Ekiti Assembly Ready To Investigate Fayose’s N10bn Supplementary Budget




The Ekiti state House of Assembly has set up a three-man  ad-hoc committee to investigate the N10 billion supplementary budget passed by some members of the House towards the end of the Fayose’s tenure.

Reports in the Punch suggests that the House had a plenary session on Tuesday, where an ad-hoc committee was set up to investigate the budget.

Chairman of the committee, Olusegun Adewumi who is the deputy speaker, also used the opportunity to commend the Fayemi-led administration for cancelling the education tax imposed on pupils by the past administration.

When asked about supplementary budget, Fayose said:“Fayemi signed his own on September 15, 2014, exactly a month to his leaving office, now I’m signing my own on September 14. They should keep quiet and stop crying wolf, I’m still the governor.

“This revised budget being signed today September 14, 2018, Fayemi did sign the same kind of budget on September 15, 2014, when he had less than a month to leave office. Maybe he has forgotten, but Ekiti people are not suffering from dementia and are students of history. “The Clerk of the House in 2014 when Fayemi signed his revised budget, Mr. Tola Esan, is still the clerk and he is here today. We are not robots and when there are things to attend to, we will still do that before we leave office.”
