The All Progressives Congress (APC) has alleged that Ekiti people are in suffering under the leadership of Governor Ayodele Fayose.
National Chairman of the APC Adams Oshiomhole made the allegation on Tuesday at his party’s rally in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti capital.
He said: “My comrades, you know what your situation was and what it is today.
“Yesterday, I spoke with the workers and they lamented to me that even teachers have not been paid for one year, civil servants, local government workers, even pensioners.
“But then, you will remember that our own President Buhari asked Fayose and some others, ‘How do you sleep when you have not paid your worker over one year?’
“And Fayose collected N10 billion for bailout to go and bailout the salaries of Ekiti workers and pensioners. Fayose decided to bail out his own pocket but our president did not lament about that. He cautioned him, ‘Don’t do that again’.
“Another bailout, N10 billion, Fayose collected, he came to Ekiti and put the money where he put it and as we speak, you know more than me that Ekiti people have been pauperised and because they have not been paid, they can’t pay their rents, they can’t go to the market, and when no one goes to the market, the economy will not boom.
“But I am not surprised because he comes from poverty development party.”
