‘There is nothing to celebrate’ – Governor Fayose cancel OCT1st

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state on Thursday
cancelled all forms of fanfare as well as stadium
parades usually held on Independence Day
celebrations.
NAN reports that Fayose in a broadcast said there
was nothing to celebrate in view of the economic
situation in the country.
“I do not think it is proper to engage in jamboree
when it is almost becoming increasingly difficult to
pay workers salaries.
“The current situation demands sober reflection
from all and we cannot pretend about this,” Fayose
said. He ordered residents to stay at home and
enjoy the celebration in low-key.
NAN reports that as a result of the governor’s
order, the usual activities associated with the
celebration were absent in most parts of Ado-Ekiti
on Thursday.
However, there were few places where pockets of
activities were organised by individuals or corporate
bodies.
