Adeleke denies sacking 12,000 workers, 3 monarchs


Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has denied sacking 12,000 workers and dethroning three monarchs in the state.

The governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, made this clarification on Rave FM in Osogbo during a talk show programme, “Frank Talk”.

He explained that no worker was sacked, rather, the state government set up a panel to review their employment.

Rasheed said: “There was never sack of any worker or traditional ruler. We only set up a review panel. It is impossible to sack and put a review panel in place.

“The review panel is to look at the numbers of the people that were employed, due processes of the employment, and qualification among other things.

“Before our taking over, there were issues of backdating of employment, even till last year. So order 1-5 will be operationalized by order 6 which are the panels.
