Ekiti APC accuses Gov Fayose of deceiving workers to enrich himself

Governor Ayodele Fayose
The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of deceiving Nigerians, especially workers in the state, to corruptly enrich himself.

The party said the governor’s attempt to demonise fellow governors contemplating pay cuts for their workers over failing health of the economy was “the height of hypocrisy by the governor and fraud on Nigerian workers.”

Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said in a statement that Fayose was mischievous in his pro-workers stances, noting that the governor was the most guilty of what he was advising his fellow governors to shun to enable them pay their workers.
He said, “Fayose is mischievous in his pro-workers posturing. This is a man that travels every month end to South Africa and Dubai after collecting federal allocations even when records show that Ekiti has no bilateral pact with these countries.

“This is the governor that sacked many permanent secretaries and other categories of workers. He is the first and only governor that cut the salaries and allowances of the few political office holders he appointed in breach of the law and also cut allowances to civil servants but increased his personal security vote from N150m to N250m but refuses to fund security agencies, thus leading to unprecedented crimes in Ekiti State. Under his watch, Ekiti became the kidnapping capital of the South West.

“The governor asking fellow governors to shun opulence is the only governor in Nigeria going about with outriders on BMW superbikes, each costing millions of naira while exotic cars are the choice for his long convoys.

“He recently by fiat, sold his old 1965 model Mercedes-Benz with current market value of about two hundred and fifty thousand naira (N250,000) to the State Government at a whopping N15m.

“Recently, his sons abroad were captured in pictures celebrating the purchase of their road machines, N48m 2015 Range Rover jeeps, yet back home he armed productive youths as thugs and sent packing thousands of youths engaged in empowerment schemes by former Governor Kayode Fayemi.”
The APC spokesman also accused the governor of weekly importation of female guests from South Africa and Ghana to all-night parties in the Government House, saying that an anti-opulent governor would not indulge in such excesses while refusing to pay workers their entitlements.
“He buys up full pages of advert in newspapers daily costing millions of taxpayers’ money, to abuse the President, yet he cannot pay workers’ salary.

“Fayose dribbled the workers to no end in the misapplication of the bail-out cash. Up till now, many teachers, local government workers and past political office holders have not been paid even though their entitlements were captured in the bailout demand to the Federal Government. Fayose owes certain category of Ekiti workers three months salary while others are owed four months, ” Olatunbosun explained.
