The governor of Ekiti State, Biodun Oyebanji has urged indigenes to refrain from comparing his administration with that of his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
Governor Oyebanji characterized the comparison as inappropriate and entirely unfair, expressing discomfort with such evaluations.
All Nigeria Latest News reports that the governor addressed the issue in Ido-Ekiti in Ido/Osi Local Government Area of the state during a special stakeholders’ engagement held on Friday, marking his 200 days in office.
Governor Oyebanji was reacting to commendation of administration and condemnation for his predecessors, especially by social media commentators.
The governor, who was visibly angry, said comparing his administration with that of ex- Fayemi, who he described as his leader amounts to a waste of time.
Governor Oyebanji insisted that his government is an offshoot of the immediate past administration.
He said : “I want to appeal to people not to make a distinction from ex- governor Fayemi-led administration and mine. We are one and I said it again we’re one, my administration is an offshoot of Fayemi administration. So, there’s no distinction between what he has done and what am doing,
“If Oga were to be Governor by now most this am doing is what he will be doing because this is something we’ve put down together in the developing plan, which is guiding what i am doing.
” So I appeal to our people particularly on social media,I don’t have control on what you say but I appeal to you to moderate your comments. Governor Fayemi is my leader and i will continue to respect him. He’s has done a lot for this state and still doing it and he need your prayers for him to do more for us”, he said.
