Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has denied reports that the state received more than N9 billion from the Federation Account for use in July 2016.
Fayose made the clarification on Monday, July 25, 2016, during a broadcast in Ado-Ekiti, a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi said.
The statement reads in part:
Those peddling unfounded rumours were given their own opportunity to lead the state and they left the state in huge debts. Their failed, white elephant projects litter the state.
The uncompleted civic centre, the new Governor’s Office along NTA Road where they only scrapped the ground. The pavilion was uncompleted and left in a state of disrepair.
I have always make known whatever comes to the state as allocations. There is nothing to hide as even the federal authorities do publish the allocations in daily newspapers.
Their mischief has failed and by God’s grace they cannot defeat me. Let them continue to delude themselves, Ekiti people are no fools, they know the truth and those who stand for the truth.
