October 18, 2017 – Group Slams Fayose For Diverting Workers Salaries & Pensioners Fund, Calls Him Callous & Greedy

A group under the umbrella of Ekiti State Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has expressed shock at alleged diversion of funds meant to pay pensioners and workers by the Ayo Fayose administration.

Reacting to a report by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), which indicted the Fayose government for allegedly diverting N680 million bailout fund, the CNPP described the alleged diversion as “callous and greedy”.


A statement released yesterday in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, by CNPP’s Director of Publicity, Kunle Omotayo, said 16 political parties in the state met and regretted that pensioners and workers were owed several arrears after the state had received intervention funds from the Federal Government.

The statement said:

“For the first time in the history of Ekiti State, workers have turned petty thieves, stealing pots of soup and some stealing farm produce to stay alive, while several others have become beggars before they can make ends meet…”

    Those owed workers should mobilize kidnap and assasinate Fayose.

    This heartless governor is a total disgrace and disaster to good people of Ekiti state. While all the SouthWest states are striving for excellence and working for better life for all the people and residents of their states, gov. Ayodele Fayose is busy looting the state to treasure to bankruptcy. It is still a misery how once disgraced and impeached governor of Ekiti found his way back to power because of election fraud and bribery ocastrated by failed Jonathan administration. Fayose is the worse thing that befall Ekiti state since the state was created. He will not go unpunished either by the law or by the mighty hand of God.

    Fayose can quickly come out to vilifying Buhari. He knows how to play politics at the expense of Ekiti people because he has nothing to loose. He is living fine with his children and he has no feeling if some state workers and pensioners.

    President Buhari dole out some bucks as emergency funds to take care of state workers salary, most of these governors pocketed this money and kept playing politics, they continue saying negative things about Buhari. Buhari is only one individual but most of our governors are even worst than Buhari. Can they give us one reason why they have not been paying these workers?.
