‘Ekiti Workers’ Salary Arrears Will Be Paid In Six Months’- Fayemi

Posted by on July 16th, 2018



The winner of the Saturday’s governorship
election in Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has
said that he will pay the backlog of salaries
owed civil servants in the state within the first
six months of his return to office.
Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress beat
Kolapo Olusola of the Peoples Democratic Party
in a keenly contested race to succeed the
incumbent Governor Ayodele Fayose.
Speaking at his residence in Isan-Ekiti, the
former Minister of Solid Mineral Development,
said Ekiti State lost value under Fayose, while
also promising to re-introduce free education in
the state.
He said, “Ekiti people should expect the eight-
point agenda redoubled. They should expect the
backlog of salaries cleared within the first six
months of my coming to the office. They should
expect re-introduction of free education, including
payment of fees for the West Africa Examination
Council, National Examination Council, National
Business and Technical Examinations Board and
the national entrance examination into tertiary
institutions which they lost out on.
“We will re-introduce social security scheme for
the elderly in an enhanced manner. They should
expect the return of our youth volunteer
programme. Luckily, the Federal Government has
started a programme similar to what we used to
have in Ekiti State, called N-Power. We will add
our own initiative to that programme.
“The outgoing government is not interested in
what happens to the young in our society beyond
using them as thugs and forcing them to eat
crumbs from the table of the master. They
should expect a return to decency, decorum,
integrity, values in Ekiti State. It is about
reclaiming our land and restoring our values
which we have lost in the past four years.”
Meanwhile, an APC chieftain, Prince Dayo
Adeyeye, has congratulated Fayemi on his victory
at the poll.
According to the former Minister of State for
Works, Fayemi’s victory will change the
leadership style in the state, stressing that the
people of Ekiti deserved mature leaders who
value development of state’s human and natural
