Adeleke Condemns The Eleventh- Hour Recruitment Of Teachers By Oyetola

The transition committee established by Senator Ademola Adeleke, the incoming governor of Osun State, yesterday characterized the eleventh- hour recruitment undertaken by the governor-elect Adegboyega Oyetola administration as an intentional plot to increase payroll and financially devastate the new administration.

The state government had stated on Monday that Oyetola had authorized the recruitment of 1,500 new teachers. This came after hiring 1,000 teachers at the beginning of the year.

Funke Egbemode, the state’s commissioner for Civic Orientation, stated in a statement that the new approval will further reduce the teacher-to-pupil ratio, “the new approval brings the total number of teachers recruited by Oyetola’s administration to 2,500.

In a statement issued by Olawale Rasheed, chairman of the Ademola Adeleke Transition Committee’s media subcommittee, the governor-elect criticized the worker’s recruitment and added that the move was a cover for complicating the state’s economy.

The committee reported that the Oyetola administration had illegally recruited thousands of people over the previous two months without taking into account the state’s ability to pay them and without any workforce planning, resulting in governance motivated by resentment and a desire to bring the state to ruin.

“As a freshly-elected governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has a well studied plan to fill the manpower gap within the educational sector and other areas of needs without further complicating the already troubled workforce and over-bloated remuneration space.

“The plan to illegally recruit the teachers and OYES personnel is another evil agenda to disrupt the incoming governor’s agenda to normalise Osun finances and restore dignity of labour. This move is neither altruistic nor a patriotic rendering of service,” the statement said.

“The goal is to deepen financing gridlock, plunge Osun State workers into another era of pain and hardship and perpetually place the workforce in poverty and the state in under-development. As an incoming governor with a popular mandate, Senator Ademola Adeleke will not allow the inhuman agenda of Governor Oyetola prevail on Osun people.

“It is on this note that we call on Osun State people to beware of involvement in politically-motivated employment processes that won’t stand the test of time. We urge job seekers and all other stakeholders to distance themselves from this desperate ploy, as any illegal recruitment won’t be recognized by the incoming government.

“As we have noted in several statements, any bureaucrat who aids and abets the several illegalities being cooked up and executed by the outgoing government will be held accountable. Illegal disposal of government assets, fraudulent contract payments, scamming disposal of government’s assets, illegal recruitment, unconstitutional conduct of council elections and others will also be sternly revisited after November 28. His Excellency’s vow to Osun people to deliver on good governance remains sacrosanct,” the statement read.
