In what may appear like a tit for tat, Ekiti State Governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, says it will be irresponsible on his part not to probe the administration of the outgoing governor of the state, Ayo Fayose.

Fayemi said this on Thursday when he fielded questions from State House correspondents after a closed-door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

It would be recalled that Fayose, on assumption of office probed Fayemi’s administration.

According to him, his administration will examine what transpired in the last four years in Ekiti state including the failure of the Fayose-led administration to pay workers’ salaries.

“Well, l think we need to remove this election from personalities.

“This was an election that we fought on issues and it will be irresponsible on my part to come here and say that we will not examine what transpired in the last four years in the manner of government.

“What was received in Ekiti State and the expenditures in that period? Why were we not able to pay salaries in the state?

“These issues should be examined in the interest of good governance; it is not about probing Fayose or probing Eleka or probing anybody.

“It is about not repeating the mistakes of the past and giving our people good governance and how to do so will also involve looking at what transpired in the last four years,’’ he said.

On the allegation of vote-buying during the last Saturday’s Ekiti governorship election, Fayemi said no evidence to justify such an allegation.

He said: “I haven’t any substantive evidence of allegations of vote-buying and intimidation.

“In the place where l voted, there was no vote-buying anywhere. As far as our party is concerned, we did not engage in that, it is not our style.

“We won the election fair and square and it was an election that we fought on issues and not on the basis of any vote-buying.

“So, whoever has any evidence of that should present it to an independently verifiable audience,’’ he said.

Fayemi, a former Minister of Mines and Steel Development and former governor of the state, was on Sunday declared winner of the election by Prof. Idowu Olayinka, the Chief Returning Officer for the poll.

Olayinka, who is the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, announced that Fayemi polled 197,459 votes to emerge, winner, to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, who scored 178,121 votes. (NAN)
