Fayose Reports President Buhari To South West Governors

Ekiti state Governor Ayodele Fayose on Monday reported President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government to south-west governors for what he called the paltry sums allocated to Ekiti and other south-western states in the 2017 N7trillion budget.

The governor said his brother governors in the region to look beyond party politics and ask questions as to the beneficiaries, repayment and what the south west stand to gain from the $1billion Euro bond the federal government is planning to obtain.

Fayose who made the remarks at the opening of quarterly meeting of the south west governor's economic meeting in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, lamented that the only capital project allocated to Ekiti State in the current budget is the 45 kilometre Akure – Ado Ekiti road to which N250 million was earmarked.

“What can N250 million do on Akure – Ado road that is begging for reconstruction? There is even no guarantee that the N250 million budgetary provision will be made available at the end of the day. I am sure this is applicable to other states too compared to other zones,” he queried.

Governors at the meeting were Mr. Akinwumi Ambode, Lagos; Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Osun; Senator Isiaka Ajumobi, Oyo; Dr. Olusegun Mimiko, Ondo while the Ogun state governor was represented by the Deputy Governor Yetunde Onanuga
