The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has defended his performance in office, saying he made life better for the people of the state.
The ex-governor said he could not indulge in the distribution of rice and money to woo voters, an act which is now commonly referred to as “stomach infrastructure.” He described the act as an insult to the people and a mockery of governance.
Fayemi spoke during a programme on Channels Television titled, “Politics Today”.
He said during his tenure, teachers in the state became the highest paid in the country, adding that he ensured that civil servants’ salaries were increased thrice during his administration.
He, therefore, wondered why the new Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and his supporters had been criticising him.
