It Is Very Irresponsible Of You To Make A N250m Christmas Trip To Dubai, Ekiti APC Tells Fayose

The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has accused the
Governor of the State, Ayodele Fayose of stashing away money belonging to the
state in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The Publicity Secretary of the
party, Taiwo Olatunbosun, in a statement, described Fayose’s Sunday trip to
Dubai as the height of insensitivity and wickedness by a governor who always
called himself the “people’s governor.”
“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 money running into
millions for the remaining nine was pocketed by the governor.
“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. Continue…

“Fayose just visited local governments where he lied to the
workers that the state government is broke whereas he has appropriated N250m
for his needless trip and those of ghost aides after setting aside another
N250m for his monthly personal security vote.
“This is a governor who, few days ago, accused his
colleagues of extravagant spending through foreign trips even though he himself
is the greatest culprit. This confirms our allegation that Governor Fayose is
an incorrigible con artist that ever lives.”
“Fayose again conned Ekiti workers by paying 10 per cent of
their monthly basic salary which translated to about N700 (seven hundred naira)
to most workers while he shamelessly boasted that he had paid workers’ bonus,”
he said.
The APC called on the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences
Commission to invite the state Commissioner for Finance, its Accountant General
and the Auditor General for interrogation on how the finances of the state were
However, the Commissioner for Information, Mr. Lanre
Ogunsuyi, dispelled the allegation saying it was baseless.
“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.
“The APC is talking, having lost all relevance. Every worker
in Ekiti has been paid the 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.
“The bailout was expended as instructed by the CBN. It is
left for the CBN through its audit mechanism to say anything in response to
what the APC has said. They are campaigning to gain some relevance they have

“They should send their petition to the EFCC, because they
are the one that has power to probe and indict,” he said.
