Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo state, has reversed the appointment of 15 new permanent secretaries made by the immediate past Gov. Abiola Ajimobi.
Makinde shortly after the election made a press release concerning the sudden appointment of Permanent Secretaries and contracts which he considered as moves to affect his own administration.
Makinde gave the directives of reversing the appointment of 15 new permanent secretaries at a meeting he had with all permanent secretaries in the state on Friday, ordered the concerned officials to return to their former positions.
This was made known by Prince Dotun Oyelade, the spokesperson of the Seyi Makinde Campaign Organisation.
According to Oyelade, Gov. Makinde will be very consistent with all his campaign promises and this is not an exception.
”The governor has said that all transactions either contractually or in terms of appointments and promotions that were done from March 11 to May 28 would be given closer scrutiny,” he said.
”The governor decided to reverse many of the policies and actions of the Abiola Ajimobi administration made at the eve of his exit because they were borne out of malice.” Oyelade stated.
He described the appointments made and contracts awarded by the last administration after the declaration of PDP as winner of the governorship election as landmines set up for him.
