Ekiti state government sacks 400 university staff

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has revoked the employment of over 400 staff of the state university.

He said the recent recruitment did not follow due process.

The Governor, who made this disclosure on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti, said he was shocked that over 400 persons would be offered employment without the positions being advertised.

He spoke during an interactive session with the participants in the N-Power Programme of the Federal Government from the state at the Government House, Ado Ekiti.

Fayose at the event promised a reward of N1m and full employment for the best participant in the N-Power Programme.

“This is only a palliative as it will last for only two years and I am strongly appealing to the Federal Government to take th‎e issue of job creation serious. When somebody partakes in this programme and is sent back to the labour market after two years, that is going back to where he or she started, the labour market.

“As for us, we will do our duty to distribute participants to where they would work and monitor them as well as ensuring that we do a proper data capturing of the participants.

“For those in the agriculture arm of the programme, they can take advantage of our desire to adequately support rice and cocoa cultivation.

“We will support in the provision of inputs and clearing of land. Next year, we are committing about N250 million to clear farmlands across the state.

“From the participants, we can get serious ones who could be useful in the teaching service and other areas,” he said.
