The Governor while presenting the N67billion proposed Ekiti State 2016 Budget to the State House of Assembly in Ado-Ekiti, restated that he is not part of any plan by the Nigeria’s Governors Forum to reduce Minimum Wage and retrenchment workers.

“Let me state clearly again that I am not part of any plan by the Governors Forum to reduce Minimum Wage and retrenchment workers.”

Fayose however assured the people of the N67 billion proposed Budget will be a reality because it only contains what his government can do.

He stressed that a copy of the 2016 Budget will be sent to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) for monitoring.
