Special Assistant to the Ekiti State governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka has carpeted the senator representing Ekiti Central, Babafemi Ojudu, describing him as a negative influence on the state.
Olayinka said; “even though I respect Senator Ojudu because of his age, truth must be told, he was responsible for the political instability in the state, which resulted to the state having 10
governors in 16 years and Ekiti people will not let him (Ojudu) have his way this time around.”
While referring to the governor’s aide as a liar, Ojudu had said in a newspaper interview that; “the boy is just a compulsive liar,” going further to say that; “since Fayose came to power, no court has sat in Ekiti State. There is no legislature, no judiciary, nothing. What we have in Ekiti is a maximum ruler who does not fancy the rule of law.”
Reacting, Olayinka described as wicked the claim by the senator that no court has sat in Ekiti since Fayose assumed office, saying; “If Ojudu thinks that the way he used falsehood, propaganda and fake security men to remove Governor Fayose in 2006, he can do same in 2015, he is making a mistake.”
The governor’s aide said; “it is on record that Ojudu wagged war against Otunba Niyi Adebayo, using his Tempo and the News Magazine. He did the same against Governor Fayose during his first tenure, using
PM News, despite being among those who urged Engr Segun Oni to contest the governorship and that he played prominent roles in the formation Oni’s campaign organisation, the Ekiti Development Agenda (EDA), Ojudu still wagged war against Oni.
“The only Governor he (Ojudu) did not fight openly was Dr Kayode Fayemi and it was because of his position as a member of the APC and a senator. Even at that, Ojudu clandestinely wagged war against Fayemi, causing division in the APC with his Action Group caucus.
“The reality is that Ojudu will wage war against anybody just to achieve his personal ambition and this he did immediately Fayemi left government. Ojudu started destroying Fayemi to the extent that he
allegedly took a recording of what Fayemi allegedly said against Senator Bola Tinubu, and it was on that note that he (Fayemi) almost lost his relationship with Tinubu.
“Leaders of the APC can come to Ekiti to find out why Ojudu is the most hated politician in the state today. When the vice president-elect, Prof Yemi Osinbajo came to Ekiti to campaign, Ojudu was not allowed to speak. He was openly booed by members and supporters of the APC. Was Governor Fayose responsible for that as well?”
