Fayose accuses Fayemi, APC of ‘peddling falsehood’

Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, Sunday, accused his predecessor, Kayode Fayemi, and the latter’s party, All Progressives Congress, APC, of “peddling falsehood” against him on the social media.

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Mr. Fayose asked his alleged traducers to desist forthwith.

“Lying on social media will only make Ekiti people hate Fayemi and his APC the more,” Mr. Olayinka said.

He said it was unintelligent for the APC or Mr. Fayemi to allege that Governor Fayose bought a private jet worth N12 billion and had received N22 billion from the Federal Government.

“The government has not received any special fund from the Federal Government since Governor Fayose assumed office,” he said.

“It is even an indictment on Fayemi for anyone associated with him to claim that Governor Fayose was able to get N22 billion special fund from Abuja within one month. It is simply saying that Fayemi was
grossly incompetent if he was governor for four years and could not get additional fund for Ekiti State.

“Fayose did not buy any private jet and he has not received any N22billion from Abuja.

“The truth is, Governor Fayose is working day and night to rescue Ekiti State from the financial mess that Fayemi and his government of financial devourers left it.

“Very soon, his efforts will begin to yield results and the results will be seen by the entire people of Ekiti.”

Mr. Olayinka said the APC should provide a credible opposition to the Fayose-led government, “instead of living a life of one day, one lie” on the social media.

“If the APC should continue to premise its opposition on falsehood, it will get to a level that no one will believe the party even when it says the truth,” Mr. Olayinka said.

    Governance entails having intelligent people taking decisions that translates to development. Ekiti believes having a Governors that drinks paraga with them on the street is good governance. The civil servants campaigned against and voted Fayemi out because he refused to bring money to the table for self enrichment.
    Similar scenario played out in Osun state in 2002, when Bisi Akande was voted out by the civil servants because he refused compromise, but they retraced their steps after Oyinlola’s (PDP) 4years of misrule and gross incompetence. Ekiti have the next 4years to compare between this clown and the last administration.
    Let me quickly point out that Fayoses last administration was better than his predecessor’s ( Adebayo from AD), although it was full of violence because he couldn’t handle criticism. Another reason why he masterminded the impeachment of his deputy before got impeached himself.

      Sometimes we should learn to respect the wishes of the people. What else do you call democracy? They said they don’t want Fayemi. He was rejected in all the local governments. He is not even close as a runner-up. Nothing could be more emphatic that the APC failed. Had Fayemi known:

      He wouldn’t have subjected school teachers to WAEC exam in the name of promotion exam. There are no companies in Ekiti. Teaching is the most popular discipline.

      He won’t have been so disrespectful to workers. In the name of ghost workers, thousands of LG workers lost their jobs. Many of them are actually not ghosts, but we’re wittled out unjustly.

      He won’t build a 30 billion Naira statehouse with 50m Naira as furnishing in his own bedroom.

      He won’t demolish people’s shops only to replace same with flowers.

      If you fall into any of these clusters, will you vote for him?

      Fayose has been in government. If he failed that Oyinlola, there is no way he would have returned. Teachers knew the difference, so were traders and traditional rulers.

      You will be disappointed that the people you think are fools are actually more enlightened than you.

        I know there is freedom of association but why must you jump at defending and supporting discredited, unrealible and uncouthworthy politician who are bent on derailing our democracy?
        Anyone supporting Fayose who is unruly, lacking in decorum and predisposed to virulent behavior against people of different political persuation should have his head examined.
