The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of planning to hijack the federal government’s N-Power scheme.
APC in a statement by its publicity secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, on Monday 19, December warned Governor Fayose against misinforming the beneficiaries of the federal government’s N-Power scheme in the state, The Eagle online reports.
Mr. Olatunbosun alleged that Governor Fayose recently assembled hundreds of Ekiti state youths enlisted by the federal government to benefit from its employment scheme at the government house under the impression that the scheme was owned by the state.
The party said Fayose even went as far as making promises of stipends and other conveniences, including churning out details of what they should do and what they should not do in his attempt to hijack the project to his advantage.
The party said it was fraudulent for Fayose who spent nights and days criticising all development programmes initiated by President Buhari to turn around and attempt hijacking the N-Power programme he does not wish well to his advantage.
The party said “It is amusing that a governor who believes that he is in government for self-enrichment and who has never hidden his anti-people conducts by refusing to encourage job-creation schemes and always wishing Buhari’s administration bad luck in its welfare programmes could suddenly attempt to hijack N-Power to his advantage”.
APC said Governor Fayose had a record of initiating anti-people policies since assumption of office which has seen about 1,464 youths jobless in just one and half years of his tenure.
