- Kayode Fayemi has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of planning to sell Ekiti state properties
- The governor-elect warned Ekiti people against transacting with Fayose
- He said his administration will not consider the transaction valid
The governor-elect of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi, has raised allegation against Governor Ayodele Fayose of plotting to sell off valuable properties before he hands over.
The Nation reports that Fayemi claimed he uncovered plots by Fayose to engage in some shady deals that will see to the disposal of state properties.
Fayemi said: “The attention of the Governor-Elect of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has been drawn to the clandestine moves by the outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose to hurriedly dispose off some valuable properties of Ekiti State Government through shady arrangements. Some of the properties are:
i. A large expanse of land between Ondo State Civil Service Commission and Elan Club, in front of Government Printing Press, Alagbaka, Akure.
ii. Erinfun Livestock Development Center, covering 600 hectares of land along Federal Polytechnic Road, Ado-Ekiti.
iii. The new Oja Oba Market, among others.
“We hereby inform and advise the general public, particularly prospective buyers to be circumspect in entering into any transaction with the outgoing Governor, Mr. Ayo Fayose in respect of any of the properties mentioned above or any other one whatsoever as the incoming administration may not recognize or give effect to such transactions.
“A word is enough for the wise!”
However, Fayose in a statement by his aide, Lere Olayinka, alleged that agents of Fayemi are planning a court action to stop the allocation of shops to market men and women.
He said: “Desperate APC goons led by Fayemi’s Deputy, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi have concluded plans to scuttle allocation of the over 700 lock up shops in the new Oja Oba market to beneficiaries who have already obtained forms.
“They are set to go to court to stop allocation of the shops. Meanwhile, these same APC people were against the Market Project when it started. But now that the project is nearing completion, they want to allocate the shops to their cronnies not-minding owners of the shops that were demolished to pave way for the new market.
“Ekiti people should remember how these same APC people shared the Irewolede Housing Estate, Ado Ekiti Duplexes built by the Segun Oni’s PDP govt. This time around however, the people will prevail. The lock up shops will be allocated just the way the over 200 open shops were openly allocated a few weeks ago.”
Legit.ng reported earlier that Lere Olayinka said the request of Kayode Fayemi, to the federal government to beef up security in the state ahead of his inauguration, is an indication that he got his mandate through fraud.
Fayemi who will be inaugurated October 16, 2018 had reportedly demanded for security beef up when he paid courtesy visit on the minister of interior, Lieutenant-General Abdulrahman Dambazzau, The Sun.
Fayemi was said to have noted that the state just came out of election conflict and would need the strengthening of security forces to ensure smooth transition of governance.
