Happening now in Ado Ekiti, Mr Sola Elesin, APC State Deputy Chairman this morning led some Fayemi loyalists in Ado LG to return the Covid -19 Rice donated by Senator Babafemi Ojudu to the wards in Ekiti state since March.
Fayemi’s boys led by Sola Elesin went to drop 13 bags of 25kg rice in front of Sen Babafemi Ojudu’s gate in Ado Ekiti at about 10.30 am today.
It is sheer pettiness at play, if the effort of saving the lives of Ekiti APC Party members especially the Constituency of Senator Babafemi Ojudu against hunger during the lockdown, can be turned to a melodrama just to score cheap political point by ordering the Party EXCOS loyal to GOV. Kayode Fayemi to return part of the bags of rice brought since March, 2020 this morning Monday 22, June 2020.
This in their shallow mindedness, is to replace the Rice, Beans and Semovita, Sen. Babafemi Ojudu sent to all the wards in Ekiti Central District in the last week of March as Covid palliatives.
We have it on good authority that Fayemi had ordered his people to return the rice that was distributed in March which must have been consumed, by replacing the 250 bags of Farm-Ally packaged rice with 13 bags of Mama Gold rice.
We wonder how a government that claimed to value the lives of her people will openly toy with the idea of returning the palliatives, Ekiti APC members are to enjoy.
It is disappointing that Ekiti APC Grassroot members are being neglected by those they have worked for during the elections and are now being used to prove points in the same government they fought for.
This is another fact to buttress our observations of unnecessary politicking and the one man party system in Ekiti APC.
We advise the Fayemi led Excos to give relief materials to the vulnerable in the state Party, fumigate all public places and desist from “politicising” the welfarism of Ekiti State APC members.
