Fayose annuls 400 appointments at state varsity



Fayose annuls 400 appointments at state varsity

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State on Tuesday cancelled the recent employment of 400 persons by Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado Ekiti.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi said in a statement in Ado Ekiti, that the action 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 kins.

He emphasised the need to make appointments into every area of government employment free, fair and transparent.
