Fayemi will examine Fayose's govt but not for probe play

Fayemi also told newsmen that his decision to examine the records of Fayose’s government is not with the aim of probing the incumbent governor.

The Minister for Solid Minerals Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi has debunked a report in which he allegedly blamed Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for the APC leader's 'misfortunes.'

In several tweets and a statement sent by his media aide, Olayinka Olabode, Fayemi debunked the story saying he remains loyal to Tinubu.

He further stressed that the bond between Fayemi and the APC national leader dates back to decades of cordial relationship.

In his words: "The general public is hereby urged to disregard a false report with headline : "Tinubu as a leader is responsible for his misfortunes, says Fayemi". The highly mischievous and malicious report is nothing but a tissue of lies.


"It must be stressed that Dr Kayode Fayemi never granted any interview where he made disparaging comments about the person of our highly revered leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

"Dr Fayemi subscribes to the highest moral and ethical standard of the Yoruba and as such would not speak evil or seek to demean Asiwaju Tinubu or any of our respected leaders under no circumstance whatsoever.

"For the avoidance of doubt, Dr Fayemi has always held and will continue to hold Asiwaju Tinubu in high esteem. The bond that exists between them dates back to decades of cordial relationship and no peddler of falsehood or group of blackmailers hiding under the guise of politics can put asunder," the statement read in full.
