The Ekiti State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, has tasked Governor Ayodele Fayose to focus on issues of real governance, saying endless war drums against its presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) and frequent trips outside the state without attendant economic benefits, would not add any value to the people.
The party asked the governor to explain to the people how he had been spending the state federal allocations since his inauguration last October.
The State APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, said in a statement on Wednesday that the wake-up call became imperative in the face of the lull in government’s activities to fulfill campaign promises to Ekiti people.
According to Olatubosun, after five months in the saddle, Mr. Fayose was yet to show any sign that he was prepared for governance.
“After five months, the stories of debts profile still dominate the public space instead of unveiling his development programmes. What we have is frequent shuttling between the capitals of the Far East countries and a reversal of development efforts of the immediate past administration of Governor Kayode Fayemi”, Olatubosun said.
He also challenged the governor to tell Ekiti people that the state had been granted a moratorium of six months within which deductions from the Federation Account for payment of bond debt was suspended.
Describing Fayose’s five months administration as a reversal of fortunes, the APC spokesman faulted the government for unemployment caused by cancellation of empowerment schemes introduced by the immediate past administration of Kayode Fayemi.
