Fayose: APC will fail woefully in the July 14

Fayose: Ekiti APC is a house divided against itself, it will fail woefully on July 14

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the violence that marred today’s All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship primary election in the State as shameful and a clear indication that “the APC will fail woefully in the July 14 governorship election because apart from its rejection be Ekiti people, the party has become a house divided against that can never hold.”

Governor Fayose, who reacted through his Special Assistant on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said; “The whole world can now see the so-called progressives. Ordinary primary election, they can’t hold. It is shameful!”

He said “if the party could be this violent during their own primary election, won’t they
do worse things during the election proper?

“INEC should therefore be mindful of being used to manipulate the July 14 election in favour of APC because the party has today, lost the election by the open advertisement of its anti-democratic credentials.”

Governor Fayose, who reiterated that APC was a party of hypocrites and anti-democratic elements, masquerading as progressives, added that “A party, who uses guns and machetes to settle minor political disagreements among its members as done in Ado Ekiti today, in the full glare of the public, will use grenades and missiles to confront inter-party issues.”

Gov. Fayose addresses the people of Ekiti for the New Year


Good people of Ekiti State,

I give thanks to the Almighty God for conducing this opportunity for me to address you on this significant milestone of a New Year 2018.
This milestone is significant to me, as you are aware, that this will be my last New Year address to you as Governor of Ekiti State. To God be the glory now and forever more.

I am grateful to you my good people of Ekiti State for giving me the rare opportunity to govern this State for a second term. It has afforded me the opportunity to consolidate on the achievements of the past and correct some erroneous impressions and deliberate mischiefs peddled against me towards the twilight of my first coming.

I thank our Royal Highnesses, Elder Statesmen, Community and Religious Leaders, Market Women, Artisans, Okada Riders, Members of the Transport Union who turned out enmasse to vote for me in the election that produced me as Governor, a second time, after eight years of forced exit.

I thank the Public Service, members of the Organized Private Sector, the Legislative arm of government, members of the State Executive Council and indeed the Judiciary.

I thank the Youth, Students and of course children for their demonstration of love and support for me as was witnessed during the last few weeks when I went round the State to give out Christmas and New Year gifts to our people.

In not too distant future, I hope to embark on a farewell tour of our State, to thank you all for the priviledge given to me to lead you.

My dear people, I have a sense of fulfillment as I proceed to complete the two tenures of my mandate. God has helped me to justify the huge confidence reposed in me.

I have opened up the horizon of Ekiti State from a rustic countryside to an emerging urban centre in the provisions of infrastructure notably in road construction, public buildings and socio economic transformation generally.

During my first tenure in office, I started the dualization of the Ado-Ekiti major motor ways. My government, during this second term, has been able to extend the dualization of roads to most of our Local Government headquarters.

The icing on the cake is the construction of the multibillion Naira 1.3km Ado-Ekiti overhead carriage which now links Fajuyi park, flying over the Okesa market to the Ojumose road axial.

I am also happy to remark that the public building projects which we started during my first tenure in places like the Government House, the State Secretariat and the Trade Fair Arena, to mention but a few, have continued with a new Governor’s office, a befitting complex for the Judiciary and a new residential apartment for the Speaker of the House of Assembly. My Government will complete these projects including the ultra-modern market in Ado-Ekiti.

The Adunni Olayinka Multipurpose Women Development Centre was built during this second tenure by my government to provide guidance and counseling and other support services for women and children.

We decided to name the edifice after a Former Deputy Governor produced by an opposition party to underscore our commitment to politics without bitterness.

Aside these monumental infrastructural projects, my government has also undertaken far-reaching human and human capital development programmes which has impacted positively as could be seen in recent rankings of Ekiti State performances in competitive national Examinations and other human development indexes. For instance, our State recorded the first position consecutively in 2016 and 2017 in the National Examination Council (NECO) assessments for Secondary Schools in Nigeria.

I have asked that these landmark achievements be put together in a compendium which shall be presented to the people of our State at the point of my exit.

On the other hand, my government has had a fair share of moments of challenges and travails. I should also thank my adversaries, including my virulent critics for expressing their views and perspectives on my person, my style and on my government.

I consider this as part of nation building as we cannot have same views and attitudes on issues of development and progress.

I have seen all attacks, jibes and vituperations as rights of individuals and groups to express themselves as guaranteed by the Nigeria Constitution.

Consequently, I owe neither grudge nor malice against anyone. My government had not for once intimidated, harassed or used the instrument of State against any real or perceived opponents. Instead, I have always believed in dialogue and the inclusion of all in governance.

Fellow citizens, the last few years of this government had not been very smooth. Ekiti State was not immuned from the consequences of the national economic recession besetting our country.

This together with the huge debt burden which we inherited from the administration of Governor Former Kayode Fayemi actually made it very difficult for us to meet up with certain basic obligations particularly in the payment of workers remunerations. We have however tried our best within the limits of available resources.

I like to put it on record that my administration did not commit this State to any indebtedness despite the financial challenges that confronted us. Let me also state that the Federal Government made available, a facility of N10 billion to each State of the Federation, for capital development.

This had been netted against our equitable shares from the Excess Crude Account (ECA). I am happy to state that the portion for Ekiti State had been judiciously deployed for monumental capital development projects including the Ado-Ekiti overhead road, the new Ado market among others.

We ran an open government by which the cross section of the populace is involved in the mobilisation and expenditure of public funds.

In the New Year, we shall continue in that same style and redouble our efforts as I do not want to leave Ekiti Government House as debtor of salaries.

I am not also unmindful of the yearnings and aspirations of our people in other arrears of government responsibilities but we can only do one thing at a time. The insufficiency of today will turn out to be abundance of tomorrow if we can improve on our efforts and dedication. Let us keep hope alive and continue to support government in all its endeavours.

During the out-going year, we took the bull by the horn by confronting headlong, security issues that confronted our State especially the menaces of abductors, kidnappers and cultists. Also we tackled the nefarious activities of cattle rearers. We have put in place appropriate legal and structural frameworks to silence those anti-social behaviours permanently. We have made significant progress along these lines.

I am sure that history and posterity will remember us for good in all these strides.

Good people of Ekiti State, let us enter the New Year with joy and gratitude to God. Let us renew our faith and hope in a better tomorrow. The greatest thing that has happened to us is the identity that we have in a State of our own.

Ekiti has been led by different leaders and Political Parties but the people remain the common denominator and will be able to discern their friends from pretenders. Now I belief you know the true patriots and lovers of this State.

It is time for us to have continuity and stability at the political front. We have lots of lessons to learn from Lagos State which has put its economic endowment in the hands of competent and stable managers over time, using the same political platform.

It is certain that continuity has the capacity to secure for us landmark and sustainable development.

I urge you all to support me and my party – the Peoples Democratic Party – to transit and produce the next leadership for this State. Economic and Social Development are veritable outcomes of very sound, consistent and stable political superstructure.

Once again, I thank you all for the journey so far while I look forward for more cooperation from you in the New Year.

Thank you, happy New Year and May God bless us all.

Lassa fever in Ekiti; student affected

By Muyiwa Adeyemi

A female student nurse at the Federal Teaching Hospital (FETHI) Ido Ekiti, Ekiti State at the weekend tested positive for the dreaded Lassa Fever infection.

The Commissioner for Health, Dr Olurotimi Ojo, who disclosed the first case of the infection in the state on Monday at the Stakeholders meeting on Lassa Fever, said the patient is currently being isolated at the hospital, while efforts were being made by experts to effect that she survives.

The Commissioner said that he had spoken with the Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the hospital, Dr Lawrence Ayodele, who confirmed that the patient is a student of the Teaching Hospital.

Dr Ojo, who revealed that the disease has been endemic, particularly in Borno State since 1969, said the patient was said to have been treated for Malaria and Typhoid fever with high profile antibiotics, but she did not respond to treatment.

He said the situation had given room for suspicion and further diagnostic steps, where the patient was said to have been tested positive to the disease.

He said, “Over the weekend, the state had confirmed a case of Lassa fever that is being managed at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Ido Ekiti. The patient is stable and had commenced treatment.

“Immediately the patient was diagnosed and confirmed, the management began the process of contact tracing. Once you have an index case, there is tendency of having a primary case and possible spread and this could be dangerous.

“Though, the doctors are handling the situation and monitoring the situation very closely . So, nobody has been quarantined after the contact tracing”, he said.

Ojo added that the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose had already prepared an isolated ward within the premises of Oba Adejugbe General Hospital, Ado Ekiti, even before the breakout of the disease in the State.

“However, the situation is being curtailed from efforts from the State government in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health and World Health Organisation (WHO), through the office of the national centre for disease control.

“The governor is also embarking on public and town-to-town sensitization about Lassa fever through the airing of jingles on the state broadcasting corporation and distribution of IEC materials to the people”.

He advised the people of the state to take precautionary measures and refrain from taking risk that can lead to the contact or spread of the disease.
