Fayemi approves conversion, inter-cadre transfer for 603 workers
Ekiti APC re-affirms sack of Ojudu, 10 others
Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has approved the conversion and inter-cadre transfer of 603 officers in the state civil service.
The conversion and inter-cadre transfer were granted for the workers who obtained approved study leave to undertake courses of study in higher institutions.
Head of Service, Mrs. Peju Babafemi, who disclosed this in her office in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, said the governor’s approval for the conversion/advancement was a reflection of his commitment to the welfare of workers and their capacity building.
The governor said the approval was in line with the administration’s commitment to excellent service delivery through a highly motivated workforce, adding that the civil service remains a strategic partner in the quest for all-round development of the state.
He, therefore, urged the beneficiaries not to relent in their quest for personal and professional development.
MEANWHILE, the Ekiti State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the suspension of Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, and 10 others still subsists and in effect despite the pronouncement of the party’s national body.
The APC state’s Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, who spoke with journalists via a telephone conversation in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, said the suspension of Ojudu and others subsisted, adding that the El-Rufai reconciliation committee and the disciplinary committee set up at the state level, which recommended the suspension of Ojudu and others, were saddled with distinct responsibilities with no overlapping effect.
“Let me clarify here that it was only the suspension the illegal body imposed on Governor Kayode Fayemi that was nullified and not the one that was carried out by the disciplinary committee.
Ajayi, therefore, appealed to Ojudu and his group to co-operate with the reconciliation committee for unity to be restored.
“Let them come home and ventilate their anger. Let them use the party’s reconciliation mechanisms to settle this so that we can remain united as we have ever been.”
