If the news that Governor Kayode Fayemi intends to create 18 new local government areas out of the existing 16 and also embark on a recruitment exercise just four months before handover is anything to go by, it is, to say the least, belated. You cannot deceive the people all of the time! Why create financial burden for the new government? He ought to have done that months before if he had good intentions. The two steps would at best, be an exercise in futility. Rather than do such things, he should busy himself with the handover plans, complete ongoing projects, and if any and mop up. He should leave the rest to his “brother”, the incoming governor since governance is a continuum. The actions are Fayemi’s Greek gifts for the people of Ekiti State and booby traps for Ayo Fayose. Is his concession of defeat not a facade after all? Fayemi should hand over honourably and not cause unnecessary trouble for the incoming government.
