Massive Festive Celebration To Shut Down Ekiti State, As APC Chiefs Share Hundreds Of Millions Of Naira, Amaechi, El-Rufai, Contribute

Emerging report reaching Post-Nigeria, on Friday afternoon, indicates that there will be bumper Christmas and New Year celebrations for members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State, as a whopping sum of N350 million was said to have been allegedly given to the Minister for Steel and Minerals Resources Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to buy gifts and share in cash to members of the party, and some notable Traditional Rulers in the State.

The report further revealed that in preparing ground for Fayemi’s declaration to contest the 2018 Governorship election, the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, were said to have mobilized N350 million for him (Fayemi), to procure 10,000 bags of rice, 500 cows, 1,000 rams, among other gifts.

A close Aide of Fayemi was said to have boasted that: “By the time we bombard Ekiti with rice and cash gifts during the Christmas and New Year, the only name you will be hearing as the preferred APC candidate, will be Dr. John Kayode Fayemi.”

A source quoted the Aide as disclosing that rice was projected to be shared at 30 bags per Ward, in the 177 wards in the State, excluding those in Ado and Ikere Local Councils, earmarked for 50 bags per Ward.

Sources also disclosed that 20 bags were earmarked for the Excos of the party in each of the 16 Local Councils, while the State Excos will get 50 bags.

Elsewhere, N53.1 million was earmarked to be shared by each of the 177 Wards at N300,000 each; Local Government Excos at N200,000 each; while the State Excos were projected to get N5 million each.

To further assist Fayemi’s Guber ambition allegedly, N30 million from the N350 million provided for him, was earmarked for Traditional Rulers in the State, while all the paramount Kings will be given one cow each, and grade one to three Obas will get one ram each.

“If the projected distribution of these gift, including the cash is followed strictly, there is no how anyone will be able to match Fayemi in the contest for the APC Governorship ticket, because there is no Ward where 30 bags of rice and N300,000 will be shared, and they will not make up their minds to support Fayemi”, the source quoted a chieftain of the APC, who is supporting another Governorship aspirant to have lamented.
