Luxury Lifestyle of Nigeria Politicians : Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose Accuses His Predecessor of Spending N100M On Bedroom
Last week Gov Ayo Fayose, was sworn in as new the elected governor of Ekiti State, but ever since appointed into government house, he did not let his predecessor Dr. Kayode Fayemi, to be in any good mood or even go away peacefully, as he keeps unleashing his squander mania attitude and corrupt practices of the former governor while in government.
Over the weekend the newly governor of the state, made it known to the general public that Fayemi left the state treasury empty on leaving office, Fayose has made more damning revelations, especially the ‘reckless’ spending of over N100m on the purchase of beds, mattresses and other furniture for the ex-governor and his wife’s bedroom in the newly built Ekiti State Government House.
Millions of Nigerians are living in abject poverty, while some cannot earn $1 per job, but our leaders and so-called politicians are living in luxury lifestyle rich people.
However in a statement made known to journalist in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, Fayose declared that Ex-Gov of the state Fayemi, spent N100m on the two bedrooms including their toilets and bathrooms.
The statement which was entitled ‘N3.3bn New Government House Is Fayemi’s Show of Wickedness To Ekiti People,’ was signed by his Special Assistant on Information and Social Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka.

Here is statement released out by Special Assistant on Information and Social Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka.
Between Fayemi and his wife, what was spent on their bedrooms, toilets and bathrooms will be in the region of N100m.
How can a responsible government use borrowed funds to provide this kind of luxury for the governor and his family alone in a state where a lot of people cannot afford to feed more than once in a day?
People should ask the former governor what was really wrong with the abandoned governor’s lodge used by his (Fayemi) predecessors?
Shouldn’t such funds expended on the hilltop edifice have been used to resuscitate the moribund textile factory in Ado-Ekiti that was turned to lock-up shops to provide employment for our teeming youths?
Also, was Fayemi living in that manner of opulence before he became governor? Was he sleeping on a body-massaging bed and bathing in an electric-controlled Jacuzzi?
Here is Fayemi, who could not pay workers salaries, owing them two-month salaries before he left. A Fayemi, who out of sheer wickedness, refused to pay pensioners N2.4bn pension and gratuities; N400m workers leave bonus, N700m subventions to parastatal and tertiary institutions and remit N2.4bn four months’ cooperative society’s deductions from workers salaries, preferring to use N3.3bn borrowed funds to provide luxury for himself, his wife and children alone.
This is wickedness!
