‘Ekiti didn’t receive refund on roads’
Source: The Nation ekiti.com News Section:  Ekiti Date: Friday, April 22, 2016


Special Assistant to Ekiti State Governor on Public Communications and New Media Lere Olayinka has said the state did not receive any refund on federal roads.

Olayinka challenged the Federal Government to release to the public evidence(s) of any refund on federal roads constructed/rehabilitated by the state, adding that: “Since Fayose assumed office, no kobo was paid to the Ekiti State government by the Federal Ministry of Works”.

He debunked the All Progressives Congress (APC’s) claim that N5. 8 billion was refundedto Ekiti State by the Federal Government for the rehabilitation of federal roads, including the Ado-Ifaki Road.

Olayinka said: “The Ado-Ifaki road was not even among the roads the Ministry of Works earmarked for refund because of non-compliance with Federal Government regulations on award of construction/rehabilitation of federal roads.”

He described the decision to increase Value Added Tax (VAT) as another vindication of Governor Ayo Fayose’s stance that the Federal Government was not coordinated.

“It is evident that for Nigeria to be saved from these Federal Government policy contradictions, more Nigerians must join the governor to speak out so as to keep the government on its toes.

“Fayose’s position that with the increase in electricity tariff, N50 stamp duty imposed on bank customers for money received into their accounts via electronic transfer, cash and cheques; petrol being sold for as high as N300 per litre, any increment in VAT will not be acceptable to Nigerians has now been vindicated.”
