“Fayose Has Stolen N720M From Ekiti Like He Did In 2004 Poultry Project Scam” – APC Raises Alarm

June 19, 2015 – “Fayose Has Looted N720Million From Ekiti State Like He Did In 2004 Poultry Project Scam” – APC Raises Alarm

The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of awarding N720m to himself as the arrears of salaries and allowances of his unfinished first term.

The governor was impeached on October 16, 2006 by the then Ekiti State House of Assembly.

But the Supreme Court in a recent judgment said the impeachment was null and void because due process was not followed.

The state APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, in a statement on Thursday, said it was “selfish and callous” for the governor to pay himself arrears for his unfinished term when he had yet to pay workers and pensioners in the state.

The party said it was equally “shameful and heartless” for the governor to refuse to pay statutory pensions to Ekiti retirees after serving the state meritoriously.

It added that the government had also cancelled the N5,000 social security scheme paid to 20,000 elderly Ekiti people, introduced by former Governor Kayode Fayemi’s administration.

The party also accused the governor of refusing to pay traditional rulers for five months while also refusing to pay gratuity to retired workers since he assumed office.

The APC said, “Though he admitted he owes only May salary as if he has any excuse to owe Ekiti workers for one day, as we write, over 10,000 Ekiti workers have yet to receive their April salaries. This is because not all workers he claimed to have paid have actually received their salaries.

“What he has been doing is to pay 10 out of 300 workers in a ministry and then go to town with his propaganda that he has fully paid workers.

“Only last week, he electronically paid N13m into the accounts of each of the 16 local governments and collected the cash back from the council chairmen for purported joint projects like he did in his fraudulent poultry project in 2004.

“We are asking Fayose once again what he is doing with all the monies he saved from the empowerment programmes he cancelled. We also want to know where the election contract deductions of N650m monthly are going. Who are the beneficiaries? Are they more important than Ekiti workers?”

    Is A Ekiti People still complaning?, if yes, please stop that.
    Have told the state early before the election of this administrate in ekiti that they should have special fasting and prayer to ask for the peace and mercy over the state, so what are they complaining for?.
    In that revelation, the holy spirit revealed to me that the first,second and third year of the administrative will hard for the people of the state by the governor but they will benfit the last year of the administrative.
    I decree, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, the Lord peace in his mercy over Ekiti State and Nigeria as a nation in Jesus name(AMEN)

    Now I can understand why the crime rate in our country Nigeria soar significantly. It is because of bad attitude and lack of initiatives by those in leadership position toward money. How do you expect the family of four who are living from pay check to pay check to survive without paying the breadwinner the basic salary from April? and you went ahead and pay yourself almost close to 1 Billion Naira. It doesn’t matter to you if workers feed their family in as much you can get enough for your family. Fayose it seems you don’t know what leadership means. Taking care of those people working under you even if Federal Government has not remit money to state coffer then you have to use your brain to come up with different dimension so that your workers can be paid on time. Since you came in through the back door and your intension is different from what is on the ground, you will continue to fail as a Governor unless you change your behavior. What is happening in Nigeria now is making me having a second taught weather we can be able to set our priority straight. Nobody really wants to bend or sacrifice any effort to move this Country forward. We are being govern by useless, unscrupulous, selfish and evil set of people who never have empathy blood running through their veins. The social security program initiated by former Governor Fayemi is a very reasonable program for elderly and helpless senior citizens who can at least assure our elderly people of some token to spend at the end of the month. Thank you Dr. Fayemi for bringing the western style of social security program. Now Fayose since you scrap this program how will you help your elderly ones? My hearth really bleeds for this Country because we are 180 million now, what is going to become this Country if we are 300 million? I’m just trying to apply little bit of Malthusian theory on population here since our population is growing geometrically and we get stuck with lack of initiatives.
