Fayose stops allowances of political office holders

The Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has directed the immediate stoppage of payment of running grants and other allowances to all political office holders in the state until the payment of all outstanding salaries and allowances of public servants.

According to the Fayose’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor took the decision as a temporary measure to make funds available for the payment of workers’ salaries and allowances.

Olayinka, in a statement, on Tuesday, described the roles played by the All Progressives Congress-controlled state House Assembly in the N25bn bond and other bank loans taken by former Governor Kayode Fayemi’s government as unacceptable.

He said the “APC lawmakers collaborated with Fayemi to mortgage Ekiti and the future of its people.”

The Chief Press Secretary to Fayemi, Yinka Oyebode, said: “We are not going to dignify a lawless government, a government that seeks to emasculate the judiciary and seeks to rubbish the value of Omoluabi, which Ekiti is noted for, with a response.”

“The immediate past government showed transparency by going to the capital market to get the bond in 2011. Over N15bn on the bond has been paid. And what law says a governor cannot take a bond? Did Fayose not take loans when he was governor in his first term? Has he not applied for a loan now? You cannot get capital market bond without approval from the FG. The government is confused.”
