remembering them. I got a lot of gifts on my birthday, cakes, yam tubers, cows, rice and so on. How many can I eat? How many clothes can I wear at a time?
“It is just normal and good for me to go back to the streets and give it back to the people that put me in the Government House. This is my style; this is me natu­rally, just that this time around it is more elaborate moving from one junction to the other to en­sure about 500 persons per junc­tion get something small on my birthday.

“The more people you can touch, the better for your life to­day and tomorrow. These are the sets of people that will never walk into the Government House ask­ing for contracts or help. They will not even be allowed to get in unless the governor leaves the comfort of his office to meet with them wherever they are and that is exactly what I am doing,” he said.
