APC denies Fayose’s claims on Conditional Cash Transfer

.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has debunked Governor Ayodele Fayose’s claim that the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programme was part of his “stomach infrastructure” programme.

The APC accused Fayose of ignoring due process in the award of contracts, saying he had turned himself into a “despotic sole administrator”.

In a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, the party described Fayose’s claim of ownership of the CCT as dishonest.

It said: “The truth of the matter is that the CCT, which is a joint programme of the government and the MDGs, was initiated by the Kayode Fayemi administration a year ago.

“There were 2,250 beneficiaries in Ise/Orun, Ikere, Irepodun/Ifelodun, Ilejemeje and Ido/Osi local governments cutting across 450 households.

“Olatunbosun said the money spent on the programme was N375 million of which Ekiti contributed N187.5 million; the Federal Government paid the balance.

“The programme, which was to achieve the Universal Primary Education, Gender Equality and Women Empowerment, was coordinated by the Office of the Special Adviser on MDGs.

“The first batch of 2,250 received N5,000 monthly for one year and a phone with N100,000 after one year to start an agriculture related business.”

The APC said the governor awarded the MDGs contracts worth N1.2 billion and ignored the due process observed by the Fayemi administration in the selection of contractors.

Fayose awarded a N200million contract for the painting of the governor’s office to his brother.

The party said: “We expect the governor to give credit to his predecessor for starting the CCT programme, which he inherited and wanted to continue .

“It is the height of deceit for Fayose to present the CCT programme to unsuspecting Ekiti people as one of his stomach infrastructure programme whereas as many as 2,250 women have benefited in the last one year.

“Fayose wrongly claimed ownership of another MDGs programme, CGS LGA Track, which was put in place by the Fayemi administration, which paid the state’s counterpart funding.

“The N1.2 billion involved was contributed by the federal, state and local governments for projects in three local governments yet, Fayose claimed he met no money in all government accounts during his inauguration.

“He has reduced Ekiti people to playthings which can be manipulated at will. He has been telling everyone that he has employed many Ekiti indigenes when in actual fact, they are being employed by consultants outside the government.

“We advise Governor Fayose to run an open administration founded on truth and transparency.”
