Members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly have denied the allegation by Senator Babafemi Ojudu, a former lawmaker who served Ekiti Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly, that some members of the House have been feeding him with documents and information about the wrongdoings of Ekiti State Governor Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
Lately, there has been controversies between Senator Ojudu and Governor Kayode Fayemi, leading to media attacks and war of words.
The Assembly members in a Statement signed by it’s Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs Hon. Yemisi Ayokunle claimed that there’s no member of the House that has any relationship with the Ex-Senator.
The Statement reads: “The attention of the Honourable Members of Ekiti State House of Assembly has been drawn to a statement made by former Senator Babafemi Ojudu on a programme of New Cruse F.M 92.7, Ikere Ekiti on June 27, 2020. The former Senator claimed that some unnamed members of Ekiti State House of Assembly are sending to him, ‘documents of wrongdoings’ by the Ekiti State government under Governor John Kayode Fayemi.”
“Ordinarily, we would not have dignified the erstwhile Senator with a response, but because of the evil machinations of human minds and the possibility of some gullible minds believing his lies, he should not be allowed to go away with his blue murder and barefaced lies.”
“There’s no doubt, this is a red herring from a persona that has been variously described as ‘anger and conspiracy’ in motion; whose trademark is blackmail and unquenchable knack and ability to trade anything for pecuniary benefits.”
According to Ayokunle, “members of the House are people of integrity and set of focused representatives of their people, who cannot be swayed by a character like Ojudu who prefers to rule in hell than serve in paradise.”
“We give the Senator a blank cheque to come out with his facts and the personalities involved in his concoction and tissue of lies.”
“The 6th Assembly is too focused in making laws for the good of our people. We are doing this in active collaboration with the other arms of government especially the Executive arm. The Five Pillars Agenda of the government of Dr. Kayode Fayemi is too sacred that we cannot be distracted by a incurable cynic like Senator Ojudu.”
“We’re indeed glad that all the efforts of good governance have been made possible by the enabling laws emanating from the House. They are yielding positive results, despite the general dwindling financial resources. Everybody can see these, except the ostrich among us, like the Senator.”
“The roads infrastructure are there for everyone to see: Oye-Otun; Aramoko- Erijiyan; New Ado- Iyin Road; Airport project; Agbado-Omuo; Ilupeju-Igbemo etc. Only in the week the contract for the dualisation of Ado-Akure road, influenced by the Governor was awarded by the Federal Executive Council.”
“We therefore advise Senator Ojudu to look elsewhere for his co-travellers in his trademark game of divide and rule. Everyone is too aware of his character to take him serious. We can only wish him goodluck on his road to Golgotha, which is already signed, sealed and delivered.”
