Ekiti Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has directed that salaries of all political appointees be slashed by 50 per cent with immediate effect
This he said was part of his administration’s commitment at ensuring improved welfare for the people of the state.
The governor, however, assured that salaries of civil servants will not be tampered with.
In a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Values Orientation, Aare Muyiwa Olumilua, the governor disclosed that the directive was the sacrifice of his government’s commitment at prioritising the welfare of the people, hence, the emergence of the difficult decision.
“ Consequent upon the ravaging effects of the COVID-19 scourge, the global economy has been severely affected, with the depression affecting Nigeria as a nation, and expectedly, our dear Ekiti State.
