Ekiti debt profile hits N120bn as Fayose exits

ADO-EKITI—THE debt profile of Ekiti State which was N117 billion at the beginning of the year has risen to N120 billion.

According to a document forwarded to the Debt Management Office, dmo, by the outgoing state government, the state incurred additional debt of N3 billion between March and June this year.


In September, Kayode Fayemi, governor-elect of Ekiti State, had raised an alarm over N99 billion debt incurred by the administration of Mr. Ayodele Fayose.

The DMO had said the debt profile of the state, going by available records then, had increased from N18 billion during Fayemi’s era to N117 billion, under Fayose’s watch.

But Fayose had denied the claim, saying the debt of Ekiti is pegged at N59.5 billion and that it was incurred by Fayemi’s government.
