Dispute between Adeleke and Oyetola over sacked workers and Executive Orders
Yesterday, Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State and his predecessor, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola had serious misunderstandings over the number of workers employed in the previous administration.
Issuance of Executive Orders and sacking of monarchs were another topic of dispute between the two leaders.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, accused Oyetola of employing over 12, 000 workers before leaving office.
Ismail Omipidan, spokesperson to the former governor, challenged the Adeleke administration to substantiate his claims with the list of the 12,000 workers, he futher went on to dismiss the claims as unfounded.
It was gathered that the Oyetola administration employed 2,400 teachers in primary and post-primary schools across the state, while some contract staff were regularised across ministries and parastatals, apart from the Osun Youth Empowerment (Volunteer) Scheme.
But Governor Adeleke’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, who featured on a Rave FM talk show, yesterday, said the administration has not sacked any workers nor dethroned three monarchs in the state.
