Ekiti Governorship: Almakura Presents Fayemi to Buhari
The winner of the last Saturday governorship primaries of the All Progressives Congress, APC in Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi has been presented to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Chairman of the Governorship Primaries for the party Tanko Almakura did the presentation of the Minister of Solid Minerals and Steel Development Dr. Kayode Fayemi as the party’s standard-bearer at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
But the Minister who is yet to tender his resignation letter to the President said he was still protected by the 1999 constitution (as amended) to remain in office 30 days before the election.
He said that Ekiti required a rescue mission, by all means, to put a stop to the alleged continuity of lack of salary, continuity of poverty, continuity of want and continuity of no direction.
He promised to restore the state to the part of the economic surplus, part of human development, accountability and transparency in government.
Fayemi emerged winner of the APC governorship primaries with over 900 votes on Saturday, closely followed by Segun Oi with over 400 votes.
