I was once a driver -Fayose speaks

Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti state, went down memory lane on Thursday during the swearing-in ceremony of the new Osun state executives of the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN).
At the ceremony, which took place in Ado Ekiti, capital of the state, the governor said he raised money for his education at the Ibadan Polytechnic in Oyo state, from driving for commercial purpose.

He appealed to members of the union to shun lawlessness, saying that although he remained one of them, he would not hesitate to take action against anyone who went against the law.
“Don’t allow yourselves to be used by evil doers. You can see that some kidnappers were paraded recently. Information from them revealed that they have been using some of your members,” he said.
“I was once a driver like you. I used the money I got from driving to sponsor myself for HND at Ibadan Polytechnic. Being a driver, you can make it in life. You will become what you want to become in life through hard work.
“Don’t join evil gang for you to get rich overnight. Though I am part of you, if you breach the law, I won’t spare you.
“We should emulate this kind of occasion. This is very good. We will always identify with this kind of achievements. You are doing a good job for this country. I don’t want to be the enemies of drivers, I want to be your friend.”
