Ogun State New Nigeria People’s Party gubernatorial candidate,Hon Ezekiel Fayoyin have condemned the lackadaisical attitude of the Prince Dapo Abdiodun’s administration towards the payment of pension and gratuity of retirees in the state.
Hon Fayoyin made this known today on a telephone conversation with our reporter after the association of pensioners promised to shut down the state if their demands are not met within 14 days.
He said the governor was not just insensitive to their plight, he was wicked in his approach to pay their backlog of gratuities. Hon Fayoyin explained that,”this Dapo Abiodun administration is unfortunate for the people of this state. His inept attitude in governance and lackadaisical approach towards the elderly is sickening. How will he pay N2 Billion out of N68 Billion of backlog of gratuities and other entitlements while he kept spending unnecessarily on other political activities in the state?It shows the level of heartlessness to senior citizens. Ironically,he wants to be celebrated and return for second term as governor,isn’t that crazy?”
Hon Fayoyin called on the good people of the state to use their political power of the ballot, to show him the way out. He said,”it is very simple and obvious, the administration have done badly and they should give way to more focus and people oriented Party to lead the affairs of the state. NNPP shall take the mantle of leadership, come 2023 general election.”
He added that the people should be involved in the political process, and be assured that the only way to change the narrative is to show Dapo Abiodun the way out of office, and vote for NNPP in the general election.
