A stalwart of the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti ,Bamidele Faparusi , has said Governor Ayodele Fayose is treating workers of the state like slaves.
Faparusi, in a statement, claimed that local government workers through their President, Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees, Bunmi Ajimoko, had to prostrate and roll on the ground before the governor agreed to pay their 2015 entitlements.
He alleged that the governor only paid the local government workers their 2015 deductions and 2015 leave bonus.
Even at N2.5b wage bill, the staggering N9.9 billion received by both local and state government can pay three months salaries for both State and local government’s civil servants and the 2015 leave bonus across board.
So, Governor Fayose should stop treating the workers like slaves. He should know that the State runs a full-fledged monolithic economy resting primarily on civil service architecture and whatever affected that arm will permeate to all sectors like Ekiti people are currently groaning under hardship under the reign of terror as typified by Governor Fayose.
I want to plead with Nigerians to ignore Fayose’s ranting and perceive him as being grossly infantile and callow to be a governor under an ideal society except in a degenerated society like Nigeria.
