The APC in in Ekiti State has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of awarding a contract of repainting the Ekiti State Governor’s Office to his ‘blood brother’ at the cost of N200m.
The APC alleged that Gov. Fayose asked for marble to be put in front of the Government House, something they claim he’d earlier condemned as being too expensive.
In a statement by Ekiti State Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, yesterday Nov 16, APC said,
“To add salt to injury, artisans working on the marble are all brought from Ibadan when many Ekiti artisans could do the job.
This is a man who claims to be a friend of the masses.
He is repainting the Governor’s Office awarded by direct labour at the cost of N200m to his blood brother.”
“He told the Permanent Secretary, General Administration Department and Head of Service to find an alternative entrance for civil servants who work within the Governor’s Office building because he doesn’t want to be meeting the workers while coming in through the main entrance.
This has been effected as civil servants in the Governor’s Office now pass through the back to their offices, yet this is the class of people he professed to be his friends before the election and he has also cancelled the appointment of eight permanent secretaries that were legally appointed after passing necessary examinations according to the service rules.’ they alleged
