Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose, has commended the Senate for approving the nomination of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
In a statement in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the governor said the senators had shown that national interests must be placed above party and parochial interests.
“The senators have shown the whole world that for our nation to progress, we must not allow ourselves to be misled by sentiments. The APC goons who are engaged in needless propaganda about a non issue of a audio tape have been put to shame.
“The matter is in court, nobody has been indicted and yet some people are bent on sabotaging the chances of a former member of the Senate, who had been previously screened and cleared by them in the past.
“I rejoice with Senator Obanikoro for in the end, the truth has prevailed over sheer propaganda and I wish him the best in his service to our fatherland,” he said.
