Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state on Tuesday denied receiving N30 billion from the Federal Government after its inauguration.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr Yinka Oyebode, quoted Fayemi as saying that the people of the state should discountenance the rumour as it was fake and unfounded

“The fact remains that the new administration has not received any money from the Federal Government or any of its agencies since its inauguration a week ago.

“The attention of Ekiti State Government has been drawn to some malicious reports from some quarters that the new administration has received N30 billion from the federal government in the last one week

“We will have ignored this baseless rumour that is being circulated, especially in social media by some unscrupulous individuals, but for the sake of members of the public that could be misled in the process.

“As a responsible government that believes in accountability and transparency, this government will always provide correct information to the people on all its transactions and will not hide anything from the people.

“Members of the public are thereby assured of regular briefings on the state of finances and developments in the state
