Government workers in Ekiti State who embark
on strike without first exhausting channels of
negotiation would henceforth forfeit their
salaries during such industrial action, Governor
Ayo Fayose has warned.

Fayose gave the warning yesterday evening in
Ado Ekiti, the state capital while appearing on
his monthly media chat, ‘Meet Your Governor’.

He also denied awarding contracts for the
construction of Erekesan Market, Airport and
flyover to his children, family members and

The governor’s latest hard-liner was coming on
the heels of a two-day warning strike by primary
school teachers in the state last week to protest
non-payment of September 2014 salaries and

“There is nowhere in the world where the entire
budgetary provision will be centre around
recurrent expenditure”, Gov. Fayose.

On his recent visit to Governor Rauf Aregbesola
of Osun State, Fayose said: “Governor
Aregbesola is my very good friend. It is only in
Nigeria where two friends in different political
parties won’t be free to greet each other.
“My visit to governor Aregbesola is in Yoruba’s
