Ekiti APC, PDP fight over fresh bailout request
Written by Morenike Adebayo on June 27, 2016
The Ekiti State All Progressive Congress and a faction of the Peoples Democratic Party loyal to Governor Ayodele Fayose have traded blames over the application for fresh bail out from Federal Government. The PDP faction in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Jackson Adebayo, alleged that the APC had written a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari to block Ekiti from getting the proposed fresh bailout to states. Adebayo described the APC petition as “horrible and an open expression of hatred for the people of Ekiti State especially the workers.”
But denying the allegation, the APC in a statement by its state Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said the blackmail was to set the workers against its leaders. The party advised the governor to come clean that he could not meet the conditions set by the Federal Government to be qualified for another bailout.
