The governor said 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 exploitation of the solid minerals spread across towns and villages in Ekiti State before arriving at the choice of Fayemi as solid minerals minister.

“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, ceramic wares, 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.
