The Deputy Governor-Elect of Ekiti, Bisi Egbeyemi, says Governor Ayo Fayose planned to use last-minute recruitment drive to win the July 14 governorship election for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) but failed.
He described the employment forms released by the Fayose administration before the governorship poll in the state as fraudulent, warning prospective jobs seekers to be wary.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ado-Ekiti on Monday, Egbeyemi also assured that the governor-elect, Dr Kayode Fayemi, would implement its blueprint for all sectors.
According to him, the salaries owed to workers by Fayose would be a top priority of the incoming administration.
The tenure of the current administration would end on October 16.
Egbeyemi described the purported recruitment as a scam to deceive the electorate during the poll.
“How can a governor who had few weeks left instruct unemployed youths in the state to submit their curriculum vitae for jobs that he promised to create for them?
“Over 10,000 youths in the state collected the forms for the jobs, but unfortunately, up till now, he has not employed one single youth in the state.
“Here is somebody who sacked all those who were employed by the Fayemi-led administration and now wants to employ 2,000 workers.
“Workers and the youths should know that he is only deceiving them, but he has forgotten that the people and an average Ekiti worker is more educated and enlightened than he is,” he said.
Egbeyemi, a former Chairman of Ado-Ekiti Local Government Area, promised that the incoming government would employ those sacked by the present government when it assumed office.
