Ogunsuyi said, “We are going to use the ‘Budget Adjustment Support facility’ to pay backlog of workers salaries. That is what it will be mainly used for. It is even not enough to clear the arrears. The workers will be paid this week because that is topmost on our priority for now.”

When contacted, the state president of Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, Mr. Bunmi Ajimoko, while commending the Federal Government for the initiative, advised the state government not to divert the money to other use.

“We will wait and see. We hope the state government will use it for what is intended because workers are passing through a difficult time,” he said.

  1. Honestly, I need someone to redefine what vedatter means, the same govt Fayoose criticized for China trip, the same one chance govt. can now still borrow him money to cater for his state, any state government that would not think of a better way to increase the turnover of his IGR is not worthy to be a leader.

  2. Where are the wailer’s supporting Fayoshe the noise maker… The man he is busy castigating is the one that will save his ass….

  3. Propaganda governance is what Fayose govt is practicing in Ekiti…you are now relying on FG loans that you criticised to pay the salary arrears owed ? smh….Ekiti wake up before Fayose drop you in the ditch
