Apc In Ekiti State Blame Fayose For Lingering Fuel Scarcity


The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has
accused the state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, of
diversion of petroleum products meant for the state,
thereby contributing to the lingering
being experienced in the state. According to
Vanguard, the Publicity Secretary of in Ekiti state,
Taiwo Olatunbosun, said in a statement released
yesterday April 24th, that Fayose and his aides in
connivance with some NUPENG officials, were
allegedly diverting the daily petroleum supply meant
for the state to other states.
“Records have revealed that 10 trailers of for
Ekiti State on Fayose’s request were diverted mostly
to stations outside the state. The Secretary to the
State Government, Dr. Mrs Dupe Alade, had earlier
written for same allocation but her letter to NNPC
was stepped down when Fayose used his office to
request for the allocation of to 10 filling stations,
many of which do not exist in Ekiti State The
governor’s letter was addressed to the Area Manager
at Mosimi and minuted to Ore and was processed by
the Ore office of NNPC.
The trailers were loaded on Wednesday and
Thursday the 20th and 21st of April but the real
companies and vendors were prevented from
loading until the 10 trailers demanded by the
governor left the depot but were diverted to other
stations outside Ekiti State,”he said According to
Olatunbosun, this action by Fayose has led to
shortage of petroleum products in the state.
He said the diverted were taken to fictitious
companies Fashola listed in his letter to NNPC.
Among the companies include “Royal Oil, which the
letter falsely claimed to exist in Omuo-Ekiti. Rova Oil,
also on the governor’s letter, no longer exists in Ekiti
because it has since been sold and its name changed
and it is now operating under NNPC. It is located in
Ajilosun area of the state capital and selling above
NNPC official price. Other non-existent stations in
Ekiti but which appeared in the governor’s letter and
was allocated fuel is Bisi Jay located in Ile-Oluji in
Ondo State. The other company that received Ekiti
State’s allocation is Ademur located in Osun State.
This company has no station in Ekiti and it has no
lifting right or permit in Ore, while Eyeowa Fuel that
got allocation does not exist in Ekiti,” the statement
read. He challenged the governor to deny ever
writing to the NNPC for fuel allocation.
“There is need for the security agencies and the
Minister for Petroleum to investigate the
governor’s activities at the NNPC offices both in
Ore and Mosimi and the roles of NUPENG
officials in this wicked unleashing of pains on
Ekiti people by unpatriotic act to sabotage the
Federal Government,”.
