Press statement from Ekiti state…
The Ekiti Justice Group (EJG) has condemned the alleged diversion of N57.34m drugs meant for Ekiti State to the campaign of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd) by the wife of former governor of the State, Mrs Bisi Fayemi.
The group, in a release issued in Ado Ekiti on Monday, and signed by its Secretary, Comrade Ebenezer Olaleye, urged the State government to investigate the allegation.
A text message by EKITI-UK had alleged that Fayemi’s wife donated drugs worth N57.34m to Buhari’s campaign. It was alleged that the drugs sourced from a European Donor Agency last year August for Ekiti Free Health Mission arrived first week of January.
The drugs were said to be part of the N135m drugs Buhari’s wife, Hajiya Aishatu Buhari donated to the Internally Displaced Persons camps in Adamawa State last week Wednesday.
EJG said it was miffed that Fayemi and his wife were yet to learn there lessons after they were roundly rejected by Ekiti people.
It added; “that was the way Fayemi’s wife built a N500m Centre for Gender and Social Policy Studies for the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife and donated two brand new buses to the Elizade University, Ilaramokin.
“She also donated 600 books from her library to the university while Ekiti State University was begging for attention.
“Her husband donated N1.5bn to Buhari’s campaign and she has donated drugs meant for Ekiti people to Adamawa State.
“We wonder why Fayemi and his wife hate Ekiti and its people this much.”
