Fayemi Cautions PDP Against Spreading Lies About His Govt

Published

on

Kayode FayemiThe Ekiti State Government has advised the Peoples Democratic Party in the state to focus on ways of ensuring a smooth transition on October 16 and stop churning out fabricated lies to unsuspecting members of the public.

The statement came on the heels of series of allegations against the outgoing administration of Dr. Kayode Fayemi by the PDP.

The Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mr. Tayo Ekundayo, who gave the advice in a statement in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, noted that the allegations were part of a sinister plot to cause public disaffection against Fayemi.

He cited the lies being peddled by the PDP to include allegation that Fayemi’s administration recruited over 3,000 workers into the state civil service after the June 21 governorship election in which he lost.

Ekundayo explained that 500 mathematics and some core science teachers were recruited in November 2013 based on existing vacancies while only 493 were recruited in February 2014 into key vacant positions in the state’s Civil Service.

The commissioner stressed that the allegation that landed property and other assets of the state government were being sold to political appointees and associates of Fayemi at give-away prices was absurd.

He challenged the PDP to substantiate its allegations and show proof of the alleged wrongdoings.

He said, “Do they think we have no morals like them? Everyone in Ekiti can vividly recollect how the Ikogosi warm springs was looted and every valuable thing including 50 air conditioners, 75 brand new mattresses and bed rugs, brand new bath tubs, toilet and electrical fittings were looted under the watch of the PDP government in 2005.

“The Ikogosi warm springs tourist resort which was stripped bare by these locusts have since been transformed into the number one tourist attraction in Nigeria by the Fayemi administration. Why is the PDP in a hurry? What are they afraid of?”

Ekundayo said as a transparent and accountable government, there was no way the Fayemi administration would allocate land in government-owned estates to anyone no matter how highly placed, without first following due process and strict adherence to the approved rates.
