Ekiti State PDP In Disarray*** Details Of How Fayose Cornered 1 Billion Electioneering Fund



‪There is fire on the mountain for Ekiti State’ Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s Governorship candidate, Ayodele Fayose.‬

‪Information pieced together by, has revealed that just days before the PDP grand rally planned to solicit support for Fayose, the state’ chapter of the party is in disarray.‬

‪A source in the camp of Fayose told us that the morale in the camp is so low and this has to do with their supposed number one man short changing them.‬

‪The source informed us that members of the party across the 177 wards are not happy with him because of a 1 billion naira electioneering fund Fayose got from Abuja and has turned to his personal money.‬

‪Their anger we heard was fuelled by their discovery that instead of him giving each ward the sum of 1 million naira, Fayose gave them a paltry 50, 000.00 naira. The party members are also miffed that immediately after the former Governor got the windfall, he went on spending spree, acquiring a posh property in Maitama area of Abuja, and another in Lagos.‬

‪ also heard that things went from bad to worse for Fayose when he asked each ward to contribute 1 million naira to his campaign purse. Fayose allegedly sent sms to the ward chairmen, instructing them to coordinate the fund raising.‬

‪The rude shock was so much for the wards chairmen that they cursed him for daring to insult them with such request.‬

‪This development, has seen Fayose’s ambitions nose diving seriously.‬

‪You may recall that last Wednesday the interim National Chairman of the party, Chief Bisi Akande, gave the incumbent Governor of Ekiti State, John Kayode Fayemi, the green card for a second term.‬

‪All efforts to get Fayose’s reaction on the allegation proved abortive as at press time.

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has described the death of the former lawmaker representing Lagos Central in the National Assembly, Sen. Munir Adekunle Muse, as “broken news” to the nation, saying the State woke up on Tuesday to an “awful reality” of the passing of the elder statesman.

The late Muse, who was a one time chairman of Apapa Local Government Area, passed on in the early hours of Tuesday. He was 81.

Sanwo-Olu, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, said the death of the elder statesman was a huge loss to Lagos for which the octogenarian, the Governor said, committed his time, resources and effort to build during his lifetime.

The Governor extolled the virtues of the late politician, whom he described as “a dedicated democrat with balanced progressive outlook”. Despite his withdrawal from active politics occasioned by his old age, Sanwo-Olu said the deceased was always in touch with leaders across the State to offer valuable contributions towards development.

The statement reads: “This morning, Lagos State woke up to the awful reality of the demise of a committed Lagosian, youth development enthusiast and elder statesman, Sen. Munir Adekunle Muse. For us, this is a broken news because the late former federal lawmaker passed away at a time his wealth of experience in corporate administration and political leadership was desired to guide our steps towards taking our dear State to another level of development.

“Having served in the Nigerian Port Authority (NPA) for more than 30 years, the late Sen. Muse retired to serve Lagos, first as community leader and council chairman in Apapa, then as a respected federal lawmaker. His sterling leadership quality earned him respect across the State and beyond. He was the stabilising factor behind the lasting peace enjoyed by members of the Lagos chapter of Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON).

“A devout Muslim and committed family man, Sen. Muse was gentle to a fault and not known to be cantankerous. Rather than engage in needless complaint, he believed in underground strategy to achieve results. His death is a huge loss to Lagos in particular, and the nation in general.”

“On behalf of my family and the good people of Lagos, I commiserate with the family of the late distinguished man, Senator Munir Muse.”

“I pray that the almighty Allah will admit the deceased into Aljana Firdaus and grant his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.” Sanwo-Olu said.
