Immediate Past Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has been accused of spending N100m on his bedroom and that of his wife in the newly built Ekiti State Government House.

The accusation was made in a statement released yesterday by his successor, Gov. Ayodele Fayose’s Special Assistant on Information and Social Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka.

In the statement titled “N3.3bn new Government House Is Fayemi’s Show of Wickedness To Ekiti People,” Fayose said Fayemi was completely insensitive to the economic plight of the Ekiti people.ekiti govt house 2.

The statement reads, “Between Fayemi and his wife, what was spent on their bedrooms, toilets and bathrooms will be in the region of N100m.

“How can a responsible government use borrowed funds to provide this kind of luxury for the governor and his family alone in a state where a lot of people cannot afford to feed more than once in a day?

“People should ask the former governor what was really wrong with the abandoned governor’s lodge used by his (Fayemi) predecessors?

“Shouldn’t such funds expended on the hilltop edifice have been used to resuscitate the moribund textile factory in Ado-Ekiti that was turned to lock-up shops to provide employment for our teeming youths?

“Also, was Fayemi living in that manner of opulence before he became governor? Was he sleeping on a body-massaging bed and bathing in an electric-controlled Jacuzzi?fayose

“Here is Fayemi, who could not pay workers salaries, owing them two-month salaries before he left. A Fayemi, who out of sheer wickedness refused to pay pensioners N2.4bn pension and gratuities; N400m workers leave bonus, N700m subventions to parastatals and tertiary institutions and remit N2.4bn four months’ cooperative society’s deductions from workers salaries preferring to use N3.3bn borrowed funds to provide luxury for himself, his wife and children alone.

“This is wickedness!’’
