- Promises to repay Fayemi with votes for APC candidates•
Local government workers in Ekiti East Local Government of Ekiti State have adopted All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates ahead of Saturday’s general elections.
They promised to vote massively for the Ekiti South senatorial candidate, Prince Dayo Adeyeye; candidate for Ekiti South Federal Constituency 2, Mr. Femi Bamisile and House of Assembly candidates, Mr. Juwa Adegbuyi (Ekiti East 1) and Mr. Lateef Akanle (Ekiti East 2).
Acting under the aegis of the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), they promised to repay the candidates with votes on the strength of the good works of Governor Kayode Fayemi.
The council workers said Fayemi administration has made life easier for them through prompt and regular payment of salaries.
At the interactive session attended by the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, the NULGE members also pledged to cast their votes for President Muhammadu Buhari at the Saturday’s presidential poll.
Prince Adeyeye advised the LG workers to vote for all the candidates for them to enjoy a better welfare under the APC administration.
Adeyeye and Bamisile promised the people of their senatorial district and federal constituency quality representation if elected on Saturday.
Egbeyemi described all the APC candidates as experienced, tested and trusted in the previous offices they had occupied.
The deputy governor explained that Fayemi has made a difference in governance in the last four months hence the candidates of his party deserved to be elected at the general elections.
Egbeyemi advised the LG workers and the people of Ekiti South against voting for candidates of a party that inflicted hunger on them by owing arrears of salaries in recent past.
He slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for owing council workers over ten months arrears of salaries at a time despite receiving statutory allocations from the Federation Account.
The deputy governor said Adeyeye and Bamisile will work in tandem with Fayemi to deliver the goods to the people when they are elected.
Egbeyemi urged NULGE members to mobilise their wives, children, relations and neighbours to vote for APC candidates on February 23 and March 9 for Ekiti to align with the Federal Government in delivering dividends of democracy.
Some of the demands tabled by the council workers include implementation of their promotion, car and housing loans among others.
