Ekiti State Governor-Elect, Fayemi Terms As Trap For His Administration, Governor Fayose’s Mass Recuitment.
In his words, “the last-minute employment of workers” was a booby trap to make life difficult for the incoming administration.
Fayose is expected to make way for Fayemi on October 16 when the governor-elect will be sworn in.
A statement on Today by the Director of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wole Olujobi, claimed that Fayose had just employed 600 teachers into the Teaching Service Commission, 400 staff into the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and 1,000 into the Ministry of Establishment.
The governor-elect described the decision as a last minute mass recruitment to deceive the unsuspecting victims and set a booby-trap for the incoming administration.
Noting that Fayose was deliberately creating obstacles for the new administration having not employed one person in nearly four years, the statement wondered why the governor embarked on mass recruitment in the last few days to the end of his term.
According to him, Fayose was playing on the intelligence of the people to paint a picture of a man of the masses in clear infraction on the law.
He said: “It is a grand deception and sheer wickedness for a governor that has refused to pay workers and pensioners for between six and 10 months to now turn around to recruit about 2,000 workers in a selective manner to favour his supporters only.”
Olujobi described Fayose’s recruitment as an act of desperation by a governor who never cared for the people but would always take advantage of them in a most dehumanising manner.
“Once again, we call on Ekiti people as we did in our recent press release to be wary of Fayose’s last minute illegal deals, transactions and mass recruitment which do not follow due process.
“Any transaction so done shall be reviewed by the incoming administration.”
