Osun State Governor-Elect, Senator Ademola Adeleke has warned against alleged plans by the outgoing Governor of the state to recruit recently interviewed 75,000 O-Yes volunteers into the state civil service.


Senator Adeleke in a statement issued on Tuesday described the alleged recruitment plan by the governor as “a calculated attempt to further financially cripple the state”

The statement , signed by Mallam Olawale Rasheed, Spokesperson to the Governor-Elect said : “Our attention has been drawn to a diabolical move by the outgoing Osun state government to issue letters of appointment to about 75,000 O-Yes volunteers. We remind the public that the state government had shortlisted the volunteers for election purpose few days before the last election.


“The APC government even went overboard by collecting and registering the voters cards of O-Yes youth applicants all in its desperate bid to win the governorship poll. When all scheming and plotting failed , the state governor has now embarked on his Plan B which is to further wreck the state by deepening her current bankruptcy and indebtedness.

“There is nothing, except deep hatred for Osun people, that will make a government struggling to pay salaries and pensions to want to illegally recruit 75,000 new staff. There is no justification except a desire to impoverish and punish people for exercising their rights to vote out an insensitive, lying government.

“We use this medium to call on Governor Oyetola to toe the path of honour and responsibility by not destroying the state further through his many vindictive post-election actions and plans. The Governor should be reminded that his hostile post-election actions are further eroding what remains of his goodwill.

“We want to finally put it on record that our administration will not accept any illegal recruitment nor be responsible for any commitment so entered into. Anything done without due process and compliance with extant laws will be immediately nullified upon our assumption of office including among others reported sale of Osun mining titles, last minute high profile appointments in key agencies, illegal election into local governments, disposal of government assets and the issuance of letters of appointment to the O-Yes volunteers.”
