Kayode Fayemi has come under much fire for proposing to build an airport in Ekiti state.
Fayemi became the governor of state in 2018, after winning the governorship election and beating the choice candidate of the then governor, Ayo Fayode of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
Many have urged that the state is in site need of infrastructural revamp and building an airport is a case of misplaced priorities.
See some arguments bashing the Governor
@Lawhboy: I’ve never been to Ekiti state before but I heard Fayemi wanna build an airport in that state. LOOOOOOOOOL.
Who will now use the airport in Akure, Ibadan, and Ikeja?
@SamuelAjao: I am trying to figure which project is more needless between Fayose’s Bridge and Fayemi’s (Proposed) Airport.
For a state that is amongst the poorest in the country.
These guys are clowns!!!
@KennethOnyeka18: What will make people fly to Ekiti State? No tourist attraction, no business hub. Meanwhile, what is the population of Ekiti State? The governor just wants to loot 🤷♂️
@CACCOT1: What is the essence or financial advantage of constructing the airport in Ekiti State? Tourism is zero, no developed historical sites, no modern development worthy of flying to see, no business except ministries, nothing to fly for and Fayemi want to construct one!
@Oluafolabi: I really hope that Fayemi discards this idea of an airport for Èkìtì.
I understand that Fayose’s rationale for proposing it was embezzlement, what is Fayemi’s rationale?
Those who didn’t bash the governor’s plan
Nigerians are a funny bunch
I don’t recall as much opposition to the photo ops of Fayose on tractors, amala joints, kpomo sellers etc during his tenure.
But Fayemi planning for a future airport has suddenly raised the hackles of our twitter intellectuals.
What do we want to see?
@giwa_abdulazeez: It seems we must all av opinions abt all issues. We don’t av 2.
Has Fayemi given reasons why he intends 2 build an airport in d state?
If he hasn’t, I don’t understand all these hullabaloos of “Ekiti state doesn’t need an airport”.
Until he does dat, all dese ar nonsense talk
