Posted By: Odunayo Ogunmola, Ado-Ekiti Former Ekiti State Governors Segun Oni and Kayode Fayemi yesterday said the Assembly’s adoption of a report from the Office of Auditor-General is a joke.
Fayemi, who spoke through his media aide, Olayinka Oyebode, described the Ekiti lawmakers as “a bunch of jokers who should not be taken serious”.
He said: “What they have done is not worth responding to because they are a bunch of jokers.”
Oni, who also spoke through his media aide, Ayo Akinyemi, said Governor Ayo Fayose, who he described as the “unseen hand” in the legislators’ action, was jittery about his (Oni’s) popularity.
He said: “What Fayose is doing is political; he has seen the strength and popularity of Oni and that is why he is running from pillar to post to cast aspersion on his integrity.
“Oni left government in 2010 and we are in 2017, a period of seven years. The ploy is to vilify and blackmail opposition candidates who can upstage Fayose.
“Ordinarily, we would have ignored him, but we want to challenge him and his lackeys in the House of Assembly to lay the facts in public domain.
“Let them identify the people in particular who donated the $4,500 and the exact project to which it was tied. The position of oga (Oni) is that anybody with allegations against him should swear to an affidavit.”
