Ekiti PDP Alleges “Fayemi In Unholy Sale Of State Properties”Featured, Latest News Sunday, August 31st, 2014
Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised the alarm that valuable assets and properties of the state are being sold at give away prices by the outgoing Kayode Fayemi administration.
The party also alleged that the items are being sold to chieftains of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and cronies of the governor.
In a statement on Sunday by the State Publicity Secretary, Pastor Kola Oluwawole, in Ado-Ekiti, the PDP also accused some top officials in the state’s Housing Corporation and the Directorate of Lands and Planning of conniving with APC leaders and top functionaries of the administration of perpetrating the fraud.
The PDP added that the fraudulent sale of properties cut across those in the state, as well as some located in Abuja and Lagos.
It listed the affected properties to include pieces of land and houses at Irewolede Estate Phases I and II, Ado-Ekiti, as well as pieces of land and houses at Obasanjo Housing Estate, Ikere Road, Ado-Ekiti, while vehicles and state properties in Abuja and Lagos were not left out.
The PDP said, ” A plot of land at Irewolede Phase II whose official price is N1.2 million is now being sold to All Progressives Congress members at a very ridiculous price of N250,000, while the houses at Irewolede Phase I are being allocated to political appointees and Fayemi’s cronies at a give away price of N5 million instead of the N15 million being placed on the property by official valuer.”
The party added, “The same black market sale is being carried out on government lands at the Obasanjo Housing Estate along Ikere-Ekiti Road built during Dr Ayo Fayose’s first term as governor of Ekiti State in 2005.”
The PDP further noted that virtually all government vehicles both new and fairly used were being fraudulently auctioned at an unimaginable prices that could not be justified by any standard.
“We are compelled to raise this alarm because the outgoing government has not hidden its vengeance mission since losing the June 21 governorship election to our candidate, Dr Ayo Fayose, by choosing to pursue policies and actions that would be detrimental not only to the smooth take off of the incoming PDP government, but to the development of the state as a whole.
“It is pertinent to remind all the sons and daughters of Ekiti State that the government of the APC, which has some weeks to the expiration of its tenure, is without any element of doubt displaying all these disdainful characters and embarking on a mission of revenge because of its outright rejection at the poll without taking into consideration the adverse effects it will have on the generality of the people of the state and its long term repercussions even to members of the party that produced the failed government.
“While we believe in prosperity for all Ekiti people, it is incumbent on us as a party to alert the people who have shown great love to us by giving the mandate to our candidate, Dr Ayo Fayose, who is the Governor-Elect, on the danger of the retrogressive steps being taken by the Fayemi administration aimed at bringing the state on its knees before the APC government will bow out.”
The PDP noted that in view of the developments, it had decided that all the atrocities and bad policies would be revisited by the incoming government of Dr Ayo Fayose.
It warned beneficiaries of such fraudulent and insincere transactions to see such as a greek gift laced with poison and one that would not last.
