A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Dr. Adebayo Orire, has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to extend investigation into receipt and disbursement of ecological funds by the Ayo Fayose administration. Orire in a chat in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday said the State Government was not transparent in the spending of the N2billion ecological funds received from the Federal Government.
He contended that many communities in the state are afflicted with many ecological problems which the State Government has failed to tackle with the funds received from the Federal Government. The Publicity Secretary of Ekiti APC Elders’ Forum also urged the Anti-Graft Agency to probe the refund of N22billion spent on federal roads in the state by the immediate past administration.
Orire said Ekiti people desire to know how the ecological funds were spent as there are no projects on ground to show that the State Government received N2billion to tackle ecological problems in the state.
