Outgoing Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, says his handover note is ready for scrutiny, with 35 days to the end of his tenure.
Concise News understands that Fayose did not cooperate with the Transition Committee set up by Incoming-Governor Kayode Fayemi.
It was learned that the governor refused to answer questions about certain records, saying that the committee was illegal.
Fayose urged the Governor-Elect to stop spreading falsehood about him or the finances of his administration.
Making this known in a statement on Sunday, the governor described as mere fabrication, the claim that his government had accumulated a debt of N117 billion as against the N18 billion it inherited.
“It is on record that Ekiti State Government was indebted to the tune of N86, 013,689,097 as at October 16, 2014 that Governor Fayose took over,” the governor’s media aide Lere Olayinka said in a statement on Sunday.
“The debts are broken down as follows: Bank Loans; N15, 831,613,425.62, Bond; N26, 749,796,784.75, Outstanding Warrants; N15, 522,552,900.76, Outstanding to Road Contractors; N21, 286,126,749, Outstanding Remittances to FG; N709, 883,656.75, Outstanding Remittances (State Govt); N592, 995,374.89 and EKSG Public Servants Outstanding Emoluments; N5, 137,888,224.37.”
he advised Fayemi to face the task of “defending the mandate that he stole and his fraudulent emergence as the APC candidate instead of treading the usual path of deceiving the public to cover up his failure.”
