The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ekiti has denied an allegation that former governor Kayode Fayemi
gave the party N4 billion, which was meant for worker in the state to fund its activities.
Spokesperson of the party in the state Taiwo Olatubosun, in a statement said that it was unfortunate that the governor was just realising that Fayemi diverted N4 billion after eight months in office.
According to reports, the spokesman said the the allegation was meant to divert attention from the controversy over the alleged N720 million he awarded himself as salary arrears for his unfinished first time while at the same time owing workers salaries and pensioners’ entitlements.
Meanwhile, Governor Fayose has denied allegations that he paid himself the sum of N750 million as terminal benefits for his first term in office. He made the claim on Monday, June 22, 2015 in broadcast to mark the first year of his return as governor of the state.
The governor said only a wicked leader would pay such a huge sum to himself in the face of the present economic hardship.
According to him, the allegation was the plan of the opposition to cause disaffection among the Ekiti people.
