The APC scribe said that the occasional cases of abduction by bandits in Ekiti did not portray Gov. Fayemi’s administration as a failure or doing nothing to address the situation.

“The APC government in Ekiti is doing well to ensuring that Ekiti is safe and that was why the government joined the South West states to establish the “Amotekun” corps.

“In case the PDP is not aware, the recruitment into the South West Security Network, also known as “Amotekun” corps, is ongoing.

“Amotekun” will work in collaboration with the police by the time they will be deployed across the state to secure our people.

“Let me remind the PDP that apart from mis-governance of Ayo Fayose-led government, insecurity also chased away investors from Ekiti during the time, but this is not happening under Fayemi,” he said.
