We Still Await White Paper On Osun Recruitment - Adeleke

The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has assured that he is still awaiting the white paper on Osun recruitment to take action on the matter of civil servants recruited by the administration of his predecessor, Adegboyega Oyetola.

Governor Adeleke made this known on Monday in a radio current affairs programme in Osogbo as part of the activities marking the 100 days of his administration.

Adeleke assured the recruited teachers and health workers affected that he was still awaiting the report of the recruitment committee.

He said: "The White Paper would be finished and I am still studying the situation, to know what is going on in that area.

"Very soon, everything will be okay. Health workers and teachers. I am not going to cheat anybody. Everybody will be okay."

The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has through an Executive Order nullified the recruitment of civil servants into the state's teaching and health services.

The state governor and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had considered the regiments which it alleged were carried out after the July 16, 2022, gubernatorial election as illegal.

Meanwhile, in January 2023, both the recruited teachers and health workers staged peaceful processions calling on the state government to consider their plight.

On the part of the teachers, they maintained that they had been recruited before July 16, 2022, but that their recruitment was only formalised after the gubernatorial election which Ademola Adeleke won.

They also urged the governor to help them as some of their colleagues had died due to depression.

On the part of the health workers, they insisted that their recruitment was carried out as replacements for retired staff of the board.

They also insisted that their recruitment was carried out legally.
