Ado-Ekiti—The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has described Governor Ayodele Fayose’s opposition to the Federal Government’s request to take loan from China, as sabotage and a seditious conduct that must not be allowed to go unchallenged.
The party said President Muhammadu Buhari’s quest is in tandem with other countries of the world that are engaged in bilateral arrangements for development purposes.
Fayose had on Wednesday written to the government of China, urging President XI Jinping not to approve $2b loan to implement development component of the 2016 national budget
He sent the letter through his emissary to the Chinese Embassy in Abuja while he personally took a copy of the letter to Shanghai to be delivered to the Chinese President.
Faulting the governor’s action, the APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, regretted that the governor got himself busy spending Ekiti money on frivolities while workers’ salaries remained unpaid for four months.
He said “As we speak, doctors are on strike and Ekiti people are dying while the governor go about with the activities that will lead to evasion of justice in his several alleged criminal cases so that he can protect his questionable wealth across the world.”
