The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has raised the alarm that the All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the State has booked all available space in hotels by paying over N100 million public fund for the month of June this year
According to a statement issued by the Director General of Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation (AFCO), Chief Dipo Anisulowo in Ado Ekiti Monday, the governorship candidate disclosed that the State Government has committed the sum of N100million public fund to book for the space in the hotels to the disadvantage of other political parties
The campaign organization equally alleged that the state government is owing the hoteliers a substantial sum of money, describing the government’s action as admittance of fear
Fayose said it was wicked for the State Government that refused to pay its hotel bills for over six months to have suddenly realised hat it needed to pay over N100 million to book hotels just because of election.
The PDP candidate said all attempts to circumvent the will of Ekiti people by the APC government will fail,
“If they like, let them pay for all hotel rooms in Ekiti, let them pay for all farmlands and even vacant residential accommodations in Ekiti, they won’t survive defeat on June 21.”
“Let all outstandings being owed our hotel owners by the APC evil government be paid first.
“And if Governor Kayode Fayemi and those that are using the June 21 election to siphon Ekiti funds like, let them go beyond the booking of all hotel rooms in Ekiti. Let them also book all roads in the State so that no one can be able to use the roads between now and June 21.
“They can also go a step further in the demonstration of their wickedness and desperation by booking the air that we breathe so that no one will be able to breathe because of the June 21 election.
“Whatever devilish actions that they take between now and June 21, they cannot escape defeat in the election because Ekiti people are tired of their government of deceit.”
But the APC’s Director of Publicity in the state, Mr Segun Dipe has dismissed the allegation,describing it as “non issue”
