‘Governor is getting rich while Ekiti people suffer,’ APC says

The comment was contained in a statement released by Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun on Monday, June 20, 2016.

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state

The comment was contained in a statement released by Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun on Monday, June 20, 2016.

The statement reads:

“We have read time and again all the allegations the governor raised through his media aide and we have not found any merit that can mitigate the feeling among Ekiti people that Governor Fayose has a clear agenda to enrich himself while Ekiti people suffer.”

“With all the allegations that the governor raised through his media aide, can he say he did not collect 20 months federal allocations, including N9.6billion bailout cash, refunds on federal roads, Ecological Fund, micro credit cash, banks’ community social responsibility charges, suffocating taxes and the fresh N21.6billion loan the governor took that cannot be traced to any government’s account?

“Again, with all the manipulation of figures, do Fayose’s lies change the DMO’s figure putting Ekiti State’s debts at N18billion under Fayemi’s administration?”

Meanwhile, Fayose’s account has been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
