Stop Deceiving Youths On N-Power Scheme, APC Warns Fayose


The All Progressives Congress, APC in Ekiti State has warned Governor Ayodele Fayose against misinforming the beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s N-Power Scheme in the state, cautioning that it is too late to employ deceit to secure undeserved support of the people.
Hundreds of Ekiti State youths were recently enlisted by the Federal Government to benefit from its employment scheme targeted at removing unemployed graduates from the job market.
Fayose allegedly took ownership of the scheme by assembling the youth in the Government House, making promises of stipends and other conveniences, including churning out details of what they should do and what they should not do, and thus allegedly creating an impression that he had better primary assignments for the youth different from as stipulated in the N-Power protocol as envisaged by the Federal Government.
In a statement in Ado-Ekiti, Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, scoffed at the governor, accusing him of fraud in his attempt to hijack the Federal Government’s project to his advantage.
He accused Fayose of double standard, noting that while the governor spent days and nights criticising all development programmes initiated by President Muhammadu Buhari,” he is fraudulently hijacking the N-Power programme he does not wish well to his advantage”.
He said:”It is amusing that a governor who believes that he is in government for self-enrichment and who has never hidden his anti-people conducts by refusing to encourage job-creation schemes and always wishing Buhari’s administration bad luck in its welfare programmes could suddenly attempt to hijack N-Power to his advantage.
“Warning the governor against issuing out misleading directives to the youth, including misinforming the public on the N-Power scheme, Olatunbosun urged the youth to await orders from the Federal Government on their primary assignments, saying that details of their job schedules and benefit packages would soon be made public by the N-Power management team.
He added that the Federal Government will soon announce the second phase of the programme, promising that hundreds of Ekiti youths will also benefit from the life-lifting scheme.
