Following the report where the Anglican Bishop, Rev. Christopher Omotunde of the Diocese of Ekiti, the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion said Ekiti’s progress was stunted because Fayose’s last four years in Ekiti state is a waste. Read the report HERE.
Ayodele Fayose who is the former Governor of Ekiti State, yesterday regained his freedom after meeting up with the terms of his bail conditions, and he has reacted to what Rev. Christopher Omotunde of the Diocese of Ekiti, the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, said about him and his tenure.
According to Fayose, through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, said only a cleric trying to justify the blatant rigging of the last Ekiti State governorship election by the All Progressives Congress (APC) would describe the physical transformation of Ekiti by the Fayose administration as a waste.
He said that his tenure immensely benefitted the people of the state and advised the Anglican Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Rt. Rev. Christopher Omotunde, to remove his cassock and mount the soapbox so that the whole world would know that he has joined politics. He said:
“Even the blind feel the good works of Fayose and perhaps Bishop Omotunde and the likes need to change their eyeglasses to see well.
“The records of the Fayose administration are there for all to see. It organized an education summit that led to great improvement in education in the state. Ekiti State came first back-to-back in NECO exams and we also did well in WAEC. These are public institutions and the records are there for Omotunde to peruse.
“The Fayose administration built the first flyover in the state and it passes beside Omotunde’s church. One wonders if the bishop closes his eyes whenever he drives or passes through that place. If he does not, we pray that God opens his spiritual eyes.
“The Fayose government built a new high court complex, a new Governor’s Office, a new Oja’ba Market; dualized roads in Ise, Emure, Ikole, Omuo, Ijero, and Efon”.
Adelusi then said Fayose does not owe the cleric any apology for criticizing the obnoxious policies and indecisions of the President, which have brought untold suffering on Nigerians.
