The list announcing the appointment of 209 Chairmen and 1,258 members for Federal Government agencies has caused a major division among members of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State.
It was gathered that members of the party were divided over the “over concentration” of the appointments on the Kayode Fayemi-led caucus of APC in the state.
Some members of the party alleged that Fayemi doctored the list to favour his loyalists in the state.
They alleged that in the board appointments released by the Presidency on Friday, none
of the loyalists of Special Adviser to the Senator Ojudu was among the 24 people appointed in Ekiti State.
Out of the 24 people appointed in Ekiti, they claimed that 18 were from the camp Fayemi, while the camp of the APC Deputy National Chairman (South), Chief Segun Oni and the entire decampees from the PDP got four. The remaining two went to former Governor Niyi Adebayo and Hon Opeyemi Bamidele.
Out of the 18 slots gotten by Fayemi’s camp, they alleged that Fayemi’s elder sister, Mrs Monisola Oloro got one, while Dr (Mrs) Eniola Ajayi, who is already in Hungary as ambassador was appointed too.
One of the party chieftain, Dare Oguntuase, described the list of people from Ekiti State that were appointed into federal as “The Ekiti list of shame.”
Oguntuase, who is one of the Social Media aides of Senator Ojudu said, “The list earlier compiled and worked upon by a Committee of zonalVice Chairmen of the party in which Chief Pius Akinyelure represented the South West, was doctored by the Minister for Steel and Minerals Resources Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
He said prominent people such as Alhaji Gani Owolabi, Chief Mrs Okusanya , Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, Prof. Oluwasanmi, Mrs Bunmi Dipo Salami, Princess Omotunde Adelabu, My Omotunde Fajuyi, Dr Orire , Hon Karunwi ,Chief Jide Awe, Chief Taiwo Olatunbosun, Chief Muyiwa Olumilua and many others were on the list.
Oguntuase went further to state that “it was when a Committee of Governors and Ministers were asked to vet the list that Fayemi went behind and doctored the list to include his senior sister, Mrs Oloro, his domestic assistance, Mr Kunle Dada, his friend Ade Eniola Ajayi, who has already been made an Ambassador and many others.”
Checks by our correspondent showed that Oloro is the elder sister to Fayemi and Ajayi had been appointed as an Ambassador.
