The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has signed the 2018 supplementary budget of N9.9bn into law.
Ayo Fayose while signing the bill spite the Governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, for questioning the budget.
“It is amusing to hear that Dr Kayode Fayemi said the revised budget being signed today was unnecessary. He (Fayemi) signed his own on September 15, 2014, exactly a month to his leaving office, now I’m signing my own on September 14. They should keep quiet and stop crying wolf, I’m still the governor,”” said Fayose.
“It is laughable that Fayemi won’t stop at anything to blackmail me even when he had to go to a ridiculous level.”
“This revised budget being signed today September 14, 2018, Fayemi did sign the same kind of budget on September 15, 2014, when he had less than a month to leave office. Maybe he has forgotten, but Ekiti people are not suffering from dementia and are students of history.
“The Clerk of the House in 2014 when Fayemi signed his revised budget, Mr Tola Esan is still the clerk and he is here today. We are not robots and when there are things to attend to we will still do that before we leave office.
“When Fayemi finally resumes, he can turn the state upside down, history will record him.”
