Fayemi Declares Interest In Ekiti Guber Race by sojiboy(m): 10:27am On Apr 01
PRESS RELEASE

Fayemi declares interest in Ekiti Guber race

The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr kayode Fayemi, on Saturday declared interest

The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr kayode Fayemi has declared interest in contesting the july 14, governorship election in the Ekiti State.

Dr Fayemi who was Governor of Ekiti State between 2010 and 2014, told journalists in an interview at his  Ishan Ekiti country home on Saturday that he would follow due process, starting a formal notification of his intention to the leadership of the APC and  the state secretariat of the party.

This he said would be followed by a public declaration rally at a date to be announced.

“Yes, I will run for the governorship of our state. As a leader of the party, I am going to follow the due process as laid down by our party and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). This include formal notification of the leadership of the party, presentation of letter of intent at the state secretariat and a public declaration.”

Dr Fayemi said he was aware of various speculations about whether he would run for the governorship or not. He, however said that, with the last week release of guidelines and time table for the July election, the right time for him to make a formal declaration and join the race has come.

He said the state government’s controversial White Paper could not stop him from contesting the governorship election, as designed by the PDP government.

INEC has scheduled April 15th for the commencement of electioneering process for the July election.

Earlier, the Minister had addressed a mammoth crowd of party leaders from all the 177 wards of the state at the APC leaders meeting held in Ishan Ekiti, where he urged them to be united in the battle to unseat the incumbent PDP-led government.

State Chairman of the party, High Chief Jide Awe, deputy chairman, Chief (Mrs) Kemi Olaleye; State Secretary, Barrister Paul Omotosho led other state, local government and ward  executives as well as elders of the party to the quarterly meeting.

Saying that the huge number of aspirants jostling for the APC ticket was a good development for the party, Dr Fayemi urged all aspirants and their supporters to pursue their ambitions in a very decent manner, emphasising their credentials and plans to lift the state from its present state.

He said it was obvious the PDP-led government in Ekiti was bereft of ideas and does not have anything good to offer the citizens of the state, stressing that the July 14 election would be an opportunity to halt the brigandage and maladministration going on in the state.

Apparently referring to his formal presentation of letter of intent, Fayemi had told the cheering crowd of his plan in the coming weeks to visit the party secretariat to commence the process.  “I will come to the party secretariat in Ado-Ekiti and do the needful.

He said while the the new APC government in the state would restore all the local Council Development areas (LCDAs) created by the his administration, and which was cancelled by the PDP government.

“Our people clamoured for the creation of these LCDAs and they were created for them. But the PDP cancelled all of them. I can assure you all, the new APC government would restore your LCDAs because that is what the people want.

He has stolen enough money from the ministry of mines and steel development - and wants to lavish it on his guber campaign in Ekiti.

I do not like Fayose because of his fish & ponmo infrastructure but this bastard called Fayemi must be disgraced once again & kicked out of the Ekiti politics into an everlasting oblivion & obscurity.

Already a minister and wants to contest to become a governor?

He would have to resign as a minister, if he loses the race, he would be position - less.......

Only one thing would make a wise man take this decision...........


That ministerial post is not providing enough avenues to chop.........

He was a governor, now a minister. what is he looking for again

Not that he is outstanding in any of the capacity!

Is he the only one that knows how to serve Nigeria?

The constitution needs to be amended! If you have served 8years in any political capacity, you should retire for life!

We have millions of people in Nigeria equally ready to serve!

Ok

It will be utterly dumb if ekiti people voted this clown again. What has he achieved so far as a minister of solid mineral?

Fayoshe's return has been complete disaster, they should avoid same mistake.

I wonder why someone new cannot come out in ekiti except these set of greedy clowns
