The All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday criticized Governor Ayodele Fayose’s claim during his media chat, Meet Your Governor, on Friday when he said that the state’s debt profile had risen to N252 billion naira to be paid off in 2036.

According to the party, shortly after the inauguration of the Governor, he (Governor Fayose) disclosed that under the Kayode Fayemi led administration, Ekiti State was owing N86 billion Naira to be paid off in 2020, only for him to subsequently put the figure at N56 billion naira and now, N252 billion Naira.

The opposition noted that all the figures churned out by Fayose contradicted the N18.5 billion released by the Debt Management Office (DMO) .

The party through its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said it was time the governor stopped deceiving the people, while noting that the motive of the Governor was to deny former political office holders payment of severance allowances.

Olatunbosun said that “It is regrettable that the Fayose administration has turned Ekiti State to a trading post using reckless propaganda to deceive the people.

This is to put them in a permanent state of flux so that they won’t be able to demand their rights.

We want to make it clear that Fayemi left a debt of N18.5 billion as he explained during his ministerial screening session and this has not been controverted.

It is gratifying that Fayemi did not borrow to pay salaries; he borrowed to implement development projects and the projects are there for the people to see,” he said.

We call on workers to insist on the payment of their entitlements and the people should demand performance and should not be deceived by endless lies on the state’s debt profile."

While reacting to Governor Fayose's message to the civil servants not to expect salary in June, The All Progressives Congress (APC)  has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of being uncaring towards workers.

The opposition party also stated that during his campaigns, Fayose promised to reduce fees at the state university but now, students pay more than before they used to during Fayemi's tenure.

Meanwhile, workers in the state have urged Governor Fayose to face the task of governing the state, instead of preoccupying himself with controversies and issues against the opposition.
