Stomach Infrastructure, An Insult To Ekiti People – Fayemi Says

The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has defended his performance in office, saying he made life better for Ekiti people.

The ex-governor said he couldn’t indulge in the distribution of rice and money to woo voters, an act which is now referred to as “stomach infrastructure”. He also describe the act as an insult to Ekiti people and a mockery of governance.

Fayemi spoke during a programme on Channel TV, “Politics Today” on Monday, where he said during his tenure, teachers in Ekiti State became the highest paid in the country, adding that he ensured that civil servants’ salaries were increased thrice during his tenure.

He therefore, wondered why the Present Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and his supporters had been criticising him.

He said, “What they mean by stomach infrastructure abhors me and many people know that I am not going to partake in it. I am not going to go out on the streets and start distributing N200 to the people because I want people to hail me.

“I don’t come from that school of politics because it does not add value to my people; it diminishes their self-esteem, it diminishes their sense of self-worth, it really denigrates what politics ought to be about, even as despicable as it has become in our clime.

“I don’t subscribe to that. It is very easy for me, out of the N3bn average income that accrues to the state, to go out there, distribute N500,000 among street urchins and then everybody says, ‘what a good governor.’ But when someone throws N500, 000 to you and pockets N2bn of state funds and put it in a private account, is that what really people want?”
