Senator Fatimah Raji-Rasaki, representing Ekiti central senatorial district has described the tenure of former governor Fayose as an era of terror.
She said the people of the state were unlucky to have him as their governor.
"In fact, Fayose’s era was like a bad dream that nobody ever prays to experience again in Ekiti. The people of Ekiti state were unlucky to have witnessed such a draconian era in their history, when Fayose was their governor. It was a whole four years in the wilderness," she said.
Senator Raji-Rasaki also said that during Fayose's time as governor, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state was a theatre of war, New Telegraph reports.
She said the governor was an emperor who did not want to recognise anything about party politics.
"He was all in all, nobody could talk to him and anybody who had any meaningful opinion that was contrary to his view was tagged an enemy," she said.
Going further, she said there were about four factions of the same party in the state.
"It was a chaotic situation, no respect for elders of the party because of what the few ones who called themselves executive of the party were benefiting from the crumbs from the table of the master," she added.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the former governor Fayose mocked the outgoing governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun, over the reported defeat of his candidate in the Ogun state governorship election.
Fayose in a tweet on Sunday, March 10, congratulated Amosun for losing the election of his political son.
