All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for nominating former Governor
Kayode Fayemi as a member of the Federal Executive Council.
APC said by that gesture, the president had sent a signal that
hard work and vision would not be overlooked in the reward system of his administration.
The Publicity Secretary, Mr. Taiwo Olatunbosun, in a statement
yesterday in Ado-Ekiti, said Buhari’s gesture was also a
testimony to the life of honour and devotion to duty which marks Fayemi as a dependable and forthright compatriot, who is always eager to lend himself to the patriotic service of the nation.
The APC spokesman assured the president that he had made a right choice and could always count on Fayemi as a dependable lieutenant, always eager to advance the course of democracy and good governance which is the hallmark of the president’s change agenda, to lift the country out of poverty and restore hope among Nigerians.
“Fayemi fits into the change agenda espoused by President Buhari. In four years as the governor of Ekiti State, he raised the bar of good governance and posted benefits of democratic representative governance to the level never witnessed in the state since its creation.
“We are rest assured that he will bring the same spirit in
steering the wheels of the change agenda to the satisfaction of the president and to the applause of Nigerians,” Olatunbosun said.
He urged those allegedly nursing schemes to scuttle his screening to have a change of heart, as Fayemi was a rare breed who had set an international benchmark that could not be rubbished by local discontent fueled by political prejudices.
“Fayemi is an international scholar whose services are needed in the four corners of the world. His pedigree and practical demonstration of his abilities had been tested in many life-lifting programmes and infrastructure development schemes in Ekiti State. Besides, this is his record of transparency and accountability in Ekiti State, which we believe is what propelled President Buhari to pick him as minister.’’
