Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has been described as a frustrated and desperate man, by a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.
Prince Adeyeye, who was a former Minister of State for Works, in a press statement signed and released on Sunday in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, by Mr Niyi Ojo, Director of Press for his campaign organization, PAAM, said recent actions of Governor Fayose have pointed to the fact that he is not his normal self and that many recent political losses he is experiencing have turned him into a desperate man, bent on holding on to power that is fast slipping away from him, a reality, he said, is staring him in the face.
The statement explains its assertions, “Fayose is confused, desperate, frustrated and desperate at the moment. His recent actions shows that he is not his usual confident and braggart self.
”He recently promoted 46,000 workers in one clear swoop, in order to entice the workers in the state to vote for his anointed candidate.
”He is not even making any attempt to cover up his tracks. He did not even bother to dress it up, from the political gimmick that it is. The
act was purely an election gimmick, and he is not even bothered about people knowing that it was a political charade.
”Everybody knew it was a political gimmick, it shows his level of desperation. These are workers he has not paid for eight months now and he has been going round to collect and clone their PVCs in the Government House”.
The former PDP chieftain also alleged that the Governor has been going round schools in the state, dishing out the sum of N1.5 million and bowls of rice per school to teachers he has not paid for eight months.
”These are schools without roads and other necessary facilities. He has neglected these schools and their environments, since he became Governor of the state. All of a sudden, he is so concerned about them and the welfare of the teachers.
”He recently announced that he was creating 2000 jobs, just four weeks before he leaves office. The forms for the non-existent jobs, only have space for the PVC numbers of the applicants and no column for their education qualifications or the kind of job available or desired
”He has not and cannot do local government campaigns because he has nothing to point out to, as his achievements in those areas.
”So, he has been harassing teachers and workers and cajoling them at the same time. However, have good news for the workers and teachers, that no matter what he says or does now, he is just deceiving them .
”It is good that a lot of them have decided to call his bluff and vote according to their conscience for Dr. Kayode Fayemi on July 14. The incoming Governor of the state, has assured the workers or teachers, who are been harassed daily by Fayose that, he will reinstate anyone of them that is sacked or sanction because of their refusal to give in to his lies,” Adeyeye claimed
