Ekiti State Governor Fayose Visits Beer Parlours on Fridays as Part of “Stomach Infrastructure”

While defending the concept of “stomach infrastructure” introduced by
his government in a press conference on Thursday, Governor of Ekiti
State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, reveals that he patronizes drinking joints
every Friday.

According to him, the action is to enable him  get close to the ‘common man’ in the state.

“It would be wrong to assume that stomach infrastructure is meant
only sharing of food and money to the people. I also go to beer parlour
on Fridays to stay with the common men there. Governance is not church;
it is about diverse characters and you must relate with them as such.
“Christmas is coming, why do people go out of their ways to be
shopping or doing other things if it is not just to make people merry?
“So, I’m grooming chicken, buying rice, yams, plantain, and the rest
of them. I am sure if I give them to families during the festive period,
they will be happy. So, stomach infrastructure is a way of life.”
“So, my style, without apology, is that stomach infrastructure is a
way of life for me, I will relate well with my people to alleviate
poverty and hunger,” he added.
