Fayose’s employment of 2000 workers a scam — Adeyeye

Prince Dayo Adeyeye, former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], on Sunday, said the decision by Governor Ayodele Fayose to employ 2000 applicants before the end of his tenure in Ekiti State is a scam.

Adeyeye, in a statement, said the governor’s antics to win votes for the PDP candidate and incumbent deputy governor, Prof. Kolapo Olusola, was a sign of jittery.

The former minister of state for Works, queried why the governor was just waking to the facts that hundreds of youths in the state need jobs.

“Few weeks after his inauguration as the state governor, he instructed the unemployed youths in the state to submit their curriculum vitae for jobs that he promised to create for them.

“Over ten thousand youths in the state paid the sum of one thousand naira each, to collect the forms for the jobs, but unfortunately, up till now, he has not employed one single youth in the state,” he said.

Adeyeye assured Ekiti youths that nothing would come out of the exercise, adding that Fayose is only using same as political gimmick to trick the people of the state into voting for his ordained candidate.

“I wonder how a state governor, who has not paid the state workers for over seven months, owing pensioners months of gratuity and local government workers as well, is going to fund the employment of two thousand fresh employees.

“Here is somebody, who sacked all that were employed by the Dr Kayode Fayemi administration that now wants to employ 2000 workers.

“Workers and the youths should know that he is only deceiving them and does not have their interest at heart. The people cannot be deceived because an average Ekiti worker is more educated and enlightened than he is,” he said.
