The former minister of Works (State), Prince Dayo Adeyeye has pointed an accusing fingers at the Executive governor of Ekiti for the recent upsurge of violence across the state.
In a statement released by his media aide, Niyi Ojo, he expressed sadness on the sadness on the killing of an All Progressives Congress (APC)
member, William Ayegoro and destruction of campaign billboards of the
party’s candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
“Governor Ayo Fayose should be held responsible for the upsurge in violence ahead of the July 14 governorship poll”, Former Minister of State for Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has stated.
According to Adeyeye, Fayose has been heating up the polity by issuing what he called, “threatening statements against perceived
enemies of his administration” and his anointed candidate, Prof.
The former minister also accused Fayose of gagging traditional rulers in the state and sacking civil servants and appointees, who are deemed to be supporting the opposition on trumped up charges.
Adeyeye said: “Fayose, should be held responsible for the present
state of insecurity in the state. People who are familiar with his
antics, cannot sleep with their two eyes closed anymore.
“He was chased out in his first time in office, when he was imposed on
the people of Ekiti State by the then President Olusegun Obasanjo.
This second time, he told people that he was a changed person, but he
is now worst.
“He was impeached because of violence in his term in office, even some
of the cases that include murder cases are still in court. A couple of
days ago, an APC supporter was killed. Two days before, the
billboards of Dr Fayemi were destroyed in Ikere Ekiti.
“If you are looking for who is behind all these violence, look in the
direction of Fayose.
“Fayose is so intolerant. In 2014, he was holding open meetings with
Civil Servants in the state canvassing for their support and none of
them was molested, nobody issues threats to sack them.
“However, I call on those being molested or victimized, who are afraid
and brightly concerned about their future, that help is on the way.
They should bear with the situation now, because it would soon be
“Victory is assured for APC on July 14. They shall be restored to
those stations immediately after the elections, the Pharaoh that you
see today, you shall see no more.”
