Fayemi-and-FayoseGovernor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has urged senators representing the state in the Senate to ensure that his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who was nominated as a minister by President Muhammadu Buhari, has a hitch-free screening exercise.

The screening of 21 ministerial nominees unveiled by Senate President Bukola Saraki during plenary on Tuesday, is to commence on October 13.

Fayose’s call on the state senators to support Fayemi’s confirmation as a minister is novel considering the fact that the ex-governor belongs to the All Progressives Congress while the incumbent and the senators all belong to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Speaking when he received student leaders of Ekiti origin at the conference hall of the governor’s office on Wednesday, Gov. Fayose said the overall interest of the state must always come first before personal interest.

“Ekiti is my number one priority”, he said. “I called all the house of reps and senators that went to Abuja from here, some people petitioned the national assembly, stating how Fayemi sunk Ekiti into heavy debt, I have told the members not to do that”.

According to him, “It is God that judge people, not we. You must support him there. If a child would die, it shouldn’t be from the mother. They should not go to the house and oppose Kayode Fayemi, No, they must never do that. An Ekiti man is an Ekiti man. I appeal to everybody, you must support him”.

Fayose observed that all former ministers from the state had nothing to show for their time in the Federal Executive Council because of lack of support from their home base, adding such must not be allowed to continue, hence, the need to support Fayemi’s nomination by all and sundry.

“All former ministers from here in the time past practically really have nothing to show because we pull one another down. We must not pull them down. If they are behaving like that, we must live a better life. Promotion does not come from man but from God Almighty”, he said.
