Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has said it would drag the immediate governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission over the N400 million for the rehabilitation of Ado – Akure Road.
This is following the comment made last week by the former governor that the Ado – Akure Road had become a death trap.
The fund was earmarked by the current governor of the state, Dr Kayode Fayemi during his first term.
Speaking at a press conference in Ado Ekiti, APC State Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, said that Fayose was instrumental to the deplorable state of the Ado –Akure Road.
“Fayose must explain why he terminated Ado-Akure Road contract. The public wants to know whether he terminated that contract for Afao Road, because the Ado-Akure Road is very germane to our economy in Ekiti.
“The APC, as a responsible and patriotic party, will drag the former governor to the EFCC if he fails to give a satisfactory explanation about the money.
“Ekiti State Government, Ondo State Government, the African Development Bank, and the Federal Government have shown interest to reconstruct the road. Why was the former governor now lamenting? We were able to decode that he had an ulterior motive, which was to dent the image of Governor Fayemi.
“Why would a person who was responsible for the deplorable state of the road now be lamenting? We are baffled by this? He should tell us where the money went rather than lamenting. Our people must be careful with the politics Fayose was playing,” he said.
