Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi has expressed dismay over the level of rumour mongering among the people on his state of health and that of his deputy, Mrs Funmilayo Olayinka, who was rumoured to have resigned her appointment, urging them to desist from the act.
The governor, who stated this yesterday at the state secretariat of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Ado-Ekiti, further decried how the people, including members of his party that he was being carried in an air ambulance to the hospital for retreatment.
During the visit to the secretariat, where he met with the leaders of the party on the preparations for the 2014 governorship election, the governor donated two buses to women and Youth Wings of the party for smooth running of their programmes.
Fayemi was received by the party’s Chairman, Mr Jide Awe, who officially announced the Governor as the party’s flag-bearer of the party in 2014governorship elections, saying “it is only a fool that would change the winning team”.
Other party members at the event are: Deputy Chairman, Capt Dele Falusi, the Secretary, Barr Abiodun Ogunleye, the women Leader, Mrs Funke Owoseeni and other members of the State Working Committee .
While advising the people of the state to refrain from peddling rumour against his government, Fayemi described Ekiti as the “most prolific rumour mill in Africa”, and submitted that the situation was antithetical to the level of education Ekiti was known for.
