Governor of Ekiti state Ayodele Fayose distributed rams to Muslim faithfuls and urged them to pray for peace and unity of the country. He made this request after he monitored the distribution of rams to Muslim leaders at the Government House in Ado Ekiti Sunday. He said:
"I do this because it's part of the Cardinals of the Islamic religion and as a leader, the little I am able to do, I should be seen to be doing so. "I might not be able to buy ram for everybody, I can't give ram to everyone but my people must still see the love in me trying my best to at least identify with everybody".
