APC blasts Fayose over declaration of presidential ambition | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has criticised Governor Ayo Fayose for declaring his intention to contest the 2019 presidential election while he is owing workers in the state salaries and allowances ranging from six to eight months.


The party described the governor’s action as the height of insensitivity to the people’s plight and an “irresponsible conduct to behave as if Ekiti State treasury is a personal estate for private comfort.”

In a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti by the Publicity Secretary of APC, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party flayed the governor for “being blind to the sufferings of workers while pursuing self-promoting presidential ambition.”

He said it was unconscionable for the governor to keep deceiving workers on the state’s poor finances to endure suffering while he enjoyed full life with his family and pursue mundane fancies without sparing a thought for the sufferings of the people.

Olatunbosun said: “It is the height of wickedness for Fayose to always call teachers to meetings like he did this week to brainwash them on the state’s poor finances and later give them N1,500 pittance for transport until the next brainwashing session with these teachers on empty stomachs while he enjoys full life misapplying state’s money for his fancies.

“This is more condemnable against the backdrop of facts available to Ekiti people that Fayose has been awarding contracts at over-bloated costs to his friends outside Ekiti State, contrary to his promise to patronise indigenous contractors during his campaigns.

He contended that the money the state had collected since the governor assumed office was enough to make the people happy if he had applied the money honestly and transparently, adding that Thursday’s declaration of his presidential ambition was meant to distract the people from alleged funds mismanagement in pursuit of a selfish ambition.

“The presidential declaration is a distraction to keep Ekiti busy from keeping attention to his illegality in the application of Ekiti money for selfish purposes and a ploy to embark on whipping up sentiments to escape justice in his misapplication of Ekiti money.

“We urge the EFCC to be meticulous in their investigation into how the governor misapplied bailout of N20b, CBN’s N2b loan for small-scale enterprises, N10b loan for projects, N2.8b UBEC/Subeb counterpart fund (which was not matched by the state government), monthly allocation from the Federation Account to Local government councils and Paris Club cash that he has diverted to his ill-motivated projects for selfish motives while Ekiti people go to bed on empty stomachs.”

  2. Fayose is ten times better than other APC controlled States. E.g Kogi, the worst hit is owing 10-21 months, Benue etc. What did you say about these ones? Don't worry, Kogi people will show APC and Bello their rightful place come next general election. Am from Kogi State, and I can categorically tell you that since the inception of this administration, Kogi people have been in anguish. Mind you, am not a politicians.

    2. Sorry why worry yourself about Yoruba problems when you should have talk to your Biafraud brothers. It's clearly seen that Ibo people do not know exactly what they exist for. For them it's any government in Power. You want to reap where you have not sow.

    3. Mr truth and fact, your name supposed to be false and tribalism.
      Yahaya Bello says he cannot pay ghost workers, hydra-headed human beings.
      Definitely you an Igala if you are truly a Kogite, you people created ghost institutions- schools, hospitals etc. Yahaya Bello says no.
      Wada pays 10-15% salaries every month for full year before leaving four full months unpaid which Yahaya Bello has paid.
      Yahaya Bello is not owing any genuine Kogi workers more than a month.
      Lets wait for 2019, we shall see. If care is not taken, the Ebiras shall tell you the Igalas that enough is enough and declare Yahaya Bello as everlasting governor of the state. Who doesn't know that the other name for you people is selfish, cheat, egocentricity, operation eat all in the name of majority.

  3. Gbenga you talk insensitively. You are an ethnic bigot. A hater of truth. While attack the Igbo? What has Biafra got to do with the realities on ground. Are you pretending to be in unaware that Nigerian's are suffering heavily under the APC controlled states and federal government. Pls do your inquiry very well and you will find out that majority of the states were APC are in control are suffering with backlog of salaries unpaid yet always calling for bailout. Look Nigerian's are much wiser now. Any one without credibility or who has not delivered for the position held before and cannot deliver as seen for the future cannot be voted for come 2019 whether APC or PDP or APDA or even others. Shikina.
