Fayemi Denies Ownership Of Foreign Varsity, Tuition Fee Increment In EKSU

Published

on

fayemiThe Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has described as untrue the rumours making the rounds that he owns a university in Ghana and that he has increased tuition at the Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti.

The governor made this known at an interview with journalists.

Fayemi attributed the false report to the handiwork of the opposition.

“I don’t have a university anywhere in the world and I don’t even intend to have one. Instead I am picking up a lecturing job at EKSU come next session.

“My name is important to me. I am a Catholic and as someone who takes the Holy Communion, I won’t do anything that will desecrate this state and the Catholic Church”, he said.

Speaking further on the purported claim that government had increased tuition fees in EKSU, the Governor said the rumour is a clear ignorance on the part of the peddlers who do not know that the school management does not review fees in the middle of an academic session.

Fayemi added that rather than increase school fee, the university management was planning a downward review of tuition in some departments.

On the alleged non-payment of pension and gratuity, the Governor said the non-completion of some processes by some pensioners was responsible for the delay in payment of gratuity to some category of pensioners.

He said government does not owe pension but instead, we have increased pension by six per cent in order to help the pensioners meet the economic realities of the present time.

    Fashola: If We Keep Our Promises, APC Will Retain Power In 2023Babatunde Fashola

Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola has expressed optimism that Nigerians will still vote the All Progressives Congress (APC) back to power in 2023.

Fashola, however, added that the only thing that can make Nigerians not to vote for the APC is if the party fails to fulfill its campaign promises to them.

The Minister made this remark while speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja.

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
