The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has challenged the governor-elect, Dr. Kayode
Fayemi to begin probe of his government now instead of waiting till October 16 that he will be sworn in.
The governor advised the governor-elect to seek legitimacy for his election first rather than embarking on a vendetta mission that would consume him.
Fayose through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said this in his reaction to Fayemi’s threat.
“It is obvious that he will be consumed in his vendetta mission and rather than grandstanding, Fayemi should first seek legitimacy for his stolen mandate,” he said.
“He (Fayemi) should stop living in the world where threat of probe scares people because we in the government of Fayose are not afraid of victimisation and vendetta that Fayemi is obviously coming with.”
Fayose described Fayemi as a beneficiary of a stolen mandate who is afraid to even come to the open to celebrate his false victory.
“Even yesterday (Wednesday) when he went to collect the certificate of the mandate that was snatched and handed to him by the powers that be in Abuja, he had to be protected by police helicopter and hundreds of armed policemen. One wonders how he is going to rule the people they forced him on.”
“If Fayemi is on vendetta mission, which is obvious that he is, he will first destroy himself because like Ekiti and its people survived him during his first tenure, the people will outlive him this time too.”
