According to eyewitnesses, little Daniel is said to have had an intelligent conversation with the Governor, that prompted his invitation to the government house.

Then fast-forward to July 2019, Governor Fayemi decided to make good his promise by instructing that little Daniel should visit.
Daniel was accompanied by his mother, Mrs Oluwatoyin Olutope and his teacher, Mrs Dupe Adeosun to the Governor’s office in Ado Ekiti for what turned into an opportunity for young Daniel to briefly act as Governor.

“Do you remember me, the man who lives on top of the hill?” Dr fayemi asked Daniel on arrival to which he responded, “yes”. He then led Daniel to his desk and lifted him into his chair, pulled him to his desk & shook his hand “Your Excellency sir”, Fayemi addressed him.

Mr Governor asked if Daniel would love to be Governor when he grows up and Daniel agreed. The governor therefore encouraged him to work hard at his studies so his dream can come true.
