A Chieftain of the APC in Ekiti State, Mr. Makinde Araoye is banking on the biting poverty situation among civil servants in the state as a result of the inability of the PDP led government to pay salary and owing workers several months arrears to emerged winner in the upcoming governorship election.
Mr. Makinde expressed confidence that the people would vote massively for the APC candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, having experienced biting poverty in the last three years due to gross incompetence manifested in Fayose’s inability to pay workers’ salaries and pension.
“It is wicked and killing for a governor to owed workers and pensioners eight-month arrears in an environment that was heavily anchored on the civil service, saying this had further lowered the standard of living of Ekiti populace”, the APC chieftain stated.
The APC Chieftain further castigated and labeled as poor performance, the performance recorded by Governor Ayodele Fayose’s government, and deduct that this would help in making victory easy for his party in the upcoming July 14 governorship election.
Araoye made his position known when he spoke to journalists in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday. He pointed out that the time has come for workers to appropriate their votes in a more judicious and appropriate way, by voting for Dr. Fayemi based on his track records and belief in running a worker-friendly policy.
“It sounded unfathomable for Fayose to intentionally kill those legacy programmes initiated by Fayemi that could have shored up the State internally generated revenue, pointing out that the measure was largely responsible for the failure of governance in Ekiti” Mr. Makinde added.
