Shut up, you have no moral rights to speak on governance in Ekiti, Fayose tells APC

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose,  has said the All Progressives

Congress (APC) as a party lacked moral rights to criticise his

government policies, having ran the State aground in its four years of

Kayode Fayemi’s reign.
Fayose, who reacted to the APC’s criticism of his stomach

infrastructure policy through his Special Assistant on Public

Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said “it is preferable to

give the people what to eat than spending billions of borrowed fund to

build hilltop government house meant for just one family as done by

the APC government.”
The governor asked the APC the benefits derivable from the pavilion,

government house, civic centre and other white elephant projects that

the party used borrowed fund to execute.
He said; “Here is a party that used borrowed fund to plant flowers in

Ado Ekiti and none of the flowers can be seen anywhere in the State

capital talking about our government’s policies not being

developmental.
“Oba Adejugbe General Hospital, Ado Ekiti was almost completed before

Fayemi assumed office. That hospital was not completed throughout the

four years of APC government. They even went to the criminal and

ridiculous level of commissioning the hospital with its inside yet to

be painted and no single bed provided.
“APC government preferred civic centre, state pavilion, flowers and

new government house to a hospital project. Their government scrapped

a full-fledged University of Science and Technology (USTI), Ifaki

Ekiti, preferring to lavish borrowed fund on flowers planting.

“Today, Ekiti State is struggling to meet its financial obligations to

the people because of the senseless and wasteful financial management

of the State by the APC government, with billions of naira loans left

unpaid. Yet, they carry themselves around shamelessly such that they

don’t know that Ekiti people hate them with a passion.

“However, despite the huge debt burden that they left behind, we have

remained faithful to our promises to the people. We have paid workers

salaries as at when due, except April salary that we started paying

last week Friday.”
