Fayemi Distributes Free Rice To Ekiti Residents As Fayose Refuses To Pay Workers Salaries
December 24, 2017 – Former Ekiti Governor Fayemi Distributes Free Rice To Ekiti State Residents As Fayose Refuses To Pay Workers Salaries
Former Governor of Ekiti state and the Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has directed that rice be distributed to the residents of Ekiti State to celebrate Christmas and New Year festivities.
The distribution, which is being handled by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Executive Committee in conjunction with JKF Centre, started Saturday afternoon. One hundred and seventy seven (177) wards across the state are to receive their shares while another consignments are for residents irrespective of party affiliations.
Party leaders, community leaders, trade, religious and women groups are not left out in the sharing of the goodies. Director of JKF Centre, Mr. Biodun Omoleye, said Fayemi, who is also former governor, is aware
of the economic challenges among the people, especially the less-privileged in the state where workers and pensioners are owed between eight and nine months salaries and entitlements.
He said Fayemi decided to identify with the people by giving out food items to all the residents in their respective wards across the state irrespective of political leanings to enable them share in the joy of the yuletide.
He said the minister will continue to assist the residents in tackling social dislocations caused by non-payment of salaries, including embarking on deepening youth entrepreneurial activities in the New Year to
mitigate unemployment among young people.

Fayose has lost his conscience and sense of humanity. He really deserve to be tried in the court of law and be punished severely after his fruitless and wasted tenor is completed. The EFCC need to begin making preparation for his trial from now so that the victims of corruption in his state will find solace when justice is been served. Conscienceless criminal.

Though I love Fayoses dogedness but I hate his rascality and talks out of senseless reasoning. Fayemi performed his humanitarian duty to help his people. God should please count me among those that will perform humanitarian expectations in Jesus name. God bless Buroda Fayose,God bless Egbon mi Fayemi, God bless Ekiti state, God bless Buhari, God bless Nigeria. Up APC. Up Nigeria.

if fayose is owing 9months salary,I will categorically state that he (fayemi) was the architect by looting everything and still go ahead to burrow #25b which is reason the state is in debt till today,meanwhile, he left 2months unpaid salary while leaving office. So,how does 5month fayose is owing amount to 9mnths in his calendar…..
