2023: Fayemi reveals when he will make his ambition known

Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Wednesday, spoke on his next political journey after finishing his tenure as Governor.

Clearing the air on his possible next move, he added that  the season of Ramadan and the lent period were sacred for political activities

He made this remark in  Gombe State, where he was received at the Government House by Governor Muhammadu Yahaya.

He urged his teeming  supporters to wait till when the period of Ramadan and lent is over before he opens up on his next move.

He said, “For us, in Christendom, this is the period of lent and for people of the Muslim faith, this is Ramadan. Very rarely do the two come together. So this is a period that requires sober reflection.

“The period is of deep thinking and should not be a period of the political declaration. Whether I’m going to run or not is a matter of conjecture. What I will appeal to you to do is to wait until after this spiritual season. I think it will be disrespectful to start playing those politics.”

The Governor added that their duty as governors was to ensure that they cooperated with the Federal Government to ensure citizens enjoy the dividends of democracy.

He lamented that some criminals ate attempting to frustrate the government and sabotage oil production..

Fayemi said, “There are both internal and external challenges, internal in the way and manner the volume of our oil production has gone down due to some deliberate attempt on the part of criminals to frustrate the national efforts.

“In ensuring that we maximise production at a time when the price of oil is very attractive in the international. We have not been able to take advantage due to the limited production.

“On the other hand, the war going on in Ukraine has affected food prices because we get some of the food items particularly wheat from Ukraine. So, the production of bread and other staple have suffered tremendously and inflation has affected things.

“The President is working on all while we as governors have to collaborate with him to improve the economy because things are not easy for ordinary Nigerians and all of us are feeling the pains of the moment. We owe it a duty to meet the demand of our office which is security and welfare.”
