The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has challenged Governor Ayodele Fayose’s claim that the state is not gaining anything from the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government.
It said instances of the federal government’s assistance abound that should have lifted Ekiti people from their present sorry state if the governor had applied various financial aids by the federal government honestly.
Fayose had in a recent chat on the state-owned media said that the federal government has not rendered any assistance to Ekiti under Buhari.
He maintained that all the state’s debts were incurred by the administration of his predecessor, Dr Kayode Fayemi. He also said the loans taken by the last administration would be fully repaid in 2036.
