Fayose is a 419 – Dayo Adeyeye


Former Minister of State for Works and National Publicity Director, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dayo Adeyeye, in a veiled comment hinted that Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, is a fraudster.

Adeyeye, now a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress, APC, following his defection to the ruling party in the run to Ekiti State governorship election held in July, this year, dropped the hint in an interview with Vanguard when reacting to question posed to him about Fayose’s administration ongoing employment in the state.

“He ran a government that was based on falsehood throughout and he did not believe in law and order and accountability. He was running a personalised government. He held no state executive council meeting for four years, it was a one-man show.

“When he said he was recruiting into the local government and the state civil service and he was asking them to collect forms with either N500 or N1000 and also to collect indigeneship certificates in the local governments for about N3000. If you add all these, it cost an applicant almost N4000 to successfully apply for the non-existing job.

“He collected all this money before the election. Don’t forget when he first came into government in 2014, he announced the so-called recruitment exercise which no one saw the result till today and applicants were forced to cough out N10000 each for employment forms. This is a man that will collect money from the poorest of the poor without conscience. This latest one is to deceive masses and scam them of their little resources,” the ex-minister told the paper.
