Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose has come out to deny allegations that he cut down the budget of the state assembly.
In a statement released by his chief press secretary, Idowu Adelusi, governor fayose accused members of the APC of peddling such rumours since they were bent on slowing down the development of the state.
He stated that it was the responsibility of the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission to determine the salaries and allowances of the state assembly.
“As long as there is no review of the salaries and other emolument of the legislators by the federal government, I cannot violate the laid down rule; so those who are going about with such rumour are ignorant of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria or they deliberately want to be mischievous,”
He further stated that those spreading the rumour were being naive by saying that he decided to pay those whose election were being challenged in the tribunal
