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
“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.”
