Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has suspended four government officials for allegedly mismanag ing state-owned Broiler Processing Facility in Erifun, Ado-Ekiti and livestock pens.
He set up a panel to look into the activities of the officials and how they managed government utilities.
In a statement yesterday by the Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, Fayose gave the directive when he visited the broiler processing facility and the livestock pens.
The governor lamented that barely three years after the inauguration of the facility, the cooling system and the generator had been vandalised.
He condemned the poor attitude of the officers in charge of the place and ordered their suspension.
Fayose was angry the pens were given out to individuals, who remit nothing to government’s coffers.
“This is a bad attitude we must stop. Public facilities are provided through the use of pubic funds and must be used judiciously. Imagine a place built and inaugurated about three years ago being in this sorry state.”
