The NLC Chairman, Ekiti State branch Mr. Jawebori Elenunla revealed the reason behind the strike embarked on by government workers in Ekiti State.
Mr. Jawebori spoke angrily and had to be calmed down by journalists at the press conference . He spoke in Yoruba – ” Se e mo wipe, alailojuti ni Gomina Ekiti yi, Ati gba ti tomato ti won ni ilu wa, ni Gomina wa to bere si fi ata ropo tomato ninu ounje wa. E mo wipe a ko nise mi mo ni Ipinle Ekiti ju ki a ma jeun lo. Gomina wa de ro ata si inu ounje fun gbogbo awon osiise, pupo ninu wa lo wa ni ile Iwosan Giga ni Ibadan lowo lowo bayii ti won gbawosan. Olorun ma fiyaje Gomina wa. Bi o se ro ata sinu ounje wa ni Olorun ma ro ata sinu aiye e”
” Can you believe that Gov. Fayose repaid our acts of kindness with wickedness. Ever since Tomato became scarce in Nigeria, the Governor has been using pepper to replace tomato. We all know that workers in Ekiti people do not have any work to do other than eating. It is unfortunate that the Governor put an overdose of pepper that sent most of our officials to the hospital. Some are admitted in UCH while others are at large. As he has put pepper in our food, so may the Lord put pepper in his life.
