The Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Rev. Christopher Tayo Omotunde, has described the tenure of former Governor Ayo Fayose as “four wasted years”.
Omotunde regretted that rather than move forward, Ekiti retrogressed under the former governor.
The cleric said the state urgently needs repairs, resuscitation and rejuvenation to put it back on the right track.
“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had a golden chance to make a difference in the lives of Ekiti residents but abused the opportunity to the extent that the people became slaves under them.”

The cleric warned the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) administration to learn from the mistakes of the immediate past government and never disappoint the masses looking up to it for good governance and redemption.
Omotunde spoke yesterday at a thanksgiving service in honour of Deputy Governor Bisi Egbeyemi at the Cathedral Church of Emmanuel, Okesa, Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
The bishop said Fayose’s unrelenting criticisms and opposition to President Muhammadu Buhari denied Ekiti many benefits while other PDP governors attracted projects to their states and got financial support from the Federal Government because of their good relationship with the President.
