There are many Nigerians who still do not agree that President Buhari has failed Nigerians and as expected, members of his cabinet are among.

Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, on Thursday urged Nigerians not to use the current fuel scarcity to rate the President.

“What we are witnessing is just a normal curve in the life of any administration.

“We will get over it and move on, but largely President has not disappointed Nigerians,” he said.

Fayemi was addressing newsmen at his Isan-Ekiti country home shortly after hosting APC leaders from across the state.

He described the attempt being made by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to reclaim power in 2019 as a plot to continue to loot the country.

But he was sure Nigerians would ensure that PDP didn’t return to power because of the high level of looting it perpetrated while in the saddle.

He went on to tackle the intrigues of Ekiti politics where he has been a big player.

The minister described the panel of enquiry inaugurated by Gov. Ayo Fayose to probe his administration as a kangaroo, claiming that it was an attempt to smear his reputation.

“Fayose’s stock in trade is lying against someone to score political gains.

“They started with the probe of N852 million UBEC fund and when they knew they could not go far, they started concocting lies and said I looted N17 billion.

“Let us wait and see who will go to jail between Fayose and I.

“I have been out of office and I am still moving free, but I am sure he won’t be able to walk free on the streets after losing immunity because of the way he ran the state aground.”
