All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State has advised Governor Ayodele Fayose to focus on governance of the state instead of busying himself with hate campaigns ahead of the March 28 presidential election.
APC state Publicity Secretary, Honourable Taiwo Olatunbosun, advised the governor against wasting Ekiti people’s money on campaign against its presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, including hiring agents trailing Buhari around the world, saying “it is criminal to be spending the state’s resources in furtherance of personal ambition and safety.”
Olatunbosun said in a statement in Ado Ekiti yesterday that “Governor Fayose is taking his hate campaigns against General Buhari to the level of personal agenda far and above the collective agenda of Ekiti people for good governance and development of the state.
“If Fayose had taken the issues of development seriously as he is doing in his hate campaign against Buhari, the effects could have been felt in many areas that are germane to the state’s development,” Olatubosun said.
The APC accused the governor of diverting the attention of Nigerians from his alleged fraudulent victory as revealed in the audio tape leak. It said the revelations in the tape would not be eclipsed by the governor’s anti-Buhari campaign antics, stressing that the money the governor was spending in his hate campaign could have been channeled towards productive activities for the benefit of Ekiti people.
The APC also berated the governor for lack of focus on development issues, stressing that for the past four months, he had busied himself with debts profile of the state, while not forthcoming on the balances and refunds made to the state by the Federal Government.
