Ado-Ekiti—The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Ekiti State has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of profligacy and insensitivity to workers’ plight, saying his constant trips pose serious threat to the state’s lean purse.
The party wondered how the governor could find it convenient to travel to Dubai for Christmas holidays, while civil servants live in miserable conditions during the Yuletide.
The party accused the governor of refusal to pay workers salary for three months while embarking on Christmas foreign trip through over-bloated expenses costing Ekiti people N250 million.
Dispelling the allegation, the Commissioner for Information, Mr Lanre Ogunsuyi, said the APC allegation is following the usual ludicrous accusation.
According to Ogunsuyi; “The governor was on holiday like every other worker who has worked conscientiously throughout the year, it was not an official journey and it means the governor will be responsible for all the expenses, because he travelled as Mr Fayose and not as Governor Fayose.
APC Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, in a statement described the governor’s Sunday trip to Dubai as the height of insensitivity and wickedness for a governor who always calls himself peoples’ governor.
