Following the remarks of Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, that he has done creditably well for the people of the state in the last one year, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Publicity Secretary Ekiti State, Taiwo Olatunbosun, has disagreed absolutely with Fayose’s assessment of his own performance.

In a statement he said: “The experience of Ekiti people in the last one year had shown clearly that there is nothing to celebrate in terms of achievements.”

According to The Nation, he allegedly accused Fayose of running a one-man government without regard to the law, he cited the new unbudgeted airport project that had led to the death of a farmer.

Olatunbosun also alleged that there was no segment of the society that Fayose has not visited with pains and anguish.

He added: “Thousands of young men engaged by former Governor Kayode Fayemi have lost their jobs, promotions for civil servants and teachers by Fayemi have been cancelled and statutory allowances to civil servants have been reduced while allowances to traditional rulers were cut by 40 per cent.

“The asphalt overlay at Fayose Market he inaugurated is an MDG project paid for by the Fayemi administration.

“The asphalt plant he “inaugurated” was bought and paid for by the Fayemi administration. He only received the equipment when they were shipped into Nigeria.

“The Matthew Street road is the joke of the century as Fayose only fixed the culvert and graded some portions of the road, which he inaugurated as a project.

”This is nothing short of taking Ekiti people for a ride. It is chicanery of the highest form,” he concluded.
