Osun State Governor-elect, Ademola Adeleke has reacted to the out-going Governor Adegboyega Oyetola’s recent appointment of 30 permanent secretaries (PS)into the State Civil Service 48 hours to the end of his tenure.
Daily Trust reports that the top government officials have occupied the positions of Coordinating Directors of their various ministries awaiting their appointment into the position of PS.
The Head of Service, Dr. Festus Olowogboyega Oyebade, in a memo announced the appointment of the new Permanent Secretary on behalf of the state government, the paper said.
However, Adeleke threatened to sack the appointees when he takes over two days from now.
Adeleke, who spoke through his media aide, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, warned the officials that they would be fired.
Adeleke said, “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.”
