Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has urged the Senate to cooperate with former Governor, Kayode Fayemi in order to make sure he is cleared for a ministerial position.
Despite a past, full of tirades being flung against Fayemi, the Ekiti State Governor seems to have had a change of heart as he urged that Fayemi be given a good treatment and allowed to have a seamless screening on October 13, when the screening of ministerial nominees commences.
Fayose’s spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, released a statement to this effect, quoting the governor as saying that:
“Ekiti is my number one priority, 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.”
“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.
“All former ministers from here in the time past practically really have nothing to show because we pull one another down, 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”.
