Ongoing viral reports say the outgoing
Governor of Ekiti state Kayode Fayemi spent about N3billion renovating and
revamping the government quarters. – spending at least N100million for
his bedroom and his wife’s as the beds in there worth 30
and 20 million Naira respectively.
The newly elected Governor of Ekiti state, Governor Ayo Fayose allegedly revealed this.
According to him, in a statement by
his Special Assistant Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the
new government house was an act of insensitivity to the plight of Ekiti State
people, many of whom cannot afford to feed once in a day.
“When we visited the Government House for the first time
yesterday, I was like: how I wish I can sell off this place or turn it to
commercial use.“It is simply wicked for a governor to be more interested in
this manner of ostentatious comfort at the expense of the people.“The bed on
which Fayemi slept before he left government alone costs over N30 million!
“That of his wife costs over N20 million! “Between Fayemi
and his wife, what was spent on their bedrooms, toilets and bathrooms will be
in the region of N100 million.
“How can a responsible government use borrowed fund to
provide this kind of luxury for the governor and his family alone in a state
where a lot of people cannot afford to feed once in a day?
“People should ask the outgone governor what was really
wrong with the abandoned governor’s lodge used by his (Fayemi) predecessors?, the governor quizzed.
