The government of Ekiti State has rejected a claim that Governor Biodun Oyebanji’s ongoing working visit to the United States cost the state $500,000, Ekiti News reports.

In a statement on Sunday, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, the governor’s Special Adviser on  Media, said it was also false report that the governor was accompanied on the trip by 20 officials.

He said: “We urge well-meaning citizens of the state and Nigerians in general to disregard the dubious publication which is bereft of substance.

“As a responsible government, we also consider it appropriate to re-state here that Governor Oyebanji followed due protocols in embarking on the trip, which was well publicised.

“He has not exceeded the time allocated for the trip. He has not derailed from the purpose of the trip and he will be back in the country this week at the completion of the outlined tasks.

“It is important to place on record that Biodun Oyebanji remains focused on all-round development of Ekiti State through effective implementation of his six-pillar development agenda.”
