RECORDS AVAILABLE TO PUBLIC ACCESS HAVE SHOWN WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT THE WELFARE (SALARIES) OF EKITI STATE WORKFORCE UNDER FAYOSE WAS NEVER AN ISSUE FOR CONSIDERATION!!….. RE: Paris Fund Refund.
The then popular Ekiti Street slogan “EBORA” toun je Paris fund is indeed a Fact!!

Late Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s song is NOT a satire, as the real live enactment played out in Ekiti under former governor FAYOSE!!!
🎼you be thief!, I no be thief, you dey steal, I no dey steal, you be robber, I no be robber, you be armed robber, I no be armed robber. Argument about stealing, somebody to take something wey belong to another person🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼🎼
A FEW NOTABLE REFERENCE POINTS:
“The refund has however landed Governor Ayodele Fayose in fresh trouble with the Federal Government after it was found that he collected N8.877 billion but could only pay one month out of the eight-month salary arrears he owed workers in the state.” – https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!topic/usaafricadialogue/12ynBbY2VBw
“Fayose was also said to have paid a curious 13th month salary as bonus while the arrears of seven-month salaries owed the workers were left unpaid.”
Eventually, all Paris Club refund of each state will be reduced by the UBEC counterpart fund NOT paid by the state. Ekiti is one of those states…
Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, says Ayodele Fayose, his predecessor, received N18.4 billion bailout fund from the federal government but refused to pay workers’ salaries.
Fayemi said this on “Meet Your Governor”, a monthly interactive programme he introduced after he was sworn in October.
He promised to give the people of the state a forensic audit financial report of the state when his administration clocks 100 days in office.
“We will give Ekiti people forensic comprehensive report on finances in our hundred days in office. Ekiti tate has not received intervention funds from federal government under my watch,” he said.
“Former governor Ayodele Fayose collected N18.4 billion from the coffers of the federal government. It’s sad that those who praised Fayose government that took the over N18 billion Paris Fund from the federal government and failed to pay backlog of salaries are the ones lying against this government that just clocked two months in office.
“We decided not to appoint political office holders in other to pave way for workers salary.”
The governor also said security officers in the state now enjoy allowances to motivate them.
