Former MEDA DG, Otunba Kayode Fasae Appears Before Ekiti House For Screening

Earlier today, July 5th, 2023, Otunba Kayode Fasae (commissioner nominee) appeared before the Ekiti State House of Assembly to be screened by members of parliament, following his inclusion on the list of prospective commissioners for the Land of Honor and integrity.

The former Director General of the Ekiti State Microfinance and Enterprises Development Agency was the last nominee on the list for today to appear before the house, and was quizzed by members of parliament on issues bordering on finances, banking, and synergy with the legislative arm.

While answering questions, Otunba Fasae popularly addressed as JIMLAS brilliantly articulated his views on issues, and in doing so, advocated for agency banking to bring banking services closer to the people at the local government levels in order to decongest the banking system in the state capital. This, he stated, would in no small way, lead to an increased efficiency of ATM Services, as well as other banking services in the state, and at the grassroots.

On the issue of synergy, Otunba Kayode Fasae assured honorable members of the house of his commitment to the principle of separation of powers, and unity of government. He promised that he would remain accountable to the Ekiti people through the Ekiti State House of Assembly at all times if confirmed as a commissioner.

At the end of the session, the honorable commissioner nominee took a bow and exited the hallowed chambers in company of members of the OKF movement, friends and well wishers from all over the state.

It is expected that the official appointment will be made in the coming weeks to set the ball rolling.
