The Osun State governor-elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has promised to sack the 30 permanent secretaries appointed on Thursday by the Osun state governor, Gboyega Oyetola, by Monday.
Governor Oyetola on Thursday, appointed 30 senior civil servants as permanent secretaries, barely three days to Adeleke’s inauguration as governor.
A statement by Adeleke’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, Friday, said that the appointed civil servants would be sacked by Monday.
“Any coordinating director who accepts 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,” he said.
