The Ekiti state governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has changed every leader in the state to join hands to develop the state irrespective of their political affiliation.
Fayose gave the charge at the coronation ceremony of the Onisan of Isan-Ekiti on Saturday.
The governor noted that he was at the ceremony to honour the foremost traditional ruler and to also join a former governor of the state , who is also the son of the soil Dr Kayode Fayemi to celebrate the monarch.
Mr Fayose said that he was very careful in the selection process to ensure that the right person emerged, noting that ascending the throne was not as important as the difference made in the lives of the people.
The governor implored the new monarch to ensure that justice reign supreme during his reign, charging that he should work for the progress and unity of the community.
He congratulated the sons and daughters of Isan-Ekiti for witnessing the great occasion.
Earlier, the Executive chairman of Oye Local government Hon. Tayo Oludare noted that the rowdy welcome given to Governor Fayose at Isan-Ekiti attested to the ever growing influence of the governor across the state.
