President Muhammmadu Buhari Wednesday joined Ministers and other top government officials to bid the former Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Kayode Fayemi farewell.
Fayemi, you will recall, recently quit the cabinet to contest the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti State.
The valedictory session which preceded the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting, provided an opportunity for his former colleagues to appraise his contributions while in office.
Buhari in his assessment, described Fayemi as man of sound intellect whose contributions helped the administration achieve progress, especially in the solid minerals sector.
President Buhari again canvassed for voter education so that people would get the Permanent Voters Card to elect candidates of their choice at all levels.
Buhari said but for technology, especially with the introduction of PVCs and card readers, he would have been rigged out of the 2015 presidential election.
Ministers, in their remarks, unanimously expressed belief that Fayemi was going to rescue Ekiti from the People’s Democratic Party.
Fayemi thanked the president for giving him the opportunity to serve and his colleagues, for their support and love.
