Leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ado-Ekiti Local Government Area of Ekiti State have exonerated the current government led by President Muhammadu Buhari from the ongoing economic recession in the country.
The party leaders, who said the current economic mess in Nigeria was caused by the Peoples Democratic Party, asked the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to make sure that all stolen funds and assets of the state were recovered.
They made this appeal during their monthly meeting at Ward Five in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday
Addressing members during the meeting, a chieftain of the party, Faleye Rotimi, said the people of the state were happy with the EFCC’s probe of Fayose, saying that all illicit funds traced to the governor and his appointees must be recovered.
Ayodele said: “We APC members are happy with EFCC for investigating Fayose, what is happening to our treasury? What is happening to our funds? Fayose must face the music for the way he has been handling our funds and the arms funds diverted to his campaign.”
On his part, a former Chairman of the State Sports Council, Ade Adetola, called for the understanding of Nigerians, noting that the 16 years of alleged destruction of the economy by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration cannot be rectified within two years by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Ward Chairman, Olumide Ajibade said the ongoing economic recession was not caused by Buhari but by “unprecedented corruption wreaked on Nigerians by the PDP government”, urging Nigerians to repose their confidence on the President.
He described the PDP administration in the state as “non-responsive and irresponsible to the welfare of Ekiti people”, adding that the move to install the people’s government led by the APC had just commenced.
Party leaders who attended the meeting include former Ekiti House of Assembly Speaker, Femi Bamisile, former House of Assembly member, Tope Olanipekun, former Commissioner for Culture, Alhaji Jinadu Ayodele, ward and local government executives.(DailyPost)
