The Ekiti State Governor-elect, Mr Peter Ayo Fayose, has described the appointment of Prince Adedayo Adeyeye as Minister of State for Works by President Goodluck Jonathan as a right step in the right direction.
Fayose who stated this through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, in Abuja on Monday, said that Adeyeye who as a journalist of long standing experience and having performed as former chairman of Ekiti State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), will do well on the new position.
The Governor-Elect spoke of Adeyeye describing him as a man not given to frivolity or known for disloyalty, assured the President and the Works Minister that he(Adeyeye) will not disappoint them.
Fayose went further: ” I promise to stand by him; I enjoin Ekiti people -home and abroad – to stand by him so that he’ll succeed for Nigeria and Ekiti State, his primary constituency.
”I charge Adeyeye to have a separate telephone through which Ekiti people can reach him. He must be reachable and prepare to bear our burden as a state.
“Adeyeye should not allow politicians to come between us as politics and office come and go.”
Fayose who narrowly missed the handover ceremony in Abuja on Monday said he would give every support so that Adeyeye could do the Ekiti people proud.
Fayose thanked the President over the appointment, assuring again that Ekiti people, who are noted for loyalty and uprightness, will not disappoint him.
