The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, yesterday, apologised to primary school teachers in the state over the mix-up in the payment of their September salary.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Idowu Adelusi, said: “Even though the mix-up was from the State Accountant General’s office but as the state governor, he takes responsibility.
“I want to apologise for the inconsistency and problems encountered in crediting the accounts of some primary school teachers, it was after my broadcast few days back that I got a lot of text messages from some teachers that were affected,” the governor said.
“I sincerely want to apologise, I have gotten to the root of the matter, I have found out that there were mix-ups here and there, the accounts were credited and later withdrawn for carelessness in the accountant general’s office, for whatever it is I take responsibility, I apologise and want to assure you all the lapses will be corrected.
“My teachers at the primary school level, this money will be credited to your accounts between now and Wednesday unfailingly. My apologies.”
