Revocation of 2000 Workers In Ekiti ‘Height Of Wickedness And Political Vendetta’- Fayose

The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has condemned the attack on former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu by suspected members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has described the revocation by Gov. Kayode Fayemi, of appointment of 2,000 workers by him shortly before leaving office, as “height of wickedness and political vendetta” urged affected civil servants not to be disillusioned, but to approach the court to challenge the State Government’s decision.

In a statement by his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, on Thursday in Ado Ekiti, the former governor said that sacking people duly engaged in the service by a duly constituted government was most unfortunate.

Africa News24 (AN24) reports that the state government on Thursday announced the cancellation of 2000 appointments carried out by the Fayose-led administration in October 2018.

The government declared that their recruitment did not follow due process and was politically lopsided to give undue advantage to the cronies of the former governor.

Fayose, however, said that the incumbent governor, by the action, had succeeded in writing his name in the history books of Ekiti as one who inflicted sorrow on the people.

“He has demonstrated this by sacking Ekiti people who were duly employed by the state government.

“Whoever that applauds this show of wickedness will be reminded in future when actions of Fayemi will also be reviewed.

“As for those who have now become victims of this act of wickedness and political vendetta, they should enforce their rights to seek redress in the court of law,” he said.
