EKITI: You Were Voted To Do What I Couldn’t, Stop Complaining – Fayose Tells Fayemi

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has called on incumbent Governor Kayode Fayemi to do what he couldn’t for the workers in the state by paying them their arrears of unpaid salaries and emoluments.

Fayose was reacting a statement by Fayemi at a meeting he had with the civil servants as well as a cross-section of labour leaders at the Government House, Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, September 17, 2019.

Fayemi had told labour leaders that the reason for the irregular payments of salaries and pension in the state was because the civil service were currently being owed N57billion as arrears of unpaid salaries and emoluments. He said:

“It is sad to reel out such a humongous figure because it can create panic for you and I.

”But let me say that we cannot pay everything in one fell swoop, but the 2019 promotion arrears will be given immediate attention while others will be defrayed by instalment.

”It becomes difficult to pay once because Ekiti gets a little above N5 Million monthly, with the state getting like N3 billion, while the local governments receive little above N2 billion monthly.“

In reaction via his Twitter page, Fayose urged the governor to stop complaining and pay workers, reminding him that he was voted to do what he couldn’t.

“I read without surprise & as usual @kfayemi usual brandishing of figures owed Ekiti workers & retirees by my administration,” he wrote.

“Without joining issues with him, rather than public service announcement, I enjoin him to pay the workers. Moreso he was “voted” for to do what I couldn’t do.”
