APC begs Fayose to pay workers, pensioners


By; Oladele Adedayo, Ado-Ekiti.
Disturbed by the pitiable standard of living that workers and pensioners are undergoing in Ekiti state, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti South Senatorial District of the state has urged Governor Ayo Fayose to, as a matter of urgency, pay civil servants the five-month arrears of salaries owed them and six month arrears owed pensioners.
The Party also demanded the payment of entitlements due to medical doctors and workers to end the culture of strikes in the health institutions in the state.
These are parts of the resolutions reached at the APC Ekiti South Senatorial meeting held in Emure-Ekiti contained in a communique signed by the Chairman, Kayode Babade and the Secretary, Muyiwa Akinbobola.
According to the communique which was made available to our correspondent on Monday, the APC condemned the construction of a flyover in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
It suggested that the fund for the flyover be converted to fix inter-local government roads and township road networks.
The party demanded the return of all monies allegedly collected by the governor from corporate organizations in Ekiti State into Government coffers in respect of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The APC equally condemned the tax imposed on school pupils in the state which, according to it, “had never been done anywhere in the world.”
“We therefore urge the governor to refund all taxes so far collected and reopen the schools locked up for default payment in the interest of our future generation,” the party said.
The party condemned what it called “the incessant attacks” by Fayose on President Muhammadu Buhari saying “the governor should know that he is not doing Ekiti proud as Ekitis are decent people imbued with sound virtues and values.”
It commended the President and the National Assembly for the passage of the 2016 Budget which would afford Nigerians opportunity to benefit from the party’s development agenda for the nation.
