Labour leaders chide EFCC for arresting Ekiti officials
Labour leaders in Ekiti State, yesterday, decried the arrest of the state’s Commissioner for Finance and the Accountant-General by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), even as they described the alleged misappropriation of the Bailout Fund given to the state last year as frivolous and unfounded.
Briefing newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, the Chairman, Trade Union Congress (TUC), Comrade Odunayo Adesoye, said the state government’s implementation and use of the fund were in line with the decisions taken by labour leaders and other stakeholders in the state.
Adesoye, who was flanked by labour leaders, also circulated a statement signed by labour leaders to condemn the EFCC’s action.
The statement was signed by him, the State Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Raymond Adesanmi, the NLC State Secretary, Comrade Patrick Olayemi and the TUC State Secretary, Comrade Adebisi Adebayo James.
