Fayose Sacks 400 EKSU Staff
The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has cancelled the recent employment of 400 persons by Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado Ekiti.
In a statement released on Tuesday and signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, the action of Gov. Fayose, who is also the Visitor to the university, was consequent upon irregularities that characterised the exercise.
Adelusi said the university failed to advertise the vacant positions, thereby disallowing competition.
“The awkward manner the recruitment was carried out did not enable qualified persons who are jobless to freely seek employment.”
He accused some members of management of deliberately shutting out jobless persons who had nobody to lobby for them, in preference for their own kits and kin.
He emphasised the need to make appointments into every area of government employment free, fair and transparent.
