Fayose Signs N9.9bn Supplementary Budget Into Law

FayoseGovernor Oyodele Fayose of Ekiti State

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Friday signed the 2018 supplementary budget of N9.9bn into law.

Fayose at the event attended by Speaker Kola Oluwawole and some members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, for questioning the budget.

“It is amusing to hear that Dr Kayode Fayemi said the revised budget being signed today was unnecessary. He (Fayemi) signed his own on September 15, 2014, exactly a month to his leaving office, now I’m signing my own on September 14. They should keep quiet and stop crying wolf, I’m still the governor.

“It is laughable that Fayemi won’t stop at anything to blackmail me even when he had to go to a ridiculous level.”

“This revised budget being signed today September 14, 2018, Fayemi did sign the same kind of budget on September 15, 2014, when he had less than a month to leave office. Maybe he has forgotten, but Ekiti people are not suffering from dementia and are students of history.

“The Clerk of the House in 2014 when Fayemi signed his revised budget, Mr Tola Esan is still the clerk and he is here today. We are not robots and when there are things to attend to we will still do that before we leave office.

“When Fayemi finally resumes, he can turn the state upside down, history will record him.”

Accusing President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC of taking hypocrisy to a ridiculous height in governance, Fayose said he had acted within the law by sending the budget to the assembly for appropriation.

“They are confusing Nigeria, confusing the public, I don’t know the level they have taken hypocrisy to.

“Recently President Buhari paid for fighter jets from excess crude account without appropriation, and heaven did not fall. This is sheer hypocrisy.”
