NO ONE CAN TAKE GLORY FOR ONI’S ACHIEVEMENTS - AIDE
Ekiti State former Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation,
Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun has said that it will be difficult for the
State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to take glory for the over 2,000
projects completed by the Engr. Segun Oni-led administration, noting
that; “Ekiti people cannot be deceived by anyone because they are no
Olatunbosun, in a statement made available to journalists today, said
even though most of the already completed projects were yet to be
commissioned, any attempt by the Fayemi-led government to commission
or advertise them as part of its achievements would attract
condemnations from Ekiti people because they know when the projects
“We are aware that supporters of our party, the Peoples Democratic
Party (PDP) are apprehensive over the possibility of the present
government in Ekiti State embarking on the commissioning of projects
already completed by the immediate past government but I am sure
Fayemi, himself won't do such a thing.
“Fayemi knows that Ekiti people cannot be fooled and I can assure that
the moment he (Fayemi) makes any attempt to advertise any of the
projects initiated and completed by the Oni-led government, the people
“For instance, Ekiti people know who completed the 132/33KVA power
station in Ado-Ekiti, which was initiated 34 years ago. The people
know when new blocks of classrooms, including storey buildings were
constructed in their schools. They know who initiated the construction
of the new House of Assembly Complex, Deputy Governor's Office and
Secretariat buildings which are almost completed.
“Most importantly, the people know when the 26km
Ijero-Ikoro-Ajindo-Okemesi road, 16 km Isinbode-Iro-Federal-Iro-Irun
road, which links Iro-Ekiti to other towns in the State, 29.1 km Oke
Ayedun –Ipao – Oke Ako – Irele road, 10 km Ita-Awure – Ido-Ile road,
20.1km Ido-Otun-Kwara Border, 10.5 Ita-Ido – Ido-Ile, 13.2km
Otun-Erinmope-Kwara Border, 4.2km Orin-Ido-Orin Farm Settlement,
32.1km Emure-Supare, 5.9km Egbe-Imesi, 6.0km Igbara-Odo – Ibuji,
17.0km Omuo-Oke – Omuo-Odo – Itapaji Dam, 29.8km Agbado-Ode-Omuo, 10km
Omuo-Eda Ile, 4.6km Ifaki-Orin-Ora, 21.9km Ikogosi-Ipole Iloro-Efon
Alaaye, 13.2km Emure-Eporo, 9.6km Iludun-Eda Oniyo-Obo Ayegunle
Boundary, 4.2km Ifaki township, 2km Ipoti township and 2km Omuo
township roads, among other roads were constructed.
“Therefore, any attempt by Fayemi to go on with the planned
commissioning of projects not initiated and completed by his
government or abandoning any of the ongoing projects will further
expose his hypocrisy,” Olatunbosun said.
While also castigating the governor for offering to assist the Action
Congress of Nigeria (ACN) ongoing registration exercise with
government fund, Olatunbosun said; “I don't think that he meant what
he said because government fund cannot be used for ACN registration.
Fayemi was quoted to have said while registering as ACN member that
whatever the party needed in terms of money for the registration would
be supported by the government.
But Olatunbosun, who condemned the statement said Ekiti people would
resist any attempt to lavish meant for developmental projects in the
State on ACN membership registration.
