Fayose tasks Fayemi on Ekiti mineral resources exploration

By; OLADELE ADEDAYO, Ado-Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has congratulated former Governor of the State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi over his appointment as Minister of Solid Mineral Development, urging him to use his position for the commercial exploration of the abundant solid mineral resources in the State.
The governor gave the charge in a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, that President Muhammadu Buhari must have considered the need for commercial exploration of the solid minerals spread across towns and villages in Ekiti State before arriving at the choice of Fayemi as Solid Minerals Minister.
He said; “Ekiti has solid minerals like clay kaolin, cassiterite, tin ore, columbite, bauxite (Alluminium Ore), foundry sand and charconite granite.
“Even in Isan-Ekiti, Fayemi’s hometown, there is clay kaolin that can be used for abrasive, plastics, ceramics ware, pharmaceuticals,
textiles, fertilizers, white tiles and insulator wares pencils.
“Now that the Federal Government is talking about diversification of the economy, Fayemi should use his position to assist Ekiti State in harnessing its solid mineral resources for the economic benefit of the State and Nigeria.
“I therefore congratulate Fayemi for this appointment and thank President Buhari for the appointment.
“It is my prayers that God, in His infinite mercies will grant him (Fayemi) the wisdom and strength to use the new position for the betterment of Ekiti State in particular and Nigeria in general,” the governor said
