News Investigators/ The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Political Affairs, Babafemi Ojudu, has berated the governor Kayode Fayemi-led government in Ekiti sate, accusing it of inaction and lost of focus thereby depriving the state of good governance.
Mr. Ojudu, a former senator and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) spoke to journalists on the telephone Wednesday.
The S.A Politics to the President also accused Mr. Fayemi of unilateral rule over the party in the state, calling him a “puppeteer”.
“They have not called any meeting of leaders of the party. No meeting, no caucus, I don’t know how one man can run a show of the party. He (Fayemi) is a puppeteer. He beats the drum and others just dance to it,” Mr. Ojudu said.
Adding: “Where is the focus on the people now? Is it roads the government is constructing? Is it providing employment? Is it providing foods? Where is the governance? I want you to do a search on Google and tell me where the projects are in Ekiti.”
Reacting, the Senior Special Assistant to the governor Fayemi on Public Communications, Segun Dipe, said there was good governance in Ekiti contrary to Mr. Ojudu’s assertion.
“Ojudu is sounding like people are claiming he is,” he said, adding that he is guilty of what people are accusing him of. “We believe his appointment can’t be divorced from being an Ekiti man. Yes, Senator Ojudu doesn’t come home and doesn’t recognise Ekiti at the moment.
“What you don’t understand you will always see fault in it. For now, Ojudu will always see the negative side because he is already a stranger to the people and the party,” Mr. Dipe said.
