Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has demolished the Ekiti State Governor’s Lodge in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The 2000sqm building is located on T.Y Danjuma Street, Asokoro.
The befitting edifice hitherto sitting on this expansive was built less than seven years ago.
It is not clear why Governor Fayemi demolished the building , thereby necessitating enquiry into whether or not the land has been sold.
Work has already started on a new structure to be erected on the expansive land. A 15ft bunker like foundation is being presently dug by construction workers working day and night.
Many citizens of the state have begun to question the rationale for demolishing the building as the edifice was in such a good state to continue to serve as Ekiti State Governor’s Lodge.
They argued that even if the old building was dilapidated, the government could renovate it and use the remaining money to tackle hunger and poverty back home, as well as the infrastructure deficit in the state.
Attempts to get the governor’s side of the story proved abortive as some of Fayemi’s aides failed to pick their calls or respond to text messages on the matter.
