Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has told the Governor-elect of the state, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, that he remains governor of the state until his tenure expires on October 16, 2018 and as such has the right to take actions in exercise of his duties, including employments, until that day.
Fayose said this in response to the warning issued by Fayemi over plans by the governor to embark on employments meant to cripple the incoming administration.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said: “We have watched with amusement the way and manner the beneficiaries of the Ekiti electoral robbery have been running their mouths in the last few days and we have opted to react to their advertisements of expertise in political comedy.
“The last time that we checked, Dr. Peter Ayodele Fayose was still the governor of Ekiti State and he remains the governor till October 16, 2018.
“Governor Fayose will carry out all the functions of his office till October 16 and if there is need to employ workers, he will do so legally and no one can prevent him.
“This is more so that the process of employing 2,000 workers had commenced even before the July 14 election.
“Therefore, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and his team of desperately ignorant team should wait till October 16 before kicking off their usual anti people policies.
“Also, we advice Fayemi and his men to rather concentrate on how to defend the false electoral victory awarded to them by the powers that be in Abuja instead of this daily display of idiocy.”
