Don’t be deceived by Fayose’s antics, APC tells workers
ADO-EKITI – THE All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has warned workers in the state not to be deceived by Governor Ayodele Fayose’s antics, saying his frequent radio and television live broadcasts to paint gloomy financial position of the state is devised to deceive and deny workers of their entitlements.
APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, in a statement said the advice became imperative in the face of mindless rhetoric being deployed by the governor to deceive workers over the over-bloated debt figures as alibi for the government’s handicaps in meeting its salary obligation to workers.
Noting that hundreds of Ekiti workers had been sacked and bond debts payment suspended for six months while several promotions were reversed, he said money saved from the losses to workers and cancellation of empowerment schemes should have been enough to pay workers entitlements, particularly as federal allocations were regular while there were no new capital projects being executed by the governor.
Stating that the governor should stop reeling out his abracadabra debt and payment figures to the more intelligent Ekiti workers, Olatubosun said the governor’s antecedents had given him away as he tried to hoodwink the innocent workers.
“It is good that Ekiti people know the kind of governor they have. In one breath, he said he spends N1.4b to pay salary monthly. The next minute, he said it is N1.6b in the same broadcast, which gave him away, as usual, as a man playing games with the lives of Ekiti people. All these mathematical gymnastics are callous demonstration of breach of faith in government and the governed relations,
“What is the governor doing with full monthly federal allocation to the state when the bond debt repayment has been suspended for six months? 300 members of Traffic Management Agency have been sent packing. 800 members of Volunteer Peace Corps have been relieved of their jobs” he said.
