Fayemi Faults Fayose’s Refusal To Set Up Transmission Committee
Mr. Segun Sipe, a spokesman of Dr. Kayode Fayemi has expressed fears and disappointment over the failure of the outgoing governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose to recognize the victory of Dr. Fayemi.
Sipe who in a statement yesterday accused Mr. Fayose of failing to reciprocate the good gestures Dr. Fayemi extended to him four years ago when Fayose was on the other side of the winning ticket.
“One month after the 14 July 2018 Governorship election in Ekiti State, Governor Peter Ayodele Fayose is still in denial. He has neither congratulated the acclaimed winner of the election, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, who happened to be his predecessor in office and did not deny him the benefit of such honour in 2014, nor constituted a committee that will see to the smooth transition of power from him to the governor-elect, who will take over the mantle from him on 16 October 2018,” Sipe wrote.
Noting the importance of setting up a transition committee, he said:
“No well-meaning leader would want to treat this very important process with levity, except a Fayose who keeps deluding himself and his followers who keep decreasing in number by the day. In their minds, something surreal would still happen that would truncate the handing over process, and so there is no need to set up a committee for the transition.
“On the other hand, some people are of the view that Fayose might rather be planning to have a conversation with his legs, that is, take a flight when transition becomes imminent. He would rather leave the handing-over to his hapless subordinates than to sink his over-bloated ego and act statesmanlike.”
