The Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused the Executive Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose of gross mismanagement of the bailout fund he recently received from the Central Bank.
The opposition party (APC) also maintained that Governor Fayose should come out and explain how he has spent the bailout fund so far.
The accusation was contained in a statement issued on October 18, 2015 by APC‘s spokesman, Mr. Taiwo Olatunbosun. The spokesman accused Fayose of failing to pay 2014 September salary and leave bonus. According to him, “He (Fayose) has also refused to pay September, half October salary, severance and furniture allowances to former political office holders who were captured in the bailout fund protocol. The salaries paid into primary school teachers‘ accounts were reversed 30 minutes after they received bank alerts”.
He further warned the Governor against his plan to divert the bailout fund and declared that workers of Ekiti State would not accept his excuse for further delaying the payment of their entitlements by saying “We have it on good authority that the Governor is planning to divert the bailout and we warn that the era of impunity and bare-face fraud is over. We call on anti-graft agencies to help appeal to the Governor to pay workers, pensioners and former political appointees their entitlements and these agencies should monitor the disbursement of the bailout cash to ensure it is spent as approved by the Federal Government”.
