The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s support for the Kaduna State Government’s planned sacking of about 22,000 teachers that failed competency test conducted by the government.

But he got a response worth a million dollars from governor Nasir El-Rufai.

The governor said by openly supporting the planned sacking of about 22,000 teachers in Kaduna State, the President had approved loss of jobs as the official policy of the All Progressives Congress instead of creating three million jobs per year that the party promised Nigerians.

In a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday and signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose reiterated his total commitment to the welfare of workers in Ekiti State.

“Not minding the state’s inability to pay salaries as and when due, owing to paucity of fund, I will not sack any worker under any guise,” he said.

The governor said it was sad that Buhari whose government promised to create jobs for Nigerians was supporting the move to throw 22,000 teachers into the labour market after causing loss of millions of jobs in the private sector and collapse of several companies.

According to him, the President’s position was a pointer that labour leaders in the country should prepare for mass sacking of workers by the APC governments both at the federal and state levels.

In a swift response, the Kaduna state governor said that the state government is only replacing incompetent teachers in order to protect the future of the people.
