Governor Ayo Fayose displayed a poster bearing the inscription: ‘Fayose The Real Change’ in Ekiti state.
According to NAN, Fayose made this known when he displayed a poster bearing the inscription: ‘Fayose The Real Change’ on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, at an event to celebrate the World Teachers Day in Ado-Ekiti.
The "Change" mantra was introduced by the All Progressives Party (APC) during the campaign period for the the 2015 general elections.
Fayose donated N50 million to the teachers, saying the gift was in recognition of the sound performance of the state in the just released NECO results.
He ordered that the money is shared equally among all the teachers irrespective of grade and status, and directed the state accountant-general to ensure that each of the beneficiaries received his or her own share on or before Friday, October 7, 2016.
Fayose said the gesture was aimed at spurring the teachers on to greater achievements in the years ahead.
“I am doing all of these because Ekiti’s name has been brought under world focus once again, and it is my wish that our current academic feat be repeated over and over again, after all to whom much is given, much is expected,” Fayose said.
Kayode Akosile, chairman of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), advised the government to pay adequate attention to the welfare of teachers as an incentive for greater feats.
Meanwhile, the ruling APC has described Governor Fayose as a threat to Nigeria and democracy.
