Written by Morenike Adebayo on September 6, 2016
Ekiti State Government will within the next few days refund money over-deducted from the salaries of workers for car, housing and computer loans. This followed the submission of the report by a committee set up by the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, which looked into the matter.
Speaking on an interview programme on radio and television in Ado-Ekiti, Governor Fayose also promised that the legacy projects embarked upon by his administration will be completed as scheduled. He used the occasion to announce that the twentieth anniversary of the state creation coming up on the first of October, 2016 will be low-keyed due to the economic realities of the day.
In a statement issued today by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor said teachers, whose salaries were over-deducted fell into those under the Teaching Service Commission and the State Universal Basic Education Board.
While giving the assurance that the money would be refunded shortly, the governor said steps have been taken to prevent a recurrence of such thing in the future.

Ekiti State Government has hinted that it may stop the central payment of state and local government workers’ salaries, saying local governments will be encouraged to pay their workers. Governor Ayodele Fayose spoke in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, during a meeting with directors of finance and accounts, directors of administration, chief internal auditors and others from across ministries, departments and agencies in the state.
Fayose, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, in Ado Ekiti on Sunday, also warned public servants against signing documents without thoroughly going through them. The meeting was convened to find solutions to the problems associated with generating wholesome nominal and pay rolls by MDAs in the state, the statement added.
