Ekiti Losses N500M Monthly During Fayemi’s Govt -Fayose
Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has accused the immediate past government of All Progressives Congress( APC) of short changing the state to the tune of N500 million monthly through the e-payment system.
A statement made available to newsmen by the Special Assistant to the State governor on Public Communications and New Media on Sunday, added that the verification exercise was aimed at blocking close to N500 million being lost to ghost workers monthly through the e-payment system contracted to a private company by the immediate past administration .
To this reason, the governor hinted that Verification of 48,977 workers in the Ekiti State public service will commence this week, Tuesday, and last till next week Monday, while payment of April salary will begin on Wednesday.
The governor’s aide disclosed that salary of April will be paid as workers are verified, adding that; “Those insinuating that the verification exercise was meant to delay payment of April salary are just playing cheap politics because the arrangement is such that; the moment verification is concluded on daily basis, salary of those cleared will be paid.
