Ekiti - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has criticised Governor Ayodele Fayose over the withdrawal of the two months’ salaries already paid into the workers' bank accounts.
Workers, mainly civil servants in the state had last week received alerts from their banks that their salaries for November and December 2015 had been paid into their accounts.
The party in a statement on Sunday by the state Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, accused the governor of fraudulent conduct to sustain his grip on the “thoroughly abused” people of Ekiti people.

The statement said the governor did the same thing to primary school teachers last year when he learnt that they were about to embark on a strike.
Teachers in the state had declared a two-day warning strike over the refusal of Governor Fayose to pay their September 2014 salary arrears and 2014 leave bonuses.
The state chairman of the Nigerian Union of Teachers, said that the organization would consider the next step to take at the expiration of the warning strike beginning today, February 8.
