Ekiti Tribunal: Fayemi Closes Defence...Sitting Adjourned till January 9

Image
Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday closed his defence before the Ekiti State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, sitting at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Apo, Abuja.

This is even as the tribunal adjourned its sitting till January 9, 2019 for adoption of final written addresses of parties in the petition.

The People's Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the July 14 governorship election in contention, Professor Olusola Kolapo Olubunmi, filed the petition before the tribunal, challenging the declaration of Governor Fayemi as the winner.

The petitioners had alleged that victory of Governor Fayemi was as a result of vote buying, wide spread rigging, malpractices and that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials favoured the governor during the election.

They, therefore, prayed the tribunal to declare them as winners of the election on the ground that they scored majority of the lawful votes.

Fayemi and welfare of teachers in Ekiti By Segun Dipe

Image
When Governor John Kayode Fayemi was sworn in for a second term as the Executive Governor of Ekiti State recently, his avowed priority was the restoration of the state's core values of hardwork, honesty, and integrity.

Most importantly, the governor, not known for empty boasting, display of gangsterism or cheap populism, made it crystal clear that education was high on his priority list and he would give it the much desired premium.

No sooner had he mounted the saddle than the governor started walking his talk. Instantly, he removed the hostile policies imposed on education by his predecessor in office, revoked the education levies in primary and secondary schools and crowned it with the provision of N200 million to be accessed by the teachers as housing and car loans.

The loans, which are to be disbursed on a first come, first served basis, have placed the teachers in Ekiti State in the Number One position to receive such a largesse in this second coming of Governor Fayemi.
