Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti, on Friday, said that no the genuine staff of the state public service was sacked by his government.

Mr Fayemi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Olayinka Oyebode, explained that he was only correcting the fundamental error of his predecessor, Ayo Fayose.

“Fayemi never sacked anyone. You cannot sack people who are not duly employed in the first place.

“The so-called “recruitments” carried out were obviously mischievous because it neither followed due process nor was it ever completed

“For instance, the affected persons were not duly captured in the Civil Service Structure

“Apart from a letter of “employment purportedly to given them, they do not exist in the state civil device nominal payroll

“Besides, they were never captured in the state’s Biometric Payment System and never received any salary since the purported “appointments” since October 201

“You can imagine 2,000 applicants who did not know the offices or jobs they were being employed for. An application form that did not indicate the position each applicant was vying for.

“So, this means they were arbitrarily assigned to jobs after an unprofessional “interview” process.

“How logical is it for a government that was owing 9 months salary/pension to add to the wage bill?

“The Local Government Service Commission and others saw through the scam and refused to issue phoney letters to purported “employees”

“Public notices and announcements of warning were issued to the public by the incoming administration then, that a government that had less than 45 days to leave office should not engage in a theatre of the absurd, but the affected job seekers ignored the caveat.

“The said application fee of N1,000 paid by each of then were paid to fraudsters and not into the government account.

“A genuine government recruitment application fee will be paid into TSA, and not private accounts

“A proper recruitment process will begin as soon as the Head of Service ascertains the available vacancies in the Public Service, in line with the directive of the governor
