The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has asked his successor, Ayo Fayose, to study the hand- over note before passing comments on his administration.

Fayemi described the allegation raised by Fayose in his inaugural speech that the state owed N84bn debt as reckless.

In a telephone chat with Saturday PUNCH, Fayemi ‘s Commissioner for Information, Mr. Tayo Ekundayo, said that all credit facilities obtained by the administration were documented.

He explained that Fayemi approached the capital market in Lagos State to obtain N25bn loan, adding that the Federal Government owed Ekiti State about N20bn.

He said, “Fayose should study the hand-over note carefully before making comment on the debt profile of the state. I have been hearing that the debt profile of Ekiti State now stands at N84bn.

“I want to say that it is nothing near that figure.We have noticed that tendency in the past, but we have refused to join issues with him. It is too early for Fayose to be talking about us.

“He should understand that there is a difference between being a candidate of a party and an executive of a state.”

Ekundayo, however, said N14bn had been paid out of the N25bn debt, asking the new governor to settle down for governance rather than engaging in cheap propaganda.
