Adeleke Denies Sacking 12,000 Workers, 3 Monarchs
Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun state has denied sacking 12,000 workers and dethroning three monarchs in the monarchs.
Speaking on Rave FM in Osogbo during a talk show programme, “Frank Talk,” the spokesperson of the governor, Olawale Rasheed, said Adeleke has neither sacked 12,000 workers nor dethroned any monarch.
According to Rasheed, the appointments and employment by the administration of Oyetola will be reviewed to ensure due process.
According to him: “There was never sack of any worker or traditional ruler. We only set up a review panel. It is impossible to sack and put a review panel in place.
“The review panel is to look at the numbers of the people that were employed, due processes of the employment, and qualification among other things.
‘’Before our taking over, there were issues of backdating of employment, even till last year. So order 1-5 will be operationalized by order 6 which are the panels.
“Those that were employed from July 17 till our takeover are still at work presently, they have not been sacked. The staff audit will review the employment. Within 4 hours, Adeleke has dismantled the illegality of 4 months, all the bobby traps he has dismantled them.“
Recall that Adeleke signed Executive Orders 3, 4, and 5, nullifying all employment and appointments by his predecessor Gboyega Oyetola from July 17 till his inauguration on Monday.
He issued another Executive Order dethroning three of the monarchs installed by Oyetola.
He explained that executive order one to five shows the intentions of the administration to review, nullify, and set aside, and the instrumentality to effect the orders was order six which is the composition of the panel.
