PDP Attacks Fayemi Over Assembly Invitation Of Fayose
The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], on Friday, berated the state governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi over the invitation on Thursday of former governor, Mr. Peter Ayodele Fayose by the State House of Assembly.
PDP State Chairman, Gboyega Oguntuwase, in a statement issued on Friday, claimed it was a strategy of the administration to distract people’s attention from its alleged incompetence.
The statement said: “The invitation of former Governor Fayose by the state House of Assembly over phantom allegations is an antic of the All Progressives Congress government led by Dr Fayemi to fool and distract the people of Ekiti State.”
The Assembly had on Thursday summoned Fayose; a former Speaker of the House, Kola Oluwawole; former chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria, Mr Dapo Olagunju; former Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Mr Kola Kolade; and the 16 Local Government Chairmen elected during Fayose’s tenure over allegations bothering on misappropriation of funds.
Fayose, meanwhile, on Friday, honoured the invitation saying he has clear conscience. Read also:
However, Oguntuwase, in the statement issued in Ado Ekiti, said:
“The invitation is a witch-hunting strategy and a distraction meant to blind Ekiti people from seeing the near-zero per cent report sheet of Fayemi in his one year in office.
“The governor should instead concentrate on positive governance rather than furthering his hatred agenda against Fayose,” he said.
The PDP chairman derided Fayemi who he said, “refused to honour an invitation by the House of Assembly to explain massive financial misappropriation during his first tenure to now want to use the same platform to harass and intimidate a former governor with innumerable achievements to cover up the history of absurdity and non-performance”.
