download (10)Labour unions in tertiary institutions in Ekiti State have accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of compounding their problems by imposing “satanic and oppressive” taxes on them without paying their salary arrears. The workers also accused the governor of subjecting them to dehumanisation, abject poverty and immeasurable hardship by refusing to pay subventions to the institution.


They stated this in a communique issued after their meeting held under the Joint Association of Staff Unions in the Tertiary Institutions in Ekiti State.





Addressing journalists after the meeting, the chairman of EKSU branch of ASUU, Prof. Olu-Olu Olufayo, said the institution last received subvention in January,expressing their readiness to negotiate with the government, and urged the state government to review the taxes downwards.
