Fayemi Wasted Ekiti Resources On White Elephant Projects, Fayose Won’t, Says Ekiti Govt

The Ekiti State Government has said that the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose will not spend the State’s scarce resources on execution of white elephant projects, declaring most of the unfinished projects of the immediate past All Progressives Congress (APC) government of Dr Kayode Fayemi as “wasteful spending of public fund.”

Special Assistant to the governor on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka,
who reacted to claim by the APC that Governor
Fayose abandoned his predecessor’s “legacy
projects,” said it was shameful that the APC
Spokesperson, Taiwo Olatunbosun could
gleefully claim that the Fayemi-led government
commissioned an uncompleted Oba Adejugbe
General Hospital, Ado-Ekiti.”

He added that; “At this time that intense lobby is
going on in Abuja for appointments, Olatunbosun
is definitely not doing Dr Kayode Fayemi any
good by exposing him as someone who ran a
dishonest and wasteful government.”

The APC mouthpiece, Olatunbosun had said that
Oba Adejugbe Hospital was completed and
commissioned by the Fayemi administration,
while contract for equipping the hospital was
already awarded but Fayose on assumption of
office cancelled the contract and has abandoned
the hospital to be overgrown with weeds.

However, Olayinka said “instead of wasting the
State resources on Funmi Olayinka Civic Centre,
the Fayose-led government is constructing a
benefitting edifice; Funmi Olayinka Women
Development Centre, which will have a modern
library and that to us is more beneficial to
the people of Ekiti than a Civic Centre.”

Olayinka, who said the Oba Adejugbe Hospital
building was still being painted as at November
2014, added that “the Fayose-led government will
complete the project as soon as the State has
the required financial capability to do so.”

“Those who mean well for Dr Fayemi should call
his attention to the fact that Olatunbosun might
be clandestinely working against his emergence
as minister by indirectly exposing his wasteful
spending when he was Ekiti State governor.

“Or how do you commission a hospital without
medical equipment? Is hospital just about
structures? Isn’t that a fraud, exposure of
which can cost Dr Fayemi his ministerial
ambition?

“How can a sane manager of resources borrow
money to build Civic Centre? Isn’t that a sign
that Dr Fayemi mismanaged Ekiti
State economy?

“No doubt, persistent exposure of this sore
aspect of his government to the public by no
other person than his party’s spokesperson
is inimical to his quest to be appointed a
minister by President Muhammadu Buhari, and it
is becoming more clearer that Olatunbosun
has an agenda against Dr Fayemi,” he said.
