Ado Ekiti - Following the confirmation of the Ekiti State ministerial nominee, Kayode Fayemi, by the Senate, Gov Ayodele Fayose has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to give Fayemi a Grade A ministry, reports Vanguard.
Fayose said Ekiti deserves a ministerial portfolio that will have direct impact on the people, not just a minister for the sake of federal character.
Fayose in a statement issued on Sunday by his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Lere Olayinka, said his position was not to favour any individual but in the collective interest of Ekiti people.

Fayose noted that Ekiti wants one of the best ministries where developmental efforts of his administration can be adequately complemented, not just a ministry that will only be of benefit to the minister and his immediate family members.
He said all Ekiti indigenes must work together for the progress of the state not minding diverse political interests, adding, that his interest, first and foremost, is the collective good of Ekiti and its people.
