Governor Ayodele Fayose and the former Minister of Works, Dayo Adeyeye, yesterday traded words over the job placement initiated by the governor.

Adeyeye urged the people to be weary of the offer by the governor, less than three weeks to the election.

But Fayose accused Adeyeye of displaying favouritism by employing over 100 of his relations from Ise-Ekiti into the Ekiti State University (EKSU) when he was the Chairman of its Governing Council.


He said the ex-minister is likely to be deceived that other people’s children in the state do not need jobs.

Adeyeye, had in a statement by his Director of Media, Niyi Ojo, said the governor has been deceiving the people since 2002, claiming that his recent promise to create 2000 jobs for the youths was a scam to hurt the people.

He tasked Fayose to employ from the pool of 10, 000 youths, whom he deceived into obtaining forms at N1, 000, when he assumed office four years ago.

“It is obvious that he is only deceiving the people of the state.

It is unbecoming of a governor to deceive the youths of his state, who have supported him so much in the past,” he said.

But the governor, through his media aide, Lere oloayinka said: “For the umpteenth time, we wish to state that Adeyeye does not deserve the attention of sane minds.

“When you see a man whose total existence has been taken over by hatred and expression of same, it is better to allow him the freedom to advertise what controls his mind, so that he doesn’t run amok.

He urged him to go to the centres where thousands of applicants are obtaining the employment forms and express such views and be ready to face their reactions.
