Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has appointed a 72-year-old illiterate, Pa Olatunde Afolayan, as the caretaker chairman of Moba Local Government Area.
He also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to remove Mrs. Amina Zakari as the Acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The governor, who stated this during the inauguration of Boards, Commissions and Governing Councils in the state, said it was only God that saved him from the failed impeachment plot.
Mrs. Omolara Ayeni and Mr. Owolabi Ajewole were also sworn in as chairmen of Ikole and Ijero local government areas, following the resignation of those earlier appointed by the governor.
Stating that illiterates were important members of the society, Fayose said many of the champions of democracy in Nigeria depended on them to survive during electioneering.
He said, “Some of us used them to get to positions and forget these people. In my government, whether you are educated or not, you will get something. The vote of a professor and an illiterate is the same. So, under my administration, those who are not educated can rise to any level they want.”
Afolayan, who said he would have been grateful if the governor had made him a ward chairman, commended him for the gesture, promising to surpass the records left behind by his predecessors.
He said, “I had never gone to school for a day, but that does not diminish my intelligence. I may not be educated or certificated, but I have brain and experience to pilot the affairs of the council.”
