Fayemi said Fayose’s proposed Stomach Infrastructure is a scheme to loot the state’s wealth
Hear what Fayemi said in an interview yesterday:
“What they mean by stomach infrastructure abhors me and many people know that I am not going to partake in it. I am not going to go out on the streets and start distributing N200 to the people because I want people to hail me.
“I don’t come from that school of politics because it does not add value to my people; it diminishes their self-esteem, it diminishes their sense of self-worth, it really denigrates what politics ought to be about, even as despicable as it has become in our clime.
“I don’t subscribe to that. It is very easy for me, out of the N3bn average income that accrues to the state, to go out there, distribute N500,000 among street urchins and then everybody says, ‘what a good governor.’ But when someone throws N500, 000 to you and pockets N2bn of state funds and put it in a private account, is that what really people want?”
Now this is getting interesting, the drama in Ekiti is just about to start.
