"Remain On Strike If You Like, I Cannot Sell Myself To Pay You" Fayose Tells Striking Ekiti Workers




Ekiti State workers on Thursday began an indefinite strike over government’s inability to pay five months salary arrears and for failing to refund deductions made from their December 2015 salaries.
In a broadcast today, the governor, while responding to the strike, said the state only got N751million allocation from the federation account.

“I know workers have not been coming to work, but I don’t have the moral right to stop them . But I can only deploy what I receive from the federation account,” Mr. Fayose said.

“If workers want to go on strike, I sympathize with them but we will be here waiting till when they come back. I can’t sell myself to pay workers. Even the government house where I live does not have diesel to power generator at times.

“I want the workers and members of the public to show understanding. This is not about Ekiti, it is an issue that affects all of us.”
