Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has claimed that the Book of Joshua 9:17 is the source of his power.
He made this revolution at the 13th convocation lecture at the Benson Idahosa University in Benin, Edo state.
The Governor said:
“Some people chose to be under the table; they don’t want to die. They are afraid. But remember that the Bible says that those who want to gain their life will lose it and those that lose their life will gain it.
“My strength lies in God Almighty. If you put me inside running water, the water will become still. If you put me the den of lions, the teeth, the claws will go inside; you can find that in the Bible too.”

Quoting Joshua 1:6-7 and nine and 17, he said: “I draw my power from those things (Bible passages). When I wake up, I lie down in my bathroom and say, “Lord, many are the afflictions of the righteous. But the Lord God will deliver him from them all.”
He advised Nigerians not to look down his presidential ambition, saying:
“I am the man to watch in this generation. So, I am controversial because I am doing things other men like me cannot do. They are scared. They are afraid; they don’t have courage.”
