APC Flays Fayose’s Presidential Ambition
THE All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has criticised Governor Ayodele Fayose for declaring ambition to contest the 2019 presidential election while owing state workers salaries and allowances ranging from six to eight months.
Fayose had on Thursday declared his presidential ambition at a ceremony held in Abuja, the nation's capital, in breach of his party's arrangement to zone the office to the North.
But in a statement in Ado-ekiti by Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party flayed the governor for "being blind to the sufferings of workers while pursuing self-promot- ing presidential ambition".
He said it was unconscionable for the governor to keep deceiving workers on the state's poor finances to endure suffering while he enjoyed full life with his family and pursuing mundane fancies without sparing thoughts for the sufferings of the people.
"It is the height of wickedness for Fayose to always call teachers to meetings like he did this week to brainwash them on the state's poor finances and later give them N1,500 pittance for transport until the next brainwashing sessionwiththeseteachersin empty stomachs while he enjoys full life misapplying state's money for his fancies.
