Ondo Guber: Ekiti youths condemn Fayemi's alleged donation of N700m to Akeredolu

Listen to article

The Ekiti Progressives Youths (EPY) has described the alleged donation

of over N700 million by the Minister of Solid Minerals and former

governor of the State, Dr Kayode Fayemi to support the emergence of Mr

Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) as the governorship candidate of the All

Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State as another clear display of

insensitivity to the plight of the people of Ekiti State.

Rising from its quarterly meeting in Ado-Ekiti on Tuesday, the EPY

said in a communique signed by its President and Secretary, Mr Samuel

Adekunle and Comrade Roland Adewale respectively that it was painful

that Fayemi should rather return the billions he looted from the Ekiti

State treasury instead of using the fund to fight political battle.

The communique read: “Our attention has been drawn the reported

donation of over N700 million by Dr Kayode Fayemi to ensure the

victory of Mr Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN) in the last Saturday governorship

primary election of the APC in Ondo State.
“That was the same way Fayemi donated N1.5 billion to President

Mohammadu Buhari's campaign, on which basis he was appointed minister.

“Also, it was the same way Fayemi's wife, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, in July

this year, gave two trailer loads of food items meant for Ekiti APC

supporters to Mr Akeredolu to boast his governorship bid.

“We condemn this frequent use of fund looted from our State treasury

to fund elections while Ekiti State is in debt courtesy of unwarranted

loans obtained by Fayemi's government.
“Most importantly, member of APC in Ekiti State are suffering, with

many of them unable to feed and Fayemi is there lavishing billions on

elections. This is unfair. It is clear demonstration of insensitivity

to Ekiti people and it must stop forthwith.”
