“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 in 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,”
“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 investigations 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 Govt),Monthly allocation from the Federation Account to Local govt council and Paris Club cash that he has diverted to his ill-motivated projects for selfish motives, while Ekiti people go to bed in empty stomachs.” Olatunbosun said.
Fayose had on Thursday formally declared his presidential ambition at a ceremony held at Chelsea Hotel, Garki in Abuja.
