“In Ekiti, we are owing salary and we are making efforts to pay.”

But he came under heavy criticisms from Twitter users who described him as hypocrite.
“Hypocrisy is when you are failing in payment of workers salaries but instead spending millions to purchase aso odun for small children.” A user writes
