Dec 27, 2014 – Ekiti State Teachers Cursed Fayose For Giving Them Tiny Christmas Chickens

It was an interesting sight yesterday as primary and secondary school teachers from all over Ekiti State converged on Agric Olope area of Ado-Ekiti to collect the chickens that Governor Ayodele Fayose promised them for Christmas.

As early as 9am, teachers had started to throng the distribution venue to collect their chickens. When Governor Fayose arrived with a deluge of security aides in his traditional short-sleeve T-shirt, he threw victory punch to the air with the supporters he brought in buses responding with shouts of Oshoko.

The whole stretch of Agric Olope of Ajilosun was jam-packed with the vehicles of the teachers that came from all over the state. The other end of Agric Olope by Matthew Street was a no-go area as teachers, who parked their cars far away from the distribution venue, trekked long distances.

By noon, the picture of what would emerge at the end of the day had started to take shape as teachers went home with pigeon-size chickens cursing the governor in unprintable words. Some left in annoyance shouting “Sai Buhari, Sai Buhari”.fayose christmas chicken

When the governor saw the anger of the teachers as they shoved and shoved in an uncontrollable scramble to collect their chickens, he offered to decentralize the distribution, but the teachers had already lost their patience, as they left in anger.

One teacher from Omuo-Ekiti lamented that he had spent about N800 to travel to Ado-Ekiti to collect a chicken that sells for less than N1000. One of the friends of a teacher who parked his car about 400 metres away from the venue with a green Nissan Primera lamented ever wasting his time “for this nonsense”. The man was more angry as the car of his friend broke down with bad brake cable where they parked. As at 6:30pm, mechanics were still battling to bring the car to life.

Surrounded by four other teachers, one of them said that he knew the whole exercise would be a fluke immediately he learnt that teachers in both primary and secondary schools were lumped together for the exercise.

“I know it is going to be like this. More than half of the teachers won’t get the fowls. Elomirin a kari so dele loni leyin ugba kaan ba ruun kankan gba leyin kaan duro titi titi ninu orirun (some people will go dejected back home empty-handed after waiting long hours in the sun).

As teachers moved enmasse in anger from the place, the governor pleaded that they should come back, promising that he would add N2 million to be shared among the teachers. This angered the teachers the more, as they started shouting:”How much will one teacher get if N2m is shared among more than 18,000 teachers in both primary and secondary schools?”

As The Trumpeter tried to take the photographs of the teachers as they were leaving in anger, some covered their faces to avoid being photographed.

To everybody’s chagrin, Fayose on his way to the office abruptly stopped at Matthew street junction along Ajilsun and sat at a phone vendor booth making phone calls while traffic built up heavily along the road.

  4. It serves them right . All they needed was food and they have been given pigeons. I can’t believe Ekiti people can be so dumb with all the academicians there. This guy called Fayose is a crook.
    I have no sympathy for Ekiti people.

  5. Be careful of what you wish for. Ekitians are the most Illiterate people on earth, it is not by the amount of professors, but the amount of possessors. They only profess, but they do not possess NOTHING….
    Even this madness will not happen in the North where people call the Hausas almajiris. This is shame on Ekitians that they can be bought this cheap and they open wide their mouth that they have professor in every home, of what use are the professor when an illiterate ruling professors that do not possess nothing. Most of this primary schools teachers are MSc and PhD holders driving 1000 miles just a for pigeon sized chicken.
    Imagine peeps spending N800 to go beg for less than a N1000 pigeon sized chicken, of what use id ur education.
    This rascal again is now planning to share N2 million to 18,000 hungry teachers of Ekiti if my math’s knowledge is still good, every teachers will go home with N111 (Hundred and Eleven Naira)… Are you kidding me? Ekiti People what has befallen you guys. You guys sold you vote for a bag of rice now you are upset and angry with urself.
    This rascal again abruptly stopped on the major busy road at a phone vendor to make an unnecessary call that lead to a heavily built traffic, Ekiti people are doomed….

  6. When l heard Fayose was going to give chicken for the Xmas,l said in my mind that this useless guy has come again with his premetive way of performing,how on earth someone who called himself a governor went about sharing Rice & chicks all about? What an insult, is he looking for votes again or turned himself to a jester, only heaven will tell. Fayose cannot tell Nigerians and Ekiti people that he has not purchased a house in Abuja in the last13 weeks. EFCC should commence investigation urgently. Fayose l want you to stop liying to Ekiti people that there are no money coming to Ekiti. You have to let us koo the truth.

  7. What is wrong with these teachers? the village people were being blame for mortgage their future for a bag of Rice. How come we have some teachers who are learned yet followed the footstep of old folks who have little or no education? One thing we don’t understand in this Country is, we are the the only one that can fight for our right. We will continue to remain in this type of situation if we fail to stand up and speak up to let these rogues called politicians know what you really want. Do you think Fayose is doing you a favor? he is spending Ekiti State’s money which is your money. For every fowl given to you, do you know how much he is going to deduct from the state coffer? Ekiti people need to be wise.

  8. This is good for ekiti Pple! They ve seen. The outcome of stomach infrasructure. Kudos to fayose for teaching. Them a lesson.

  9. Hahahahahaha what an insult they thought they are teachers not knowing he (fayose) is the teacher, he is teaching them not to sell their votes no matter what. I am very sure this is just one out of many. This is the fruit of selling your vote. I pray u learn your lessons and be wise come 2015.

  10. Ekiti people are hungry people,that why they sale their future for bag of rice and bird for head of Thugs as Gov.
