Fayemi Comes ‘Hard’ On Fayose, As Fayose Comes ‘Harder’, Tells Him, You Left Nothing But A Rotten Legacy
After Former Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi in an interview with some National Newspapers accused the present Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose of destroying the legacies he left behind, the no nonsense Governor has deemed it fit to reply him almost instantly telling him he left no legacy behind, but instead he left huge debts and legacies no rightly thinking government will like to follow.
Fayose also went ahead calling Fayemi a betrayer who even betrayed Tinubu who put him in power. He said APC Ekiti even said the defeat experienced in Ekiti during Fayemi’s tenure was the worst defeat their party has ever experienced but at State and National levels. Trust the governor to table them out one after the other. He tabled all what he calls the former governor’s faults. Find the statement released by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka on behalf of the governor after the cut.
“Today, Fayemi has been ostracised by those who assisted him to office because he has betrayed all of them, including Tinubu.
“Never again shall Ekiti be governed by those who will borrow billions of naira to plant flowers and create comfort for themselves alone,” Fayose declared.
“Does he then want us to sustain the legacy of serial betrayal of his benefactors?
“If he served Ekiti and its people well, why was it that he was roundly defeated in all the 16 local councils in the state in the 21 June, 2014 governorship election and his party was also defeated 16 to 0 in the presidential, National Assembly and House of Assembly elections?
“Even his own party men described his electoral defeat as the worst in Nigeria.”
He continued; “did Fayemi leave behind any positive legacy in Ekiti?
“When Fayemi became governor, he chose to close down two universities established by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, government of Segun Oni and abandoned the Oba Adejugbe General Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, claiming that the state could not fund more than one university.
“The same Fayemi, who said Ekiti had no money to fund more than one university preferred to take N25 billion bond to plant flowers that never germinated up till now and build a new governor’s lodge, civic centre, pavilion and execute other irrelevant projects.
“Furniture alone, in the N3.3 billion governor’s lodge that he built for himself and his wife cost N604.9 million and Fayemi wants such legacy of profligacy to be sustained in Ekiti?
“We are sorry to tell him that we won’t sustain such legacy of waste.
“Even vehicles bought for traditional rulers and political appointees, his government did not pay and uncompleted Oba Adejugbe General Hospital and State Pavilion were commissioned with fanfare.
“Today, Ekiti State is under the yoke of debt, courtesy of Fayemi’s mismanagement of the state resources and what we are destroying are those legacies of mis-governance he left behind.
“One bad news that we must however tell Fayemi is that we won’t only destroy his legacy of misgovernance and betrayal in Ekiti, we will also make sure that economic devourers like him will never taste power in the state.”
