APC-FayoseThe Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has commended the state chapter of the National Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE, for supporting autonomy for local governments as passed by the 19 APC lawmakers in the State House of Assembly.

The party also said it had forgiven teachers who have asked for forgiveness over their stance on former Governor Kayode Fayemi-led administration.

“Some of the teachers apologised on behalf of the others to Fayemi in a phone-in live programme on Adaba FM last week”, the APC said in a statement by its State Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatubosun, on Tuesday.

The party further commended NULGE for speaking out against the Peoples Democratic Party’s faction of the Assembly who voted against autonomy for the Local Governments in the ongoing constitution amendment.

“The members of the Executive Council of NULGE in the state are men of sterling qualities.

“Even at the risk of being hounded and haunted by those who neither know what separation of powers is all about nor have any respect for the rule of law, they voiced their stance on the rejection of the autonomy for local governments by the seven PDP members of the factionalised House of Assembly, who are busy relishing the illegal position they occupy at the moment. We salute their courage.

“The NULGE stance, which has our total support, is commendable while the stance of the PDP-Seven is condemnable, illegal, unconstitutional and of no consequence. We are recording it as one of the several illegalities they are being backed to commit by Governor Fayose”, Olatunbosun added.
