“The future of the youths already taken, restore by appointing them as ministers” – Fayose tells Tinubu.
Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has advised President Bola Tinubu to consider appointing youth as members of his ministerial cabinet.
Fayose, in a recent interview, argued that the elderly had stolen the future of young persons, and it was time to give the young the opportunity.
He urged Tinubu to appoint people below 65 and ask those under 65 and 70 years to nominate younger persons.
Fayose also disclosed that he would not accept any ministerial appointment if offered.
Asked why he worked against his party, Fayose said, “Do you expect me to work for a party that suspended my son? A party that expelled my son?
“I never worked for PDP during the last election. There’s no reason to hide that… The reality is that I worked for Asiwaju (Tinubu). He is a respectable person from the South-West. It is the turn of the South.
“The same PDP, because I said it was the turn of the South, removed my son, suspended my son, expelled my son, suspended me. For a man that has suffered tremendously for PDP?”
