The Chairman, Presidential Advisory Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has said the defeat of Governor Ayodele Fayose’s candidate, Kolapo Olusola-Eleka in the Ekiti Election has marked an end to his of stomach infrastructure.
In a statement during an interview with newsmen, the PACAC chairman said Fayose’s time as governor of the state was a disaster as he “didn’t pay salaries”.
According to him, the election was a way of voting Fayose out because he doubts “his deputy was the real candidate.”
He said, “I think Ekiti people have restored their sense of self-respect and dignity because to have elected a Fayose was a self-inflicted insult and he insulted them by saying he won election on the grounds of promising them stomach infrastructure.
“It was a very big insult because what he was saying is that the Ekiti people live solely for the sake of eating. That is why stomach infrastructure was a very big insult. And he insulted them for four years; he ran the state down.
“He didn’t pay salaries. Altogether, he was a disaster. So, this election was a way of voting Fayose out because I don’t think his deputy was the real candidate. In voting out Fayose, Ekiti people have restored their sense of self-respect and we will no longer call them stomach infrastructure state but as a serious people who look at their progress instead of food.”
Sagay advised Fayose and his team not to bother going to court but accept the result in the spirit of sportsmanship.
