FAYEMI ORDERS 50% REDUCTION OF SALARIES FOR POLITICAL OFFICERS

Ekiti state Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has directed the 50% slash in salaries of all political officers in the state.


This decision was made known by the state’s commissioner for information, Muyiwa Olumilua, in Ado Ekiti, today.


According to Olumilua, Fayemi said savings from the pay cut would be used to execute and complete developmental projects in the state.


 “The pay cut is consequent upon the global economy which the ravaging effects of COVID-19 scourge had severely affected with the depression affecting Nigeria as a nation and as well Ekiti State.


“It will affect the governor, the deputy governor and all political appointees down the line. Salaries of civil servants will not be affected by this directive, and shall maintain status quo.

 “This sacrifice is for the welfare of the Ekiti people, which should take pre-eminence over and above all other considerations.


“As a responsive and responsible government, the Fayemi-led administration has taken stock of our financial situation, vis-a-vis our constantly decreasing receipts from the Federation Account, as well as our dwindling internally generated revenue and has been forced to wake up to the current realities of our fiscal position.


“With promises made to the Ekiti people while seeking their mandate, coupled with the moral duty of improving their welfare, a time for making difficult decisions is at hand, and make them we must.


“Your patriotism, patience, and co-operation, is highly appreciated at all times”, Olumilua said.
