Immediate past Governor of Ekiti state, Dr Kayode Fayemi has implored new Governor, Ayodele Fayose to take time to study his handover notes before passing any comments on the state’s debt profile.
Fayemi denied the insinuation that he left a debt of N84b. The former Governor, clarified that he only took a N25billion bond, out of which N14 billion of the loan had been paid back, leaving a balance of N11 billion.
In a telephone conversation with journalists in Ado-Ekiti on Friday, Fayemi’s Commissioner for Information, Mr Tayo Ekundayo, said: “Fayose should study the handing over note carefully before making unnecessary noise about the debt profile of Ekiti. I have been hearing them saying that the debt profile of Ekiti State now stands at N84 billion”
“I want to say that it is nothing near that figure .We have noticed that tendency in the past but we have refused to join issues with him .It is too early for Fayose to be talking about us. He should understand that there is difference between being a candidate of a party and executive of a state”
“Fayose should know that he has assumed a new status now which is quite different from where he was before now .What I will advise him to do now is to settle down and see how he would improve on the legacies of Kayode Fayemi Administration”, Ekundayo said.
