ado-Ekiti— Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said his administration is correcting the lopsidedness in the state’s civil service and won’t allow anybody to bastardise the system.
He spoke in Ado-Ekiti yesterday at a meeting with top civil servants during the selection of three permanent secretaries.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, the governor also said he would always be guided by the fear of God in his handling the affairs of the state.
“I want it be on record that I did not and will not bastardise the civil service and we will not allow anybody to do that. I am guided by the fear of God in all I am doing. I met lopsidedness in the civil service when I came on board and we have corrected that,” he said.
In his remarks, the Head of Service, Dr. Gbenga Faseluka, said the selection of new permanent secretaries was done in a transparent manner and commended the governor for charting a new course for the service.
“This is a novel idea and has never happened before in the history of the state’s civil service, It is never heard of in any state in Nigeria,” he said.
The Secretary to the State Government, Dr Mrs. Modupe Alade, lauded the governor for following the path of justice.
The new permanent secretaries are Mr Kunle Olofin, Mr Stephen Adunmo and Dr Ayotunde Omole.
