PDP to sack over 4000 workers in Ekiti

Ayodele Fayose, Ekiti state governor elect

The Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has said its government would sack all the workers employed after the June 21 governorship election by the outgoing administration of Governor Kayode Fayemi.

Mr. Fayemi of the All Progressives Congress, APC, was defeated by the PDP candidate, Ayo Fayose, in the election.

The governor-elect will assume office in October.

In a statement by the PDP spokesperson in the state, Kola Oluwawole, the party said the outgoing administration acted callously and primitively by putting landmines on the way of its successor.

It said it was aware of the number of the workforce in Ekiti State before the governorship poll and vowed to resist the new recruitments made recently by the APC government.

“We know what the staff strength in the core civil service, the teaching service, the local government, the House of Assembly, the Broadcasting Service of Ekiti State and others was before the June 21 governorship election in which our party thoroughly trounced Fayemi and his APC,” the PDP said.

“We also know how the Fayemi administration has illegally recruited over 3,000 into the civil service, 1,000 into Ekiti State University, over 100 into BSES, and over 1,500 into the teaching service among others after they lost the election and how they are clever by half by backdating the letters of appointment.

“The question the good people of Ekiti State should ask Fayemi and his party is – why are they just waking up to engage in massive recruitment in the twilight of their tenure in office. Those given such letters of appointment should consider themselves to be on temporary appointment as having a victory that is short-lived.”

However, Olayinka Oyebode, the Chief Secretary to the governor said the outgoing administration did not undertake any fresh recruitment as claimed by the PDP.

He said the employment process had been completed since February and that those employed assumed duties long before the election.

Mr. Oyebode said the process was not only meticulously done, but also followed due process.

“We don’t know how they came about that. They have been going about saying a lot of things. They do not understand the concept of governance,” he said.

    Mr. Fayose is about to step on a booby trap! He should go ahead and sack the 4,000 staffers. He will then need to explain the following:

    1. Are those hired not eligible for jobs in Ekiti?

    2. Is Government not a continuum?

    3. Do two wrongs make a right?

    Good luck, Mr Fayose

      The people that claim to vote for fayose will cry last because they don’t know who they vote for.

      How are you sure his intentions are not to purge perceived APC sympathisers and replace them with PDP sympathisers ? They are saying people are being employed after election and Fayemi aid is saying the last employment was in February , who is speaking the truth here. This should be a job for an investigative journalist to set the record straight , is it a preemptive purge and replacement with cronies or is it a landmine and booby trap as you alluded to . Who is telling the truth , truth master ? Sometimes we need to take everything we being fed with a pinch of salt, somewhere somehow the truth lies in the middle somewhere .


        I agree with you on the need to know the truth. But one fact remains, based on what we have been told by both sides: People have been employed after the election!

        My comment, therefore, was on the basis of that.

  • Idealist

    Ekiti people, you guys voted for Fayose under PDP,you guys should start dancing to his song now, am pretty sure the bag of rice and ororo don finish, thumps up Mr fayose!!!

    • change 2014-2015

      They will surely suffer for what they have done in ekiti.

  • BlackieUmukoro

    How can you say that Fayose who has been a governor before, does not know the concept of governance. This APC make me laugh

    • change 2014-2015

      Fayose does not know governance is it not the same fayose that was impeached when hour was a governor then. It has now shown clearly this pdp they don’t have human feelings they rigged the election just in the name of sharing money.

        Stop commenting on my post, they don’t add value or make sense. They are simply burukutu post as you cannot afford a beer parlour Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

          Who are you to say he should not comment on your post? He has every right to do so all you have to do is to give a counter argument , or agree to disagree with his opinion . Why do we always resort to crude rules of engagement , either by abusing the other person or denigrating the debate into a religious or ethnic bashing. I am not saying you doing that now but in general we need to play the ball and not the man then we can be able to talk to each other in a civilized manner which will augur well for the forum and also make the politicians following our blog see how to debate in a rational manner . This will make us mature but shouting and abuse debase the argument and nothing is achieved no wonder we are in this mess.

          • BlackieUmukoro

            His comments are devoid of all civility and always out of point, and that makes it vexatious. To save me that stress, is the reason why, I said he should avoid my post. It is nothing personal, it is all about freedom of whom to associate with. Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

    So the Ekiti people who are employed deserved less? They just elected a governor for PDP, not the Ekiti people. Shameful.

    Ekiti elected PDP because of rice and chicken, just few months after the election PDP want to start pay back. Hope this will be a lesson to other states ! PDP is an inhuman and criminal organization.
