Fayose spoke on Wednesday during the inauguration of a new school he built in his Afao-Ekiti home country as part of his legacies projects.
Daily Post reports that the outgoing governor also stated that he didn’t borrow any money to from anywhere to finance any of the projects.
“With all these legacies projects, I didn’t borrow any dime. I do not owe any debt, if they say I’m owing; they should show evidence of transaction.
“Besides, no governor can borrow without the knowledge of the Ministry of Finance and the Debt Management Office,” he said.
Fayose admonished the incoming administration not to neglect the school or abandon any legacy project.
