The anti-Fakorede group made up of members and leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) claim that Fakorede’s father defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and worked against the success of the PDP at the 2019 elections.
They said Fakorede’s nomination does not fit into the zoning arrangement in the state.
But another group, comprising students and representatives of student association bodies, also surfaced at the assembly in support of the nomination.
Mr Fakorede, in a post on social media on Friday, said that the issues raised by the protesters would be settled, calling them his leaders.
“And as regards what happened within the Assembly Complex, just before my screening and confirmation, we are going to settle it — no tension whatsoever. They are my leaders, fathers and mothers; we are going home to resolve everything, amicably,” he said.
Fakorede said he became emotional when he stood before the lawmakers “majority of whom are in their youthful ages.”
He also thanked the governor, Seyi Makinde, for the opportunity to be part of his cabinet.
“With your support, we are going to hit the ground running when we assume office,” he said.
