Why Fayemi Did Not Attend 2nd Session Of APC South-West Leaders’ Meeting

Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has given reason for his absence at the second session of the meeting with leaders of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-West.

The Minister also denied media reports that he stormed out of a meeting with APC leader Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Abuja on Tuesday.

The Minister said in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday that contrary to misleading media reports and social media posts purporting that he walked out of the meeting, he only left the venue, like other attendees, at the end of the meeting.


The Minister in the statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Yinka Oyebode, said there was no basis for him to storm out of the meeting which was called by the leaders to proffer way forward for the party, in the face of the rescheduled Ekiti governorship primary.

The Minister, however, said he could not make the second part of the meeting when it reconvened later in the evening, having earlier taken permission from the leaders to attend another meeting.

“It is thus worrisome and highly embarrassing reading reports of purported ‘walk out’ on our leaders when nothing like that actually took place.

“We implore well-meaning members of the society and members of our great party to disregard the misleading reports,” the statement added.
