Ekiti state overnorship aspirant on the platform of All Progressives Congress (APC) and former minister of solid minerals development, on Monday, july 9, gave free fuel to commercial motorcycle riders in Ado-Ekiti. The governorship aspirant reportedly provided the free fuel at Mobil petrol station along Ikere Road in Ajilosun with the riders forming long queues to benefit from the gesture.
Vanguard reports that the riders got five litres of fuel each and Fayemi urged them to give free rides to commuters. He urged the riders to ignore allegation from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that he would ban commercial motorcycle operations if he wins the July 14th election. He promised them that instead of ban he would give the operators more incentives including soft loans, equipment and provide good roads to aid their operation.
