The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate, Ayo Fayose has described the volte face by Governor Kayode Fayemi on the conduct of competency test for teachers and the implementation of the 27% teachers allowance as “voodoo, gimmick, deceit and a mere political statement”.
Fayose, who was reacting to the development, urged the teachers not to allow themselves to be hoodwinked by Fayemi’s promises, which he said are fake, adding that the All Progressives Congress (APC) which emerged from Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) was not known to be upright or faithful to promises.
Speaking through his media aide, Mr Idowu Adelusi, Fayose, who is a former governor of the state, advised the teachers and people of Ekiti that returning Fayemi and APC to power “is another four years of hunger, deceit, retrogression, capital flight, re-introduction of political competency, sack and humiliation of teachers, retrenchment of local government workers and ban of okada operation”.
The PDP candidate told Ikere people to ask Fayemi why he had to wait until he (Fayose) had said that he would continue with the work.
According to Fayose, “this is a deceit of the 21st century and only a fool would believe Fayemi, but Ikere people and Ekiti in general are wiser”.
He, therefore, implored the people to reject APC totally and vote for him to return the state to an era of economic boom and progress.
