The PDP had lambasted Fayemi’s administration over insecurity in the state, saying that people are no longer safe in the state under the present administration of the APC.
Noting that insecurity is a national malaise and not peculiar to the state alone, APC urged residents to go about their normal activities without any fear of threat to their lives or property.
“It is like comparing Satan with Jesus, when the situation under which PDP governed this state is compared to the present situation under the APC government.
“There are several unresolved daylight assassinations and clear cases of robberies which happened during the immediate past government and are yet to be resolved till date due to the personalities involved.
“Residents of the state should ignore the statement. Ekiti is more secured under Fayemi unlike when Fayose and PDP were in the saddle. There was a lot of state-sponsored assassinations then.
“None investigated, none solved. Insecurity is a national malaise and the establishment of the Ekiti branch of the Amotekun security outfit which is highly equipped and motivated by the state government is a pointer to the seriousness of the administration to safe guard lives and properties in the state.
“The opposition is so idle and mischievous, so much that members are daily deserting the party and defecting to our party daily and in drove, while they are too neck-deep in matters that do not concern them. The umbrella is torn and their party is going to perpetual extinction.
“The APC is confident that security agents in the state are capable of dealing with any unfortunate incident, and they have already swung into action in the case of the Oil magnate who was kidnapped on Monday and very soon, they shall bring succor to the family of the victim, just like they did during the Yuletide period when a travelling businessman was rescued by the Amotekun outfit in cooperation with other security outfits in the state.
“There have been so many success stories that can be attributed to the Dr Fayemi Government since its inception about two years ago, but these have been ignored by the opposition.
“They are those referred to by one of America’s former Vice President, Spino Agnew as the “nattering nabobs of negativism. They would always prefer to serve in hell, rather than be partners in heaven”.
KanyiDaily recalls that Fayose had urged Fayemi to stop complaining unnecessary, reminding him that he was voted to do what he couldn’t.

Boosting banditry business, Katsina Govt appoints Welfare Committee for families of attack Some state governments in the northwest seem to be rolling out policies that would rather boost banditry and contain the menace in the north. The Katsina State Government appeared to be taking to this when the government inaugurated an Executive Council Committee to take care of the welfare of orphans and widows whose parents or husbands had been killed by bandits in the 11 most affected local government areas. While the action may not be totally wrong, governments in the northwest should be seen to be taking more effective actions to combat the rage of bandits in the zone. The Deputy Governor of Katsina State, Alhaji Mannir Yakubu, who is chairman of the committee, had disclosed the appointment of the welfare intervention committee by the governor of the state, Aminu Masari. The deputy governor had emphasized that the start executive council had at its 6th regular meeting pointed out with concern the effects of the bandits violence on the socio-economic well-being of the affected communities, particularly, orphans and widows. The deputy governor said the council, therefore, constituted the committee under his chairmanship to advise the government on how to improve the lives of those affected. Other terms of reference of the committee, according to the deputy governor, include identifying orphans and widows in the affected local government areas and suggesting the kind of assistance to be provided to the victims by the government. Others include determining the source of financing for the project and co-opting any other individuals that may assist in the conduct of the committee’s assignment. The composition of the committee includes the Commissioners of Budget and Planning, Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Special Duties and Women Affairs. Other members are the Special Advisers on Community Development, Higher Education, Economic Empowerment and Social Intervention, as well as that of Political Matters, among others.
