It was gathered that the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has said the All Progressives Congress, APC as a party lacked moral rights to criticise his government policies, having ran the State aground in its four years of Kayode Fayemi’s reign.
Fayose, who reacted to the APC’s criticism of his stomach infrastructure policy through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said “It is preferable to give the people what to eat than spending billions of borrowed fund to build hilltop government house meant for just one family as done by the APC government.”
The governor asked the APC the benefits derivable from the pavilion, government house, civic centre and other white elephant projects that the party used borrowed fund to execute.
He said; “Here is a party that used borrowed fund to plant flowers in Ado Ekiti and none of the flowers can be seen anywhere in the State capital talking about our government’s policies not being developmental.
“Oba Adejugbe General Hospital, Ado Ekiti was almost completed before Fayemi assumed office. That hospital was not completed throughout the four years of APC government. They even went to the ridiculous level of commissioning the hospital with its inside yet to be painted and no single bed provided.
“Today, Ekiti State is struggling to meet its financial obligations to the people because of the senseless and wasteful financial management of the State by the APC government, with billions of naira loans left unpaid.
“However, despite the huge debt burden that they left behind, we have remained faithful to our promises to the people. We have paid workers salaries as at when due, except April salary that we started paying last week Friday.”
