The Outgoing Governor Was Spendthrift & Insensitive The Poor Ekiti People - Fayose

Posted in: , ,

The newly sworn in governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose has slammed his predecessor, Kayode Fayemi, whom he says spent about N3billion upgrading the government house.

Governor Fayose says the previous governor spent at least N100million for his bedroom and his wife's as the beds in there worth 30 and 20 million Naira respectively.

Do you agree with the governor that this was excessive? What of the argument that a government house should be world standard?

According to the statement released by Fayose's Special Assistant Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the new government house was an act of insensitivity to the plight of Ekiti State people, many of whom cannot afford to feed once in a day.

“When we visited the Government House for the first time yesterday, I was like: how I wish I can sell off this place or turn it to commercial use.

“It is simply wicked for a governor to be more interested in this manner of ostentatious comfort at the expense of the people.

“The bed on which Fayemi slept before he left government alone costs over N30 million!

“That of his wife costs over N20 million!

“Between Fayemi and his wife, what was spent on their bedrooms, toilets and bathrooms will be in the region of N100 million.

“How can a responsible government use borrowed fund to provide this kind of luxury for the governor and his family alone in a state where a lot of people cannot afford to feed once in a day?

“People should ask the outgone governor what was really wrong with the abandoned governor’s lodge used by his (Fayemi) predecessors?
