Ekiti State Government has said it is owing workers only May 2015 salary and not three months as rumoured.

Special Assistant to Governor Ayodele Fayose on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, stated this in a statement on Wesnesday in Ado Ekiti.

He said, “As of today, the only salary yet to be paid by the Fayose-led administration is that of May, 2015.



“The Fayose-led government has already cleared the August 2014 salary left unpaid by the APC government, leaving that of September that will be paid as soon as there is improvement in the state finances.”

“Allocation of May that was received was not enough to pay salaries, leaving the government with the option of waiting for June allocation that is expected to be released next week, and the moment that is done, workers will get their May salary.”

“It is also important to point out that apart from the shortfall in the allocation coming to the state from the federation account, the gross mismanagement of the state finances by the immediate past APC government is responsible for the present poor state of the state finances.”

Olayinka said the Fayose-led administration was able to pay salary because of the six months moratorium obtained from banks from which the immediate past government obtained loans.

“Painfully, these credit facilities were used to execute income-generating projects, and the repercussion of the financial recklessness of the past administration is the parlous economic situation of the state now.

“However, with the cooperation of the people, especially the workers, the government will continue to strive to rescue the state from the financial predicament that it was plunged into by the immediate past government,” he said.
