Fayose begins end of tenure activities, says workers should ask Fayemi for their salary
OUTGOING Governor Fayose, who stated that he promised not to leave the state a debtor of salaries, explained that he had planned to clear what he said was four months salary arrears with Paris Club Refund and budget support for the state.
But he said the federal government withheld the state’s Paris Club refund and budget support, saying this was “because they don’t want Fayose to pay the salary arrears.”
The governor said he knew the money would be released to the incoming governor, saying workers in the state should, therefore, collect their outstanding four months salary arrears from the incoming governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
He said: “They paid other states Paris Refund, they didn’t pay Ekiti; Fayemi should help me pay the money. They didn’t pay N2.2 billion budget support fund.
“My promise is fulfilled but the money is in the hands of government. They should help me to pay.”
