Party Accuses Fayose Of Spending N250 Million State Funds On Christmas Trip To Dubai

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Ekiti chapter, has accused the state governor Ayodele Fayose, of spending a whooping sum of N250 million state funds on Christmas trip to Dubai.
The APC denounce it as a height of insensitivity and irresponsibility on the part of Fayose, at a time when the people were experiencing untold hardship.
Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun, the APC publicity secretary, slammed the allegation on the Ekiti State governor in a recent public statement.
He blasted the governor for refusing to pay the December salaries of workers while embarking on a lavished Christmas foreign trip in Dubia.
“It is more worrisome that the governor prepared and collected travelling allowances for 10 aides who he claimed were to travel with him to Dubai, but only one eventually made the trip while he pocketed money running into millions for the remaining nine. The Dubai trip confirmed our earlier alarm that Fayose is taking Ekiti money out to the Middle East country whenever he receives allocation from the federal government”.
However, Mr Lanre Ogunsuyi, the Commissioner for Information, has come out to refute the allegation, calling the accusation ridiculous.

“The governor is on holiday like every other worker who has worked conscientiously throughout the year. It was not an official journey and it means the governor will be responsible for all the expenses, because he travelled as Mr Fayose and not as Governor Fayose.
“APC is talking having lost all relevance. Every worker in Ekiti has been paid October salary, unless the party has a different calendar, what is outstanding is November and December salaries and the people could understand the reason behind it,” said the Commissioner of Information.
Nevertheless, he accepted that Ekiti State worker were being owed two months’ salary and promise that the government was working hard to address the problem.
