#OtvPHOTOS: APC attack Fayose over the malnourished chickens he shared in Ekiti



Last week, Governor Ayodele Fayose put smiles on the
faces of citizens of Ekiti state by distributing rice, chicken
and other consumable items to them .
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has
however condemned the action, saying the chickens were
In a statement released by the State Publicity Secretary of
the APC, Taiwo Olatubosun, the party said the Governor
had turned Ekiti people to beggars by giving them
handouts in form of, “kwashiorkor-infested chickens not
bigger in size than ailing pigeons.”
“Ekiti people have now seen the deceit of a man who says he
is a friend of the common man with his callous attitude to the
people he claims to love during the period the people are
supposed to be happy.
“Governor Fayose gave two ‘congos’ of rice and miserable
palm oil not up to 1 litre, all totaling N700 to each worker that
the governor had earlier deducted N2,000 from their salary for
Christmas gift.
“This is in contrast to Governor Kayode Fayemi, who
empowered the people through agriculture, cooperative and
employment and apprenticeship schemes involving over
2,000 youths, which helped the people to earn a living and
made them happy for four years as against Fayose’s
tokenism as Christmas gifts.”
“Fayemi last year paid civil servants 30 per cent of their
salary as Xmas bonus. He also paid their leave bonus while
their December salary was paid on December 18. In contrast,
Fayose has refused to pay civil servants their September
salary even though he had collected September allocation
from the Federal Government. Civil servants are yet to be
paid as at December 22.”
“ Last year, apart from 30 per cent bonus and leave bonus, all
offices in MDAS were given gifts but all these have gone
under Fayose as workers are now praying for their September
salary let alone December salary or Xmas or leave bonus. ”
The APC spokesman said Fayose had worsened the
conditions of Ekiti workers by making it plain that he had no
money to pay December salary even though he had received
December allocation, describing the governor’s action as
“callous and insensitive”.
“Governor Fayose should ask Ekiti citizens how Fayemi
added value to their lives for four years. He didn’t wait till
Xmas period to pay N10,000 to over 20,000 youths in
volunteer services for four years. He didn’t wait till Xmas
before he paid N5,000 to 20, 000 elderly people in his social
security scheme for four years in addition to feeding them
with both cooked and raw food all year round.
“From what Fayose is doing, he is deliberately encouraging
poverty so that people can be subservient to him and we
sympathise with Ekiti workers and people who have suddenly
been inflicted with miserable conditions by a governor touted
to be the friend of the masses,” APC said.
Paying deaf ears to the rebuke, the governor visited the
state police on Tuesday, December 23, and yet again,
distributed chickens to the officers on duty.
