On Monday, I will fire your 30 PS appointees. Oyetola to Adeleke
Ademola Adeleke, the incoming governor of the state, has vowed to fire the appointed civil servants on Monday in response to Osun State Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s appointment of 30 new permanent secretaries on Thursday.
On Thursday, Governor Oyetola approved and installed 30 senior civil servants as permanent secretaries. On Sunday, November 27, Adeleke is scheduled to take office as the State Governor.
In a swift response to the appointment, Adeleke threatened that any of the appointed civil servants who conceded to the appointment will be fired by Monday in a statement by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed.
The statement reads, “Any Coordinating Director who accept a permanent Secretary appointment from outgoing Governor Gboyega Oyetola will exit the service from November 28th, Osun State Governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke has warned.
“The Governor-elect affirmed that taking such appointments at this last minute indicated the readiness of those directors to exit the state service.
” We want to put on records that those who accept the appointments should be ready to leave the service whether or not their service tenure has reached statutory age. The occupants will be treated as political appointees who will automatically follow the outgoing Governor out of public service from November 28.
“At the same time, those who still want to remain in service of Osun state government should decline the Greek gift from the outgoing Governor. We affirm that no waiver will be entertained in sacking from office any kangaroo permanent secretary.”
