Sack of 2,000 workers in Ekiti is height of wickednes, political vendetta – Fayose
Former Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, has described the revocation by Gov. Kayode Fayemi, of appointment of 2,000 workers by him shortly before leaving office, as “height of wickedness and political vendetta.”
Fayose called on all the affected civil servants not to be disillusioned, but to approach the court to challenge the State Government’s decision.
In a statement by his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, on Thursday in Ado Ekiti, the former governor said that sacking people duly engaged in the service by a duly constituted government was most unfortunate.
Fayose, said that the incumbent governor, by the action, had succeeded in writing his name in the history books of Ekiti as one who inflicted sorrow on the people.
“He has demonstrated this by sacking Ekiti people who were duly employed by the state government.
“Whoever that applauds this show of wickedness will be reminded in future when actions of Fayemi will also be reviewed.
“As for those who have now become victims of this act of wickedness and political vendetta, they should enforce their rights to seek redress in the court of law,” he said.
