Immediate past Governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose has said his government did well during his time as leader of the South West state.
This was in reaction to a comment by the Anglican Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Rt. Rev. Christopher Omotunde that Fayose’s time as leader of the State was a waste.
In a statement on Monday, Fayose’s media aide Idowu Adelusi said “Bishop Omotunde should remove his priest’s garment and mount the soapbox if he is minded to be this politically partisan.
“He said Fayose’s opposition to Buhari administration did not allow Ekiti to benefit anything from the centre.
“Assuming that was the case, it only confirmed President Muhammadu Buhari as an autocrat who must not be criticised, and not a democrat who should take criticisms in his stride.”
According to the statement, “Ekiti under Fayose and PDP has witnessed more economic and physical development in the last four years when compared to neighbouring APC-controlled states which have openly venerated President Buhari as their god-father.
“What has Ondo, Osun, Oyo, Ogun benefitted from the Federal Government? What has even Lagos, where the APC national leader comes from, benefitted?
“In terms of peace and security, Ekiti under Fayose was peaceful; it was secured from herdsmen attacks, assassinations, and armed robbery opreations.
“These and politically-motivated killings have returned in full swing under Fayemi/APC.”
