The spokesperson of PDP, Jackson Adebayo, in a statement, condemned the Governor for bringing the state back to the worst path from where he met it when he assumed office on October 16, 2018.
PDP noted that the former Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose put the development of infrastructure in the state, that Governor Fayemi can build on rather than pull the gear of progress ro reverse.
The party accused the government of being short of ideas on how to develop the state but only conspired to snatch power to enrich themselves.
Adebayo cited the case of the new Oja-Oba international market, which was almost completed by the last administration with enough money left for the completion, which till today still remained in the state as it was in 2018 October.
The PDP spokesman also pointed out that the street lights installed by the last administration and other urban beautification projects are no more being maintained by the Fayemi government, adding that roads that has only few meters to be completed have not been touched in a whole year of Fayemi administration.
The opposition party accused the Fayemi administration of not working on any schools or hospitals in the state in the last one year, it added that the extension of pipe water projects in Ado-Ekiti is a Federal Government project.
PDP revealed that the only project that could be attributed to the Fayemi government is the civic centre which he claimed was nearly completed in his first term, the party revealed that it is still under construction with frontage painting to deceive Ekiti people again.
According to PDP, the governor is planning to erect a cargo airport an idea which was condemned by his party when the last administration attempted to construct the airport.
Apart from the improved allocations to the State from the Federal government, which is estimated to be about 150 Billion Naira, PDP revealed that the present government has secured foreign loans running into several Millions of Dollar with nothing to show for it, among which is the latest 100 Million dollars from the Africa Development Bank.
APC while reacting to the allegation through its spokesperson, Ade Ajayi, described it as a concocted falsehood and monumental conjectures.
He said Governor Fayemi will not be distracted by the ranting of paranoid people who are the only perfectionist at spreading the gospel of bare-faced lies.
Ajayi noted that in the last year, Governor Fayemi has started off on a strong footing with all indicators of socio-economic development in a positive mode.
“We are greatly appalled at the desperation of the PDP to spread all manners of lies and falsehood against our government.
“When Governor Fayemi came on board virtually all sectors of the state was in deplorable condition but now the health sector has been reinvigorated, education is taking its pride of place, infrastructures and basic amenities are taking good shape, the economy is improving markedly and the state is enjoying a peaceful ambience devoid of political upheaval.”
