Senator Biodun Olujimi

Senator Biodun Olujimi (PDP-Ekiti South) has criticised Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state over the latest round of demolition of houses in Ado-Ekiti state.

The lawmaker, who is a peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship aspirant, said any development that will cause the citizens tears and hardship will usually back fire and provoke negative reactions.

She made this known on Thursday in a statement signed by the Director General of her campaign organisation, Bunmi Olugbade.

Olujimi stated that the ongoing demolition was ill-timed coming at a situation when workers and pensioners are owed arrears of salaries and benefits.

He said: “In advanced democracies, government will do enumeration and valuation of compensation to be paid to those who will be affected by such demolition, provide temporary accommodation for them and give them enough time to relocate before demolition.

“I want to appeal to those who are affected and I want to promise that the PDP government under my leadership will put smiles o the faces of the people rather than tears.

“Finally, I want to appeal to the people of Ekiti State to embrace the PDP continuity agenda of ensuring that a PDP government is installed rather than a third term agenda of an individual.”
