Ekiti state governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi may have incured the wrath of his towns men following the total darkness, that has for sometime now, become a permanent feature of the town.
ThePageNews gathered that Isan Ekiti, the home town of the Governor who also double as the Chairman of Nigerian Governors Forum, has since been in perpetual darkness, due to the faulty transformer that serves the entire town,even as the governor’s kinsmen are said to have unsuccessfully lobbied him to use his office to intervene in the power outage issue.
The power issue , a source offered, is the height of the governor’s alleged apathy towards developmental issues in the town.
According to a source, the governor has not visited the town more than twice since he assumed office and this has been alluded to his failure to fulfil most of his electioneering promises to the town and the people.
While efforts to speak with the Onisan of Isan over these issues, proved abortive, a palace source however hinted that the governor is not showing any sign of readiness to impact the town beyond the provision of the College of Agriculture and Technology that he facilitated to the town upon assumption of office for a second term which will end in about 24 months.
In fact, the establishment of the college of Agriculture has also earned condemnation for the governor accused of abolishing three institution of learning planted by his predecessors, on the basis that the state can not finance them, only to plant a new one in his home town.
This development has earned him strong condemantion from his kingsmen and non- native members of in the state.
As gathered by TPN, his kingsmen are not happy that the school is the major physical thing the governor has been able to attract to the town among many things he was alleged to have promised them while campaigning . Some did not see the school as of any importance aside turning out graduates who will end up unemployed.
In fact, it was gathered also that the school project has not been getting major attention until about a fortnight ago when about 300m was alleged to have been released for the building of lecture rooms.
TPN gathered that on assumption of office, Governor Fayemi said the state could not afford to fund three tertiary institutions existing in the state,hence the abolition of the University of Science and Technology, established by the then Governor Segun Oni in his Ifaki home town and the University of Education, in Ikere Ekiti also established by Segun Oni as well as the abolition of the International college established and tastefully furnished by former governor, Ayo Fayose, only to plant a new institution in his home town.
