“I will probe Fayemi after my inauguration” || Ekiti Governor-elect, Fayose means business

by Azubuike Azikiwe

Ayo Fayose, Ekiti State Governor-elect, has declared his intention to investigate all last minute contracts, payments and appointments made by the outgoing governor, Kayode Fayemi.

In a series of Tweets on his Twitter handle during the week, he said he would look into the outgoing Governor’s recent employment spree, while also reiterating his stand in regards to the planned creation of new local council development areas (LCDA) in the state.

He said, “A government that sacked workers on spurious grounds has now turned round to employ thousands through the back door – this will be looked into. My position on the issue of purported LCDA creation is explicitly stated: they have no constitutional backing and will not be funded. While I am mindful that my mandate does not start until October 16th, I am also mindful of the potential time bombs being put in front of me.”

“We are aware of last minute deals by the present government with spurious awards of contracts and payments made — this is unfair to our people. A transition committee is in place to work with the government (of Kayode Fayemi) for a smooth handover and also to monitor financial transactions that involve (his) government,” he added.

Fayose also alleged that Fayemi is working towards putting land mines and potential time bombs in place, for him to inherit when he is inaugurated as Governor of the state.

He stated, “Those who however choose to deliberately misunderstand our position even when clearly stated are enemies of the collective good. Let me make this clear so that our opponents can hear: any landmine in my path as Governor-elect is a direct attack on our people in Ekiti State.”

“Irregular expenditure and questionable financial transactions by the outgoing government should find no cooperation from commercial banks in Ekiti. Full legal action will be brought against bank found culpable of fraudulent financial dealings with the outgoing administration.”

“Banks should continue to conduct government business with sincerity of purpose and compliance with the highest standards of banking integrity,” he said.

Fayose also spared a few words for his enemies, saying that their actions motivate him to aspire for greatness.

“We can’t fail to mention those who choose to denigrate us –we see them not as enemies but (as people who) spur (us) to greatness and humility. Not all opponents are enemies. Some are just too far from us to understand who we really are as humans.”
