“The Governor-elect affirmed that taking such appointments at this last minute indicated the readiness of those directors to exit the state service.
We want to put on record that those who accept the appointments should be ready to leave the service whether or not their service tenure has reached statutory age. The occupants will be treated as political appointees who will automatically follow the outgoing Governor out of public service from November 28.
At the same time, those who still want to remain in service of the Osun government should decline the Greek gift from the outgoing Governor. We affirm that no waiver will be entertained in sacking from office any kangaroo permanent secretary”, he stated.
