Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose will not leave the news, he has apparently sworn.
Today, he pleaded with the people of the state to show understanding for his inability to pay workers’ salaries.
The governor, in a statewide broadcast explained to the people of the state that they only got N751million as allocation from the federation account for the month of April as against N1.3billion received in March.
He urged striking workers in the state therefore to suspend their action.
“Strike is not the way out”, he said.
“I know workers have not been coming to work, but I don’t have the moral right to stop them. But I can only deploy what I receive from the federation account. If workers want to go on strike, I sympathise with them, but we will be here waiting till when they come back. I can’t sell myself to pay workers. Even the government house where I live does not have diesel to power generator at times.
“I want the workers and members of the public to show understanding.
“This is not about Ekiti , it is an issue that affects all of us.”
Just before he returns to attacking President Muhammad Buhari for ruining the federal economy – and everything else.
