I've unfinished business in Ekiti Govt House -Fayemi

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State

Mr. Fayemi, a former governor of the state, spoke on Saturday at a rally in Ado Ekiti, where he declared his ambition to seek the APC ticket for the July 14 governorship election.

Fayemi alleged that the election was manipulated by soldiers in connivance with Fayose and two former ministers.

He also threatened that once the PDP was roundly defeated, the governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, would be prosecuted for mismanaging the economy of the state.

According to her, she is in the race to bridge the gap between the people of the state and the government and to improve the well-being of the people of the state, lamenting that most Ekiti graduates are now "Okada" riders.

"President Buhari is our leader, he is our president and he is the leader of our party".

The minister became the 37th among the aspirants that have shown interest in the seat on the APC platform. I shall be campaigning on the strength of my past achievements as governor of the state and the achievements of the President Buhari -led APC government at the centre. In fact, I am coming too late. During my time, education was free up to SSS 3.

He said the red card is an answer to the White Paper issued against him by the Fayose regime which indicted him of financial impropriety and banned him from holding public office for ten years. They will accuse us of so many things.

Publicity Secretary of ADP, Eniola Eponlolaye, in a statement made available to newsmen on Saturday, said: "It has been reported by members of our party that some agents of the ruling party in the state have started attacking and intimidating people suspected to be members of other political parties at the on-going voter's registration centres, thereby depriving members of the public from participating in the registration exercise".

Dr Fayemi, who was accompanied by a crowd from supporters, acolytes and party faithful for all parts of the state, told the gathering that he was running not for the sake of title, but to rescue the state and restore the good governance he said he instituted in his first term. "We will ensure that he will end up in jail".

"We thought you are educated, we thought you are exposed, how do you come up with a character like this as governor?"

"We will use local, state and federal powers to take over Ekiti from a rapacious and government being run by a brigand in Ekiti".

The ex-governor explained that he took a N25 billion bond from the Capital Market in December 2011 with which he executed capital projects adding that he had repaid N14.5 billion at the time he left office in October 2014.

Dismissing the opposition's claim that he hates workers and teachers, Fayemi stressed that workers enjoyed most during his administration when they enjoyed salary increase three times.

"There is much that we have to fix and redress in Ekiti before we can go forward".
