My administration a blessing, Fayose replies Fayemi



A former Ekiti State Governor , Ayodele Fayose , has said the statement credited to Governor Kayode Fayemi that his administration was an error is a mere political statement that shouldn ’ t be taken seriously .
He said the Ekiti people knew that his first and second administrations were never an error but rather brought unparalleled blessings and development to the state.

Fayose reacted through his Chief Press Secretary , Mr . Idowu Adelusi , in a press release issued in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday .

He said, “We are not surprised by what Governor Fayemi said because in the first instance going by Nigeria and the kind of politics being played , he cannot praise the good works of Fayose . Besides , as a new governor, he must say something to impress the people no matter how ridiculous it may be .

“If Fayemi said the administration of Fayose is an error , then the road projects, the High Court Complex , the Adunni Olayinka Women Development Centre , the new Governor ’ s Office , the Ministry of Finance building , the flyover bridge , the construction of chalets and renovation buildings in the Government House , among others are errors .

“The old Governor ’ s Office used by Governor Fayemi during his first tenure was built by Fayose and now that providence has bestowed a second term on his shoulder , he will operate from the new Governor ’ s Office also built by Fayose . Are these errors as well?

“Fayose ’ s administration put in place 70 percent of the infrastructure in the state. ”

Fayose also denied taking a loan during his tenure claiming the N 170 bn debt cited by Fayemi were taken by the governor himself in his first term .

“I want to reiterate that former Governor Fayose did not borrow a dime to run the state. The debt which Fayemi is referring to are the loans which he took from the Capital Market and commercial banks .

“This debt was restructured by the Federal Government for easy payment. If Governor Fayemi is sure of what he is saying , let him bring out evidence or set up a probe panel . Governor Fayose is ready to appear before whichever panel . He said he would submit himself to the EFCC and he did that . No state can borrow without the approval of the Federal Ministry of Finance and Debt Management Office .

“We will advise Fayemi not to think the people of the state are gullible and can be hoodwinked into believing lies and cheap propaganda. Already people are counting the number of days he has left in office and it is better Fayemi starts building on the solid foundation laid by his predecessor and stop chasing shadows . ”
