Rasheed states that the hiring decisions made by the Oyetola administration will be examined to ensure due process.
He claims that no worker or traditional leader was ever fired. We merely established a review panel. It is impossible to fire someone and install a review panel.
“Among other things, the review panel will consider the qualifications, the number of people who were employed, and the employment’s legal requirements”.
Prior to us taking over, there were problems with employment that went back as far as last year. Order 6, which consists of the panels, will thus operationalize orders 1 through 5.
“Those still working today who were employed from July 17 until our takeover; they have not been fired. The employment will be examined by the staff audit.
Adeleke dismantled all the bobby traps in 4 hours, ending the illegality that had been going on for 4 months.
Recall that from July 17 until the day of his inauguration on Monday, all employment and appointments made by Adeleke’s predecessor Gboyega Oyetola were void.
In a subsequent Executive Order, he removed three of the monarchs that Oyetola had installed.
According to him, executive orders one through five indicate the administration’s intentions to review, invalidate, and set aside them, and order six, which establishes the makeup of the panel, serves as the instrument by which the orders are put into effect.
The order states: “After July 17, 2022, all employments made in the Osun State Government’s service in any capacity into any capacity in all Ministries, Departments, Agencies, Commissions, Boards, and Parastatals shall be and hereby are void.
“After July 17, 2022, all appointments made by the Osun State Government in any capacity into any positions at all Ministries, Departments, Agencies, Commissions, Boards, and Parastatals shall be and hereby are reversed.
The fifth Executive Order on Chieftaincy Affairs and the Appointment of Traditional Leaders.
The Osun State Government is hereby ordered to review all appointments of traditional rulers made after July 17, 2022, to ensure that all chieftaincy declarations, native law, custom, and tradition pertaining to such chieftaincies were strictly followed.
“In the case of Ikirun, Iree, and Igbajo, the appointments of Akinrun of Ikinrun, Aree of Ire, and Owa of Igbajo are hereby suspended pending review to prevent further breakdown of law and order.
Security agencies are hereby instructed to assume control, and the palaces of Akinrun of Ikirun, Aree of Iree, and Owa of Igbajo should be left empty.
