The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has criticized Governor Ayodele Fayose for declaring himself as an agent of change for the state.
In a statement by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, while reviewing the governor’s achievements in the last two years, he said, Fayose had succeeded in reversing the state’s fortunes attained by his predecessor in four years.
Olatunbosun accused Fayose of claiming credit for former Governor Kayode Fayemi’s achievements, saying partitioning of roads built by his predecessor and erecting electricity poles he bought in local governments should not be projects that he would be celebrating.
“It was regrettable that Fayose has been using an alleged election fraud to sustain himself in power,” he said.
“The recent revelation and confession of Obanikoro that Fayose allegedly shared in the loot of the national treasury was a cause of concern to Ekiti people,” he added.
While reacting to the allegations, Mr. Jackson Adebayo, the Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said Fayose has succeeded in moving the state forward in all areas of developments as against the claims of the APC.
“The PDP-led government of Governor Ayodele Fayose, has succeeded in reversing the misfortunes placed on Ekiti and the people by the immediate past government of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“The Fayose-led administration in the last two years has taken Ekiti to a place of pride in the areas of education, infrastructure, security, health and social amenities among others,” he added.
