The former Governor of Ekiti State and ex-chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has vowed that he won't beg President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for appointment but he will always make himself available for anything that will make his administration a successful one.
Dr. Kayode Fayemi said, in an intervention, the Presidency and the party should devise a means of getting holistic feedback from the public who cast their votes for him. He also charged the National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to take up the responsibility and ensure President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is connected firmly to the citizens.
He said, “I worked for the party and the president, and don’t forget that I wanted to be president too. So walking away from governance or politics is not going to happen. When I was stepping down, I made some remarks that I have known President Tinubu for over three decades and he knows that in or out of office, I will always be there to support his government. But I am not one of those who will make unsolicited calls on him. If he calls for me, I’ll answer the call.
“We saw at COP28 and some point, he pulled me aside to discuss some things, particularly our challenges in Ondo, knowing my relationship with the Governor and I gave him my perspectives and advice. So, I’ll always be here to offer services from the background. His presidency is our collective responsibility in APC.”
”I am a foundation member of the APC. For me, all of us owe our president and the party a duty to keep him fully abreast of what he may not be getting inside the villa, and the chairman of the party has that as his number one responsibility because what we want is a president that meets the yearnings of the citizens, who have put him in office. After all, if he doesn’t do it, it diminishes all of us.”
Fayemi revealed that he would soon unveil his policy institute, “basically to provide emerging leaders with the tools to engage in policy-making, policy management, and policy implementation, particularly on a continental basis. You’d soon hear more about that.”
