Fayose Refunds Deducted Funds From Ekiti Teachers’ Salaries
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, Thursday, ordered the Accountant-General of the state to immediately refund monies over-deducted from the salaries of teachers, who had bought some facilities from government during the administration of his predecessor, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
A few years ago, teachers had bought cars and laptops among other facilities from government on loan with an arrangement for monthly instalment deductions from their salaries.
According the Ekiti State chairman of the Nigerian Union of Teachers (NUT) , Comrade Samuel Akosile, the over-deductions from the teachers’ salaries have been a perennial problem but when brought to the notice of Governor Fayose, he promptly set up a committee to look into the complaints and gave them an ultimatum of 30 days to bring their report.
The report and its recommendations were submitted to the governor, Thursday, at Osuntokun hall of the government office, Ado-Ekiti, state capital.
