Oct 19, 2014 – Pictures: Check Out The 1965 Mercedes Benz 230SL Convertible Car Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose Used For Swearing In Ceremony

Pictured above is a very rare Mercedes Benz convertible car used by Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose during his inauguration ceremony on Thursday.

As old as it looks, this wonder wheels costs a whopping N7.4million to buy, shipping and custom duty excluded.

The custom made car was brought into Nigeria late last month from the United States of America.

Sources in the know claimed Fayose used the vintage car in order to feel among the poor people in Ekiti state.

We learnt the rare car will be his official car for the first month in office.

Before moving into the State House, Fayose invited Imams, Prophets, Pastors and juju men to perform spiritual cleansing after which he allowed Ekiti people to come in freely.

Fayose’s ‘Man of the People’ attitude gave him victory over Fayemi but will this improve the poor living condition in some parts of the state???? I guess time will tell.

  1. Why is Fayose trying “so hard” to befriend the people of Ekiti state? Only time will judge if he (Fayose) can sustain these short term cynical populist policies.

    The first move from him was the sharing of rice and groundnut oil to the people of Ekiti state, just before the election, the second move was to invite the public to come and lounge in the Ekiti state house.
    The latest news is that- he has spent a whopping #7.4 million naira on a car in order to be seen as a friend of the people.

    All these are short term cheap publicity stunt .You only need to look at the policies of the governors that mean well for the people .Governors like Fashola, of Lagos state. People like him don’t need to buy car nor those he need to share rice and groundnut oil to appease the people.
    This man (Fashola) and his team successfully contained the spread of EBOLA virus in Lagos state, and this has earned him international commendation.

    Personally, I think these are the programmes and policies; Fayose needs to put in place not all these cheap populist policies he is currently embarking upon.

  2. This car was not shipped from America but bought locally in Nigeria & refurbished. The engine in the car is not that of a mercedes but a nissan laurel engine. This is from a reliable source.It was bought somewhere in ogun state, to be precised, somewhere in Remo. It’s not a convertible but an SL saloon. It was formerly owned by one chief from ode Remo who is late. Ayo Fayose just bought it to deceive the Ekitis.. Anyone who drives a car like this in western countries must be very rich. It is called vintage car.

    Ayo Fayose is a deceiver.

  3. Open up of government house for the masses is that what Ekiti people needs or old time car when Nigerians well become sincere for themselves its unfortunate only in nigeria we can see such occurrences.

  4. Naijagist abeg na this car wey he bought 7.4m abi dis one na just a mere picture ? If that was de case he should have go 4 keke na pepe
