Former Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi is currently being screened by the Nigerian Senate following his nomination for a ministerial position by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Fayemi is the second nominee out of 10 expected to undergo screening by the upper legislative chamber today, October 13, 2015.

Here are 10 important things he said:

  1. “Poverty is not inevitable, we have a lot of countries like China that has lifted its people from poverty”

  2. “Alternation of Power is the best way to deepen democracy; Not perpetuation of Power.”

  3. “On Foreign Policy, We must balance our interest btw the West and the BRICS Countries.”

  4. “Buhari is doing a lot on Foreign Policy, recognising that our neighbours are our first call of interest.”

  5. “On Foreign Policy; right now our domestic agenda does not really drive our Foreign Policy.”

  6. “We need to make our Public Schools attractive and all this boils down to enrolment.”

  7. “We have a problem of enrolment. We need to do something about our Curriculum and Teacher Quality.”

  8. “We have not been able to do well in the Technical and Vocational part of our Educational Sector.”

  9. “I didn't not buy a N50m bed, I challenge anyone who has a N1.5m invoice for a bed to bring it forward. The Govt House is probably the cheapest Govt House in Nigeria. I did it for Ekiti State & not for myself.”

  10. “Every state borrows, even the United State we look up to is the most indebted country in the world.”

Is the Senate too slow with confirmation of ministers?»
