EKITI TO CLEAR CIVIL SERVANTS’ SALARIES, ALLOWANCES

By: Doyin Adebusuyi, Ado Ekiti

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose yesterday said political office holders should not expect their salaries until salaries and allowances due to civil servants are cleared.

In a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor berated the former administration over its failure to pay workers’ salaries, saying the situation had badly impacted on their welfare.

He said the government was working to source for funds to pay the salaries as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has alleged plans by the PDP to attack its lawmakers in the House of Assembly today.

The assembly in a statement from the speaker’s spokesman, Mr Wole Olujobi, alleged that it has access to a message mistakenly sent to a former member of the PDP who defected to the APC.

Olujobi said the PDP has urged its members to mobilise to Fajuyi Park by 9 a.m. today with their placards.

“This development followed a similar plan to attack members of APC in the assembly a few days ago which was also foiled when the plan leaked,” Olujobi added.

The assembly urged the governor to call members of his party to order and let Ekiti people live in peace as was the case under Kayode Fayemi, the former governor.

“Refusal of APC lawmakers to join the PDP should not degenerate into physical assault and attacks on properties of the lawmakers. The gains recorded by the APC-led administration in the past four years in the state should endure instead of orchestrating violence that will set our state on the path of destruction.”
