APC calls for Fayose resignation

06 June 2016, 10:34

Ado Ekiti - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has called for the resignation of Gov Ayodele Fayose.

The party described  the governor as an “unserious leader not prepared for the challenges of governance.”

The party was reacting to Fayose's statement on Saturday, that he had joined the ongoing labour strike in the state in solidarity with the workers.

Government workers in the state are on strike over five months unpaid salaries among other contentious issues.

The party in a statement issued on Sunday by its state Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said Fayose has turned a serious business of governance to ‘a moonlight drama’.

The statement reads: Governor Ayodele Fayose's solidarity strike shows that he is a man bereft of finesse to be entrusted with the leadership of the people for development.”

“Fayose’s self-imposed strike could not have been in solidarity with Ekiti workers, but a mockery of their present suffering caused by him and which he obviously enjoys."

“Fayose’s lies, inhuman and reckless statement on television that he cannot sell his children to pay salary is an acceptance of failure, so he should resign from that position.

“There is starvation in the state over failure to pay salary, which has made workers’ conditions so bad that some of them have resorted to stealing from neighbours before they can eat.

“Thieves are all over the place carting away foods in the process of cooking in the kitchen, while raw foods and soup ingredients, such as yams, garri, tomatoes, pepper, parcels of ‘eba’ are being stolen by hungry Ekiti people.

“How many Ekiti workers can afford to send their children to any of the secondary schools in Ekiti which Fayose has heavily taxed, let alone sending them to the highbrow schools that Fayose’s children attend abroad? This is very wicked and inhuman.”
