No doubt, Ayodele Peter Fayose still has the 'street credibility' and his popularity will be a determinant to the outcome of the election. His anointed candidate, Otunba Bisi Kolawole, a former member of the Ekiti House of Assembly will have to rely on his popularity and political sagacity if he wins the People's Democratic Party primary election next year.

Fayose, the originator of 'Stomach Infrastructure' is close to the masses. When he was the Governor of the state, he wined and dined with the market women, artisans the needy and the less-privileged in the society. The masses are always keen to hear him speak and they do obey him when he gives an order.
