FORMER governor of Ekiti State and Minister for Solid Minerals Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has described the allegations of the state governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, that certain APC chieftains, including him (Fayemi), planned to removed him from office as irresponsible and unfair.
Fayemi said this on Wednesday through his Special Assistant on Media, Mr Yinka Oyebode, adding that he would rather not dignify Governor Fayose’s rantings with a response.
According to Oyebode, it is simply a case of the wicked running when no one pursues.
“It would appear, Governor Fayose wakes up daily in search of new controversies and making one spurious allegation after another. And it does not really matter to him whether such allegations are reasonable, logical or sensible.
“This allegation is not only irresponsible, it is quite unfair to the two former governors of the state.
“And one is not surprised at this, because under Fayose, falsehood has been elevated to the level of statecraft, sustained by machinery of state.
“My advice to him is: Let the governor go and honour the promises he made to the Ekiti electorate (if he ever made any). Let him pay workers their salaries, take governance more seriously and make the state safe for lives, property and investments. If he can do these, then he needs not fear anyone.
“However, this is certainly a poorly contrived alibi for his ineptitude and apparent low capacity for the serious business of governance.
“It is purely a cheap blackmail that will not fly,” he concluded.
