Ekiti Civil Servants Reject Fayose’s Free Christmas Clothes, Demand Payment Of Salaries
December 15, 2017 – Ekiti Civil Servants To Fayose: Pay Us Our Salaries, Our Kids Don’t Need Free Christmas Clothes
Ekiti Civil Servants Reject Fayose’s Free Christmas Clothes For Kids Demand Payment Of Salaries
Civil Servants in Ekiti have appealed to Governor Ayo Fayose to accord priorities to the payment of backlog of salary arrears owed them rather than distributing free Christmas gifts to Children.
The workers under the umbrella of EWF (Enlightened Workers’ Forum) urged Fayose to pay all arrears before Christmas.
Here is a statement released by the group’s Coordinator, Mike Bamidele in Ado Ekiti today:
“We are still at a loss why the governor still owes core civil servants five months arrears, workers in institutions on subventions seven months and local government workers and primary school teachers nine months.
“Rather than making sincere and concrete efforts to pay our salaries, the governor is busy distributing Christmas clothes for 20,000 children.
“If he pays their parents regularly, it will be easy for them to buy clothes for their children. It is not the business of government to be buying Christmas clothes for children and this has turned Ekiti to a laughing stock.
“Offering to buy Christmas clothes for children when salaries are not paid is an attempt to play politics with the poverty of the people and turn the innocent kids to pawns on the political chess board.
“We reject this Christmas Clothes for Children project in its entirety; all we need are our salaries and allowances. Let the governor look for means to pay them so that we can have relief.
“A labourer deserves his wages and the sweat of his labour must not dry on his forehead. We have worked for this money, it is our right and not privilege, the governor must pay our salaries.
“We are also using this medium to call on the Federal Government to investigate how bailout funds, Paris Club refunds, Budget Support Funds sent to Ekiti State were spent.
“We believe if these monies are deployed to payment of workers, all these arrears would have been offset by now.”

THESE ARE the kind of leaders we have in this country. I weep for this nation. I have long lost faith in Nigeria and their leaders.

Until the masses take away fear and come together to protest against Nigeria government,nothing will change. How can someone be working and no salary for 9 good months,then you still continue working..working for what?

Nigeria is the only Country where its leaderships are being cold towards their peoples problem. Ask Fayose what he ate last Night and how often he eats?. Look at his neck. Welfare his people meant nothing to him. A good leader should be able to make a sacrifice for his people even if it’s possible to go hungry for his people.
Leadership does not mean having in your possession peoples money and start converting it for your own use. If Fayose has never been paid for 3 months as a Governor, I bet you he would have discontinue going to that office. Fayose is one of those governors who have no brain.
