Concise News had reported that Fayemi emerged chairman of the NGF on Wednesday through a consensus after he was nominated by Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State.
In a statement on his Twitter handle on Thursday, Fayose said Fayemi’s emergence as NGF Chairman was well deserved to him and the people of Ekiti.
He said that “Politics will come and go, but Ekiti State will remain eternal”.
I congratulate Gov Kayode Fayemi on his appointment and elevation as Chairman of the Nigeria Governors' Forum (NGF). It is well deserved for you and the entire people of Ekiti. Politics will come and go, but Ekiti State will remain eternal.
Once again, you have my best wishes.
