The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties(CNPP), Ekiti state chapter has exonerated Governor Kayode Fayemi of blame over the sack of 2,000 workers employed under the Ayo Fayose-led government.

The political organisation said Fayose’s alleged circumvention of the law and the civil service rule  spurred the present government to purge the service of what it called “illegal workers”.

The CNPP appealed to the victims to resist being misguided by politicians to protest against government and cause public disorder in the state.

The government had at its last week’s state executive council meeting took a decision to sack over 2,000 workers employed after the July 14, 2018 governorship election.

Speaking with journalists in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday, the CNPP State Chairman, Deacon Olu Akomolafe said Governor Fayemi has been magnanimous enough by overlooking some infractions committed in the recruitment exercises and promised to retain those that were employed between 2014 and 2017 when Fayose was in the saddle.

Akomolafe said it was a gross abuse of office and insensitivity for Fayose to have employed people into service and still being paid manually three years after.

The CNPP boss stated that the present government was circumspect of the civil service rule, which stipulated how a legitimate worker can be sacked, saying the step confirmed  that those workers were not protected by the rule, being products of illegality.

Akomolafe added that the whole world, including those who didn’t believe in Fayemi’s political ideology were aware that Fayose deliberately did the last minute employment to create landmines for the incoming government.
