October Hand Over Date: Fayemi Sacks Aides
July 18
03:28 2022

Preparatory to his handing over to successor on October 16, Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has terminated the appointment of his Political Aides.

This was contained in a memo signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Foluso Daramola and made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti over the weekend.

It explained that Governor Fayemi approved the termination of their appointments with effect from 31st July 2022.

Already, the Governor has set up a transition Committee to midwife the incoming administration and as well as give outgoing one a soft landing.

According to the memo, “His Excellency, Dr John Kayode Fayemi, has approved that the services of all Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, Technical Assistants and Executives Assistants would end on 31st July 2022.

“This is to enable the State Government process all outstanding allowances of the affected officials more so that the Government is winding up.

“The action, which was in consonant with state’s transition law, was also to ensure payments of entitlements of political office holders and their terminal benefits.”

It further stated that the action would pave the way for the state government to process all outstanding allowances to the affected officials, for a smooth transition from the incumbent administration to the new government.

The memo reads in part: “A Transition Committee was constituted to among others, evolve strategies for a smooth transition from the incumbent to the incoming government.

“One of the duties of the Committee, in line with Ekiti State Transition Law, is to ensure the payment of entitlements of political office holders including their terminal benefits.”

The decision is, however, generating mixed reactions as some claim that paying entitlements of political office holders that are just leaving office, while benefits of those that retired since five years ago are still hanging, is illegal.
