Ekiti State governor Ayo Fayose has said that he will not run for public office again after the expiration of his tenure, TheCable reports.
He made the declaration in a meeting with civil servants in the state capital Ado on Tuesday.
“I don’t want to contest again, not even for senatorial race in 2019,” he said.
The governor added that he’ll be focusing on advocating for a better Nigeria. He decried the nonchalance of citizens of Ekiti state towards government policies that involves data collection
“One thing I have learnt was that, Ekiti people don’t normally participate in some government policies where data are collated. And it used to affect us in getting extra grants or favour from the Federal Government and international agencies.
The Federal Government is planning to renovate 1,000 health centres in Nigeria and Ekiti got only three. When I enquired, they said the data used to compile the figures didn’t favour Ekiti. If they are to register for polio vaccine, our people won’t make themselves available, because of nonchalant attitude,” he said.
