A former governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has revealed how he was betrayed by many of those he appointed to serve the state after losing his re-election bid in 2014.
Fayemi said this on Sunday, adding that he had forgiven the ‘betrayers,’ and apologised to those he offended while in office.
Fayemi, a Federal Minister of Mine and Steal, spoke in Ode Ekiti, the headquarters of Gbonyin Local Government Area of the state on Sunday.
Fayemi, who had declared his intention to run in the governorship election in the state later this year, while addressing party members said, “after losing, many of them started spreading a rumour against me that I didn’t allow them to operate freely in my government.
“There was no one that held office in my government that I teleguided. I allowed them to be free and enjoy their positions contrary to what they said.
“I have forgiven those that betrayed me just like I apologise to whoever I must have offended as a governor, because I am a human being and I can’t claim to be infallible.”
