2019: PDP can’t be credible alternative to APC – Fayemi

…Lists gains of Buhari’s govt.

From: WOLE BALOGUN, Ado Ekiti

A former Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi , has listed the gains of President Mohammadu Buhari’s administration in the past three years in the saddle.

He also said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could not be an alternative to the All Progressive Congress (APC) for Nigerians in 2019 presidential election.

Fayemi, who alleged that PDP’s plan to reclaim power in 2019 is a plot to continue to loot the country, urged Nigerians not to use the current fuel scarcity to rate President Buhari’s performances, saying: “What we are witnessing is just a normal curve in the life of any administration. We will get over it and move on, but largely President has not disappointed Nigerians.”

The Minister of Mines and Steel Development described the panel of enquiry inaugurated by Governor Ayodele Fayose to probe his administration as a kangaroo one,

revealing that it was an attempt to smear his reputation  and render him unpopular by the PDDP-led government.

“ They started with the probe of N852 million UBEC fund and when  they knew they could not go far, they started concocting lies and said I looted N17 billion.”

Addressing the pressmen in Isan Ekiti in Oye local government area of Ekiti State yesterday, Fayemi said Nigerians would ensure that PDP

didn’t return to power because of the high level of looting it perpetrated while in the saddle.

Fayemi, who didn’t say categorically whether he is still nursing governorship ambition,  said the APC is incurably committed to making

sure that Ekiti  rejoins the league of developing states by ensuring that  the party wins the 2018 governorship poll.

“What the PDP wanted to come back and do is stealing . The options for Nigerians in 2019 is to either return to the old age of

criminalization and brigandage by voting for the PDP, because nothing to convince Nigerians that they have changed with the shenanigans that characterised their national convention and poor performances by their

governors. There is nothing to suggest that PDP remains  a credible alternative to APC in 2019”, he


Fayemi denied the allegation by his critics that

he has not used his ministerial position for the benefit of the state, saying :”what I have done is measurable and clear . This government

has began the construction of a federal secretariat  and  housing estate in Ekiti  and the rail-line was extended to this state  in the

FG’s  proposal due to my intervention.

“4,000 Ekiti indigenes are benefitting from N-power and very soon it will go up to 12,000.

The proposal for kaolin exploration in Ekiti has

just been completed  that of  the bauxite will begin  soon.

“President Buhari’s government is planning to set up a cottage industry in Ekiti for the sake of the solid minerals exploration and I

have enlisted small scale  miners around Ijero Ekiti for them to be able to benefit from the N5b loan set up by the  Bank of Industry”, he
