Like Fayose,Like Aregbesola
Aregbesola’s decision to release workers full
salary just weeks to the governorship election
followed the pattern of his state counterpart,
Ayodele Fayose who allegedly paid workers in
the state the sum of N3000 ahead of the July
14 governorship election.
The last time Fayose paid workers salary in
Ekiti State was December 2017, but allegedly
credited the account of civil servants in the
state, with N3, 000 to encourage them to vote
in the elections.
ICIR reported that Osun State Commissioner for
Information, Adelani Baderinwa denied
insinuations that the payment of full salary by
the state government was to motivate civil
servants to cast their vote for the All
Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party
in the next month governorship election.
On May 1, 2018, Fayose announced the
promotion of 37,100 workers covering
promotion arrears in the civil service from 2015
As if to copy Fayose, Aregbesola is also said
to have given civil servants in the state double
promotion without examination and has
converted some from one cadre to another.
It was in May that the State Government said it
has lifted embargo on conversion,
advancement, promotion, confirmation and
career progression of the state civil servants.
The state Head of Civil Service, Festus
Oyebade, announced this in a circular in which
he also said that the state government has
agreed to pay full salary of December 2017 for
the workforce. This was after the state civil
servants had demanded for the full payment of
their salaries on the occasion of Workers’ Day
