Ekiti Man Rejects Fayose’s Appointment, Says It Is Too Small

A former member of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Board of
Trustees, Dayo Okondo, has rejected his appointment by the Ekiti State
Governor, Ayodele Fayose, as a member of the Governing Council of the College
of Education, Ikere Ekiti, according to Premium Times.
The rejection came shortly after the governor announced the
list of the appointees on state radio, Friday.
He said he was not contacted before his name was announced
over the radio, and noted that the appointment was not befitting of his status
as a former member of the BOT of the PDP.

Mr. Okondo, apparently displeased by the appointment, told
journalists in Ado-Ekiti, that the appointment was “demeaning”.
But Mr. Fayose had on Wednesday told newly appointed
commissioners that whoever was not pleased with the he appointment could reject
it, and that the slot would be assigned to another person.
Mr. Okondo said, “Making me a board member falls short of
what he should do and if I have to take care of myself very well and take care
of my health, I don’t know of what use the membership of the College Board
would do for me.
“I can’t see how somebody who had served as a PDP Board of
Trustees member will now be appointed a College Board member. I was shocked by
the appointment with my status and level of work that I did,” he said.
“I brought the party to the state and I brought Fayose into
the party. I supported him wholeheartedly when others refused to support him
and I ensured that he won the primaries and the election (in 2003).”
