Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has told political office holders in the state not to expect their salaries until he had paid the state workers the over two months salaries owed them from the previous administration.
Fayose, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, lampooned the immediate past administration of Dr. Kayode Fayemi over its failure to pay the workers their salaries.
He said the situation had caused the workers untold hardship, adding that the new administration was working round the clock to source for funds to offset the outstanding salaries of the workers as soon as possible.
In an unrelated development, the State Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party, Kola Oluwawole, has resigned.
A statement released on Thursday by the party said Oluwawole resigned to enable him contest the February election into the State House of Assembly.
“The resignation takes immediate effect”, the statement said.
