Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Affairs, Babafemi Ojudu, has knocked the Ekiti state Governor, Kayode Fayemi, for non-performance in office.
Ojudu in a telephone interview with journalists in Ado-Ekiti on Wednesday said the Fayemi administration has not made any impact on the lives of the people of the state since coming into office.
“Where is the focus on the people now? Is it roads the government is constructing? Is it providing employment? Is it providing foods? Where is the governance? I want you to do a search on google and tell me where the projects are.
“Take Borno and also Ekiti. Look at what Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, has done since he was sworn in till today and then take a look at what Ekiti governor has done since he was sworn in. Let us compare the two, when they tell you there is no money, is Zulum in charge of the Central Bank or he is receiving more than what Ekiti is being given?
“What is the population of Borno and what is the population of Ekiti State? You could take three Ekiti States out of Borno. Compare the ratio of the population of Borno to what is going there and the ratio of our population and what is coming here,” Ojudu said.
“They have not call any meeting of leaders of the party. No meeting, no caucus, I don’t know how one man can run a show of the party. He is a puppeteer. He beats the drum and others just dance to it” he added.
However, the Governor who responded through his Special Assistant on Media and Public Communication, Segun Dipe, said the presidential aide has amnesia.
“Ojudu is guilty of what people is accusing him of. We believe his appointment cannot be divorced from being an Ekiti man.
“What you don’t understand you will always see fault in it. For now, he is excused from seeing the negative side because he is already a stranger and alien to the people and the party.
“He is practising deliberate amnesia. He chooses to forget what he wants to forget and remembers what he wants to remember. In the long run, there is governance and there is APC in Ekiti State,” he said.
