Fayemi must explain his alleged N1bn donation to Akeredolu’s campaign – Ekiti Youths
The Ekiti Progressives Youths (EPY) has demanded an explanation from
the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi over his
alleged contribution of N1 billion campaign fund of the Ondo State
Governor-elect, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
Rising from its meeting in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday, the EPY said in a
communique signed by its President and Secretary, Mr Samuel Adekunle
and Comrade Roland Adewale that it was alarmed that Dr Fayemi, who
left Ekiti State in debt could donate N1 billion to the All
Progressives Congress (APC) governorship election campaign in Ondo
The youths said it was strange that Fayemi could donate N1.5 billion
to the APC presidential election campaign and another N1 billion to
governorship election campaign within two years when youths, who are
members of his party are walloping in abject poverty.
They said it was wicked for Fayemi to have used fund looted from Ekiti
State to purchase appointment as Secretary to the Government of Ondo
State for his wife, Erelu Bisi Fayemi.
The EPY noted that the N1 billion allegedly wasted in Ondo State by
Fayemi would have empowered 10,000 youths in Ekiti State at N100, 000
each and that would have gone a long way to alleviate the sufferings
of the youths, especially those in the APC.
Ekiti youths should recall also that Fayemi allegedly donated N1.5
billion to the campaign fund of President Mohammadu Buhari, which many
believed qualified him for the ministerial appointment that he got.
It should also be recalled that two out of the four trailers of rice
and other food items donated to the Ekiti State APC by Dangote
Foundation, were diverted to Ondo State and handed to Akeredolu by
Now, Fayemi has used another N1 billion to buy SSG appointment for his
wife in Ondo State. This is the height of wickedness and we, the
youths of Ekiti State are waiting for Fayemi to declare his ambition
to contest the 2018 governorship election.
