Fayose would have done better in the movie industry, he's more of a Nollywood actor than a politician.

While the INEC prepared to officially announce the election result, Fayose announced on the Ekiti State Broadcasting Service (EKBS) that his choice had won the election. Olusola didn’t win. Dr. Kayode Fayemi of the APC won the election. https://t.co/vuxSbKghIG
