As the July 14, 2018 governorship election in Ekiti State draws near,
the Ekiti Democratic Coalition (EDC) has alleged that former Minister
of State of State for Works and Peoples Democratic Party governorship
aspirant, Prince Dayo Adeyeye has sealed a N100 million deal with
Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
EDC, which made this allegation in a release issued on Wednesday and
signed by its Convener, Comrade Ogunlola Olatunde, said N100 million
was for Adeyeye’s Radio Station, Voice FM to be used solely to attack
the person of the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose and launder
Fayemi’s image, especially in respect of his bad image with teachers
in the State.
The coalition said the N50 million, which was 50 per cent of the N100
million deal agreed by Adeyeye and Fayemi, was paid into his (Adeyeye)
account at Diamond Bank, Abuja last week Wednesday.
The group lamented that Adeyeye only used his position as minister to
amass wealth for himself, building a multi-million mansion in Abuja
within nine months as minister and a radio station, which is his
personal investment in Ado Ekiti.
EDC counseled Adeyeye to look back and take stock of the benefits he
derived from being a minister under PDP government from where he made
the millions with which he established the radio station and search
It said Adeyeye could not have set up a radio station if he was not
made a minister by the PDP government of Dr Goodluck Jonathan and that
apart from the radio station, which is his personal investment, he
should tell Ekiti people what benefit was derived by the State during
his nine months as minister.
It said it was worrisome that Prince Adeyeye is acting more like
someone who is more interested in PDP losing the July 14 governorship
election than picking the party ticket.
The EDC alleged that it was the N100 million deal sealed with Fayemi
that has made the Voice FM radio station to devoted its operations
into attacking Governor Fayose and his government on one hand and
supporting Fayemi and the All Progressives Congress on the other.
