Just recently in Ekiti state, Governor Ayodele Fayose was reported to have gifted out some pairs of shoes to female teachers and civil servants during a meeting.
NAIJ.com gathered that the meeting was held in honor of not being able to fully pay staff salaries in the state due to the N1.2 billion deducted from the state’s allowance.
This information was made available by Bola Agboola via his Facebook profile. He also posted the picture from the event with the caption:
"Re: God bless Gov Fayose! Ekiti Teachers need no salary but Tokunbo Shoe! Let me enlighten our people a bit and diffuse Bro Wale Ojo Lanre's misconception about the shoes Fayose dashed out during a meeting with some Ekiti workers. The governor had invited some local government workers and primary school teachers to a meeting at the government house on Thursday, 8th June, 2017. I titled the story 'Fayose meets with Ekiti workers, re-assures commitment to their welfare', you can have the details via my Facebook link. During the meeting, the governor explained extensively the reasons for difficulty in salary payment, part of which was the #1.2b that is being deducted on monthly basis sake of the debt incurred by the Fayemi administration, the deductions will continue till 2035 or so.

It was time for the workers to react, so governor Fayose called upon 5 teachers and 5 LG workers to react and make suggestions, so as one of the teachers were coming out, her shoe got spoilt, so she was limping. The governor saw that and asked one of his aides to go to his apartment and bring the female foot-wears there. Within a twinkle of an eye, the foot-wears were at venue of the meeting, they were two designer foot-wears, the governor checked if it was the woman’s size but it wasn't, so Fayose decided to give her N20,000 to get a footwear of her choice. People clapped in appreciation.
After the meeting, the governor felt he should not go home with the foot-wears, so he selected some young women to see if the foot-wears will be of their size, two women were lucky as it was there size, they went home with it. That was what happened. Against my brother's perception of what transpired during the meeting, all these happened in a relaxed atmosphere, the workers were relating one on one with the governor, cracking jokes and feeling cool. Thanks for your time."
