Ekiti State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC), for adopting Governor Ayo Fayose’s concept of stomach infrastructure, saying; “it is hypocrisy at its peak to do what you abuse someone else for doing.”
The State Secretary of the party, Dr Tope Aluko , said in a statement issued on Monday, that the Fayose led government would never shy away from the people’s welfare.
He said Governor Fayose’s concept of stomach infrastructure had been further justified by its adoption by the APC National Leader and former governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Tinubu, who personally distributed 2,000 bags of rice, vegetable oil, sugar and a little cash gift to people from various parts of Lagos State on Sunday.
Aluko said; “They abuse us for providing immediate succor for our people. They described stomach infrastructure as an insult to Ekiti people. They said it does not add value to the people; it diminishes their self-esteem, it diminishes their sense of self-worth and it denigrates what politics ought to be about.
“However, their party leader in Lagos on Sunday, adopted the same concept of stomach infrastructure by personally sharing food items to people.
“After condemning the concept, isn’t it rather too late that the APC people are just realizing that poverty should be addressed by providing immediate succor because poverty is poverty; it knows no religion and it has no tribal mark; and it affects everyone of us?”
Speaking further, Aluko said; “Governor Fayose will continue to run a welfarist government. He will continue to identify with the masses by putting food on their tables.
“Most importantly, Governor Fayose will provide gainful employments for the youths and assist traders with soft loans so that they can be able to feed themselves.”
