APC flag bearer for the Ekiti gubernatorial race, Dr. Kayode Feyemi, has responded to the governor Fayose on the allegations that he intends to build cattle colonies across the state if he won the election.
The Fayemi Campaign Organisation also accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of insincerity in his allegation that the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, intends to create cattle colonies across the state if he wins the July 14 poll.
The Fayemi Campaign organisation stated that Fayose is running a campaign of blackmail and lies instead of programmes to sell his candidate to voters.
According to a statement by the Director, Media and Publicity of the Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation, Wole Olujobi, Fayose is mischievously exploiting and politicising the herdsmen’s crisis across the nation to paint Fayemi as a backer of herdsmen in their deadly attacks that had claimed hundreds of lives. In his words:
“Fayose has been deceiving Ekiti people and indeed all Nigerians that Fayemi is a promoter of herdsmen’s activities and that he is ready to create cattle colonies as one of his principal programmes so that herdsmen can unleash terror on Ekiti people.
“By this misrepresentation, Ekiti people will be unwilling to vote for Fayemi whereas Fayose himself in his Executive Bill he signed into the law last year had approved the creation of cattle colonies across the state to solve herdsmen’s crisis.
“After Fayose signed the law establishing cattle colonies across the state, immediately he discovered that herdsmen crisis is a good point to nail Fayemi, he quickly lapsed into manipulating the alleged plan to create cattle colonies by the APC candidate to paint him black.”
The campaign organisation further stated that Fayose is governing Ekiti State like a foreman at a construction site.
Ekiti State has recently been in the spotlight following controversy trailing the Ekiti State governorship election when Governor Fayose accused the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC of planning to rig the up coming elections in favour of Dr Kayode Fayemi
