Kayode Fayemi, Ekiti governor and presidential hopeful, says he is one of the few Nigerians with experience on conflict resolution.


Femi Ige, spokesman of the Fayemi campaign organisation, quoted the hopeful as saying this when he met with All Progressives Congress (APC) delegates in Kaduna on Thursday.


The governor said he consulted for the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo when it was seeking to stop the wars in Sierra Leone and Liberia.


“I’m one of the few Nigerians with real time experience in resolving wars,” he said.


“I consulted for Nigeria under President Olusegun Obasanjo, I was involved in the resolution of the wars in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda and bringing the Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka to the negotiation table.


“Besides that real time experience in war resolution , I have a Doctorate Degree in War Studies. If I can bring peace to other lands, why not my own country. Nigeria is facing a war situation that we can’t afford to put a neophyte in power, the repercussions are too ghastly to contemplate.


“I will spare no effort to ensure that we win the fight that must be fought with tenacity against insecurity, banditry, unemployment, poverty, inequality, threats of national disintegration, and lawlessness.


“To this end, working with other key leaders of the party, a detailed blueprint that has been developed with corresponding timelines of implementation will be employed to guide the speedy and accelerated retooling of key institutions of state, including the armed forces, the police service and the civil service.”


Fayemi said he is committed to creating wealth and employment for Nigerians if elected president.


“I am especially committed to the facilitation of wealth and employment creation by and for our people, the expansion of our national social security and skills acquisition policies to enhance human development, the wholesale revamp of our national educational system to ensure it is fit for purpose, and the intensive fostering of measures aimed at expanding inclusivity for those who are objectively marginalized in the polity,” he said.


“We owe it to ourselves and our people to ensure that our women, the youth, and people living with disability who represent some of our greatest national assets are judiciously developed.”
