Why I apologised — Fayemi Empty Why I apologised — Fayemi

Dr. Kayode Fayemi has given reasons for the apology he
rendered following his emergence as the candidate of the
APC even as he yesterday dismissed the indictment raised
against him by the Ekiti State Government as
He spoke following his presentation to President
Muhammadu Buhari as the candidate of the party for the
election by the chairman of the APC Gubernatorial Primaries
Committee, Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarwa State.
Fayemi disclosed on the occasion that he would resign his
position as a minister within one week.
On the apology rendered immediately after his emergence, he

then the man we are talking about is an Alawada like we say
in Yorubaland, so that is not surprising.”
On the date of his resignation from the cabinet, he said:
“There is still a lot of work to do. The constitution again is
very clear, what the constitution says in Section 182 is that I
must leave the cabinet at least 30 days before the General
“Well, I am the candidate of our party, and I am also the
minister of the Federal Republic at least for the next one
week. So, for the next one week, I am the minister of mines
and steel.”
