EKITI State governor, Biodun Oyebanji has appealed to the people of the state not to distinguish between his administration and that of the former governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi in terms of achievements.
The governor’s comments were coming against the backdrop of a wide range of commendations and ratings above his predecessor’s tenure by stakeholders especially social commentators in the first seven months of his administration.
Speaking on Friday at Ido-Ekiti, headquarters of Ido-Osi Local Government Area of the state during a special stakeholders’ engagement marking his first 200 days in office, Governor Oyebanji explained that his activities and actions in the last few months to the admiration of the people were part of the agenda of former Governor Fayemi for the state.
He said, “I want to appeal to our people not to make a distinction between Governor Fayemi’s administration and mine; we’re one and I said it again we’re one. My administration is an offshoot of Fayemi’s administration so there’s no distinction between what he has done and what I am doing.
“If Oga (Fayemi) were to be governor by now, most of these things I am doing is what he will be doing because these are something we’ve put down together in the development plan, which is guiding what I am doing.
“So I appeal to our people, particularly on social media. I don’t have control over what you say but I appeal to you to moderate your comments. Governor Fayemi is my leader. I will continue to respect him. He has done a lot for this state and still doing it and he needs your prayers for him to do more for us.”
