Jan 2nd, 2015 – APC Demotes Ekiti People To Beggars Over Fayose’s Stomach Infrastructure Scheme
The stomachs of Ekiti people are all filled courtesy of the ministry of stomach infrastructure as created by the governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose.
The people of Ekiti who thronged in their thousands to designated sharing points between the 22nd and 24th of December 2014 across the different collection points at all the local governments of the state showed so much delight at the initiative of the governor.
Materials given included bags of rice, hen and cash gifts. This welfare scheme which had being considered by members of the opposition as demoting Ekiti people to beggar status is now increasingly popular with the masses who see the governor as a man who understands the people.
It could be recalled that at the first coming of the governor in 2001-2003, Ayo Fayose had started the distribution of free water through tanks, kerosene and had offered medical and financial aid to Ekiti people. This stomach infrastructure is just the part two.
Other state governors are thinking of replicating the policy.
