Why I Will Not Attend Fayemi Inauguration – Fayose

Published

Mr Ayodele Fayose, the outgoing governor of Ekiti State, has hinted that he may not honour invitation to attend the inauguration of Dr. Kayode Fayemi because of the erratic nature of politicians.

The governor added that he was booked for that day, as he had promised to report to the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the same day the swearing-in will be happening.

Niaja News had earlier reported that the incoming governor of the state, Fayemi had extended an invite to Fayose to attend the inauguration.

Speaking at a press conference in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, Fayose said the EFCC may have the opportunity of harassing him if he reneged on his promise to appear before it next Tuesday.

“Politicians are erratic people, if I should attend the programme, some politicians may use the chance to harass me even when they are not sent by Fayemi.

“This will further destroy relationship. Issues between me and Fayemi is not personal. I have been cooperating with the committee set up by Fayemi on this transition

“Again, I have to be in EFCC office in Abuja on Tuesday. But let me say clearly that I am ready to appear before any Panel set up by incoming government to probe my administration”, he said.

Fayose revealed that he had not taken any loan or placed the state under any debt to finance the projects he undertook as governor of the state.

He urged Fayemi to deploy the N327 million kept in bank by his administration to complete the new Oja Oba market for the use of Ekiti traders.

The Governor added that he decided to abandon the civic centre project started by Fayemi and constructed a new market because it was not a priority to the people of the state.

The governor said he decided not to name any project after himself on the basis of his belief that such was morally wrong.

“The flyover, the new governor’s office, the roads, the Oja Oba market, the Funmilayo Olayinka Women development centre and other projects will speak for me even if I refuse to name projects after myself,” he said.

According to Daily Post, Three All Progressives Congress (APC) and 11 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Thursday removed the principal officers and installed an APC lawmaker, Hon Adeniran Alagbada, as the new Speaker.

Fayose said: “I won’t dabble into what is happening in the assembly. Whether they elect Oluwawole or Alagbada, such person must believe that he was elected to serve Ekiti people.

“I enjoin them to cooperate with Fayemi to move Ekiti forward. I don’t want to hear of any impeachment against Fayemi, if truly we are here to serve”, he advised.
