Fayemi Is Looting Ekiti Treasury – Adeyeye Insists
Afenifere Chieftain and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State has insisted that the State Governor, Kayode Fayemi was looting the State treasury through questionable bank loans and bond, saying; “Only a kleptomaniac government would list projects it claimed to have completed and commissioned in 2012 as part of projects that it intends to finance with a N5 billion in 2014.”
Adeyeye, who said he was not surprised that agents of the governor resorted to abusing his person instead of addressing issues, said; “Ekiti people have seen the difference between people who trade in facts and figures and Fayemi's government, whose stock in trade is falsehood and character assassination.”
Speaking through the Director General of Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM), Hon. Bisi Kolawole, Adeyeye said it was an undisputable fact that the State Government posted on its website on October 17, 2012 that; "After 21 years of its dormancy, Ire Burnt Brick industry in Ire-Ekiti, was on Wednesday finally resuscitated and opened for operations. The State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi who performed the official commissioning of the industry, described the revival as a promise kept."
Adeyeye said Photograph of the project commissioning was posted on the website with "ekitistate.gov.ng/2012/10/21-years-after-ire-burnt-brick-factory-resurrects/" as link and Nigerians are free to open the link.
"Isn't it then fraudulent that the same Fayemi, who commissioned Ire Burnt Bricks Ltd on October 17, 2012, published pictures of the commissioning and also posted its video on YouTube is now saying N966.89 million out of the N5 billion bond will be spent to resuscitate Ire Burnt Bricks Ltd?
"Also, it was reported in the newspapers on December 5, 2011 that the State Government awarded 13 road projects at N12 billion. In the report, Ilawe-Igbara Odo-Ibuji road (17km) was awarded at N894,698,043.75 while Ikole-Ijesa Isu-Iluomoba road (23km) was awarded N1,139,155,368.75
"On December 7, 2012, video of commissioning of Ilawe-Igbara Odo-Ibuji road was uploaded on YouTube. It was also posted on Ekiti State Government website the same day, where the road was listed among roads already completed. The Ikole-Ijesa Isu-Iluomoba road was listed among roads at advance stage of completion.
"Now, the simply questions we are asking Fayemi and his men are; is it the same Ilawe-Igbara Odo-Ibuji and Ikole-Ijesa Isu-Iluomoba roads that they said was completed in 2012 that they want to spend N1.9 billion from the N5 billion bond on in 2014?
"Is it the same Ire Burnt Bricks Ltd, Ire-Ekiti that Fayemi commissioned on October 17, 2012 and posted video of the resuscitated industry on YouTube that he wants to spend N966.89 million on in 2014?
"Again, we ask; of what economic benefit is a State Pavilion to the people of Ekiti State that N1.58 billion borrowed fund will be expended on it?
"These are simply questions that Fayemi and his kleptomaniac government must answer and Ekiti people, whose funds they are looting with reackless abandon deserve explanations."

2014: Ekiti will be liberated from deceitful government - Adeyeye
Afenifere Chieftain and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant in Ekiti State, Prince Dayo Adeyeye has urged Ekiti people not to despair but keep hope alive in the New Year, describing year 2014 as the year God will put in place a government that will liberate the State from “governance by deceit.”
Adeyeye, in his New Year message to the people of the State, said he was committed to serving the people and making life more meaningful for the downtrodden, promising that he would continue to offer selfless services to the State.
The governorship aspirant, who is known as the Prince of Hope said; “I wish to congratulate the entire people of Ekiti State for this brand new year that God has made it possible for us to see.
“I also wish to urge our people, especially supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and our campaign organisation; Prince Adedayo Adeyeye Movement (PAAM) to remain calm, focussed and keep hope alive in the New Year, because I am confident that the will of God will prevail on our dear State, Ekiti.
“Our people should remain hopeful because even in the face of pilfering of our collective wealth, plunging of the State into unnecessary debt and tyrannical governance, where supposed opponents of the government are hacked down, harassed, intimidated and attacked, there is assurance that like all the afflictions of the Israelites, this governance by deceit will soon pass away.”
While calling on Nigerians to remain faithful and supportive of the Dr Goodluck Jonathan-led federal government, the former governor said; “In spite of all our challenges as a nation, there is hope and assurance that our challenges are not insurmountable, and with President Jonathan's Transformation Agenda, it is sure that all those issues that give us concerns as a people will fizzle out this New Year.”
