Non-payment of salaries a sin — Ex-deputy Gov
• CSO To Deploy 541 Observers For Ekiti Guber Election
Former Deputy Governor and former Group Managing Director, Wema Bank, Mr. Adebisi Omoyeni, yesterday, described non-payment of salaries as a sin against humanity.
Omoyeni, the candidate of People Alliance for National Development and Liberty Party (PANDEL), said there could be no excuse for owing workers up to eight months.
Omoyeni, once a deputy to Governor Ayodele Fayose, recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to pursue his governorship ambition.
He criticised the Fayose-led administration for owing salaries.
“A government that met two months salary arrears and increased it to eight months is a total failure,” he said.
He promised to create at least 10,000 high-paying jobs in four years through agriculture and agro-allied jobs.
Meanwhile, Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth & Advancement, (YIAGA), has said it would deploy 541 election observers for the governorship election in Ekiti State.
The body will also have 24 long-term observers, 25 stationary observers and one-collation observers in each local government council.
YIAGA stated this in Ado-Ekiti, at a media roundtable tagged: ‘Watching the Vote’.
