Outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose and the Governor elect, Kayode Fayemi are trading words over allegations bordering on sales of some state government property including Oja Oba ultra modern market and some landed property.
Fayemi had recently through a public notice issued on his behalf by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode issued a public notice urging the public to beware moves by the out going governor to dispose of some valuable properties of Ekiti state government through shady arrangements.
Responding to the allegation, Fayose said that he is still the governor of the state legitimately and that Fayemi should wait for his time, which commences in October 16.
“I am still the governor of Ekiti state till October 15 legitimately. He is only ranting; he should wait for his time. Somebody stole a mandate and he is still claiming to have a mandate. Was he the one that built the market? I built it and I am allocating it. The people will have legal backing to protect them. They want to come and give it to their cronies. I will do my legitimate job until the last day of my departure. Even if I want to sell Ekiti property, I am still the Governor here.”
