Group Slams Fayose for blaming Fayemi over Kaduna teachers’ ordeal

SHARE

The JKF Movement, a pro-Kayode Fayemi pressure group in Ekiti State, has challenged Governor Ayo Fayose to prove his allegation that the Minister of Solid Minerals is behind the threat to sack Kaduna State teachers over their alleged inability to pass a competency test.
Fayose had last week, through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, alleged that Fayemi advised El-Rufai to conduct competency test for the teachers in Kaduna State and use the result to weed out the teachers that failed the test.
But the JKF Movement’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kunle Omotayo, berated Fayose for his “trademark irresponsibility in deliberately spinning lies to malign an innocent man.”
Describing Fayose as a “master of mischief and shameless liar, who has debased the exalted position of governor and taken governance to the dogs,” the group said it was regrettable that the Ekiti governor was an “irritant inflicted on Ekiti people to shame the time-honoured integrity and honesty that Ekiti people are renowned for.”
He faulted Fayose’s allegation of complicity against Fayemi in El-Rufai’s face-off with the teachers, explaining that the minister had more than enough in his hands in the mineral and steel sectors of the economy than dabbling in matters outside his official brief at a different level of government outside his immediate constituency.
Also describing Fayose and his media aide, Olayinka, as “a perfect match in integrity deficiency,” Omotayo listed instances of the Ekiti governor’s “reckless and wicked lies” that had portrayed him as lacking integrity as a leader.
He said, “Fayose lied for a long time on Ecological Fund he collected but denied collecting before he finally owned up when the opposition was about to approach the Ecological Fund Office in Abuja to seek clarification and also lied about Ekiti debt figures for a long time before the Debt Management Office gave out the actual figures to keep his mouth shut.
“He lied on the bailout, Paris Refund, Budget Support Facility, actual wage of N1.9 billion, but which he falsely put at N2.8 billion, and claimed credit for projects he didn’t spend one kobo of government’s money on, which include Adunni Olayinka Women Centre, Ikere road dualisation and Bank/Awedele road and street-light projects, which were financed by banks and other corporate organisations.”
He added, “Turning himself to a nuisance, Fayose kept lying about President Muhammadu Buhari’s health and threatening to show the President in 11 photographs on life-support machine. For Lere Olayinka, he shares integrity problem with his boss as can be explained in several criminal libels he is facing in courts over deliberate falsehoods to paint his victims black.
“Lere lied against the Chief Judge, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, that the CJ collected N200 million from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to manipulate Fayose’s perjury case, while he also lied that Fayemi embezzled SUBEB’s N852 million.”
Omotayo also explained that Fayemi, who implemented pro-workers schemes when he was governor, could not have become an interloper in another state.
He explained, “How can Fayemi, who gave four cars out as gifts to best teachers in primary and secondary schools during his four years in office and sent more than 10 senior civil servants on various in-service training programmes at the Royal Institute of Public Administration in the United Kingdom, be portrayed as enemy of teachers?
“It is also on record that Ekiti teachers had the best of times when Fayemi was governor. They got three pay rise and also additional benefits, including 20 per cent rural teachers allowance and 20 per cent core subjects allowance and we wonder how such a pro-teachers’ leader can suddenly turn the enemy of teachers.”
