Politics Ekiti PDP Apologises to Workers on Fayose’s Misconduct


Social Member
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has apologized to government workers over the non-payment of their five months salaries by Governor Ayodele Fayose.


The apology follows the resolutions reached at the State Executive Committee meeting presided over by the Chairman, Chief Williams Sunday Ajayi in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.

The Ajayi-led state PDP executive was declared as the authentic and legally recognized committee by the ruling of a Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti in a suit marked FHC/AD/CS/21/2016 in a ruling delivered by Justice Taiwo Taiwo on May 15.

The court verdict ordered the executives of the faction loyal to Fayose led by Gboyega Oguntuase to stop parading themselves as such and also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to recognize the governor’s faction.

In a communique issued at the end of the meeting, a copy of which was made available to reporters on Wednesday, the party sympathized with the workers who are presently on strike to press for the payment of their salaries.

The communique conveying the resolutions reached at the meeting was signed by the Publicity Secretary, Dayo Owolabi.

“The party sympathizes with civil servants in the state and we apologize on behalf of the PDP for the misconduct of Mr. Governor and the party promises to advise him to toe the line of reasoning in the circumstance.

“The party resolves to bring dividends of democracy to the doorsteps of an average Ekiti person.

“The party resolves to work tirelessly towards reconciling the aggrieved members and bring back those who had abandoned the party.

“The purported meetings and/or congress held by Mr. Gboyega Oguntuase and his cronies are in contempt of the subsisting order of the honourable court.

“Any threat or act of intimidation by Mr. Governor or anyone acting for and on his behalf shall be reported to the appropriate security agencies for prompt action.

“The PDP under Chief Williams Ajayi welcomes all and sundry into its fold without fear, favour or Ill-will.”
