APC Flays Fayose’s Pres­i­den­tial Am­bi­tion

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - From Ay­o­dele Afo­labi, Ado-ek­iti

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.
