Adebayo, Fayose, Fayemi failed to implement Ekiti blueprints – Afe Babalola

The Chancellor and founder of the Afe Babalola University, Aare Afe Babalola SAN, has criticised previous governors of Ekiti State for allegedly abandoning the vision and blueprint laid down by the founding fathers of the state.

Babalola who commended Governor Biodun Oyebanji, for his strides noted that the vision behind the creation of Ekiti was to make it the best state in Nigeria.

Babalola, made the remarks yesterday at the commissioning of ABUAD Multi-System Hospital, Annex Odo-Ado, at Igirigiri road in Ado Ekiti.

He said, “It pains me that you didn’t become governor of Ekiti much earlier than now. We know what we did to bring Ekiti State into existence. Our vision was for Ekiti to be the best state in Nigeria, that will be setting the pace as my university is setting the pace now.

“Unfortunately those who became governor before you didn’t have the love of Ekiti. Go and tell them that I said so. That is why we are facing so much hardship in the state. When I was a local government councilor in the sixties, I didn’t receive a salary.

“That was when there was development in Ekiti Local Government. We thought that those who are coming to govern Ekiti will follow our footstep and our blueprints but they refuse to follow it. However, this governor is doing a yeoman’s job.”
