Former Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Sikiru Tae Lawal has hailed the

State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose for restoring his privileges and those

of his former boss, Chief Segun Oni, describing Governor Fayose as a

leader with uncommon love for Ekiti and its people.

Dr Lawal, in a statement issued today, on behalf of members of the State

Executive Council that served under the Segun Oni's administration, said

the governor had further demonstrated that he was on a mission to restore

all the lost glories of Ekiti State.
The former deputy governor described the removal of Oni's photograph from

the Governor's office and refusal to accord him (Oni) with the privileges

of a former governor by the immediate past governor, Kayode Fayemi as

“vendetta taken too far.”
He said despite that himself and Oni wrote a letter dated January 16, 2014

to Fayemi, demanding for their entitlements as former governor and deputy

governor in line with the Ekiti State Pension Law 2006, Fayemi still

refused to restore their privileges.
“We wrote a letter on January 16, 2014, demanding for the performance of

the obligations of the State Government imposed under the Pension Law 2006

with regards to our entitlements, but Fayemi refused. Even when Oni joined

the All Progressives Congress (APC) and campaigned for Fayemi, his

pictures that they removed from the lobby and Exco Chamber of the

Governor's Office were not returned.
“Therefore, for Governor Fayose, who was worked against by Oni to have

been magnanimous to the level of restoring our privileges that Fayemi

wickedly denied us of, I can't but be grateful to him.

“He is living to his promises of governing Ekiti with the fear of God and

love for the State and its people, and I am thanking the governor on

behalf of those who served under the Segun Oni's government.”
