Stomach Infrastructure Is A Welfare Programme, Ayo Fayose Enlightens Nigerians...

Newly sworn-in Governor of Ekiti State who has been criticised for making provision for stomach infrastructure immediately he got into office has explained why he actually created an office for it.
Fayose while speaking at the PDP national secretariat yesterday, when he accompanied President Goodluck Jonathan to pick his presidential forms said, even Britain does it. His words;
If you look at Britain, as rich and as comfortable as they are, in the entire time, they find their way to address the issue of the poor and less privileged masses in their country by what they call social security. Food is a social security, you can’t be talking to a hungry man, he would be distracted by any means. Secondly, when we say stomach infrastructure, it is a welfare programme, a programme that would keep the heart of a man stable.”
