Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun State said his administration may review the sacking of 1500 teachers ‘illegally’ recruited by his predecessor, Gboyega Oyetola.
Adeleke said the case of the teachers will be reviewed after the electioneering period and possibly along with others issues the administration’s review committee investigated.
He stated this while fielding questions from newsmen on the occasion of his 100 days in office at Executive Lounge of the Governor’s Office in Osogbo.
The Governor said, “I am a governor that believed in rule of law and due process. After the electioneering period, we will look into their case. If due process is followed then I will know what to do, but I don’t believe in deploying sentiment into such issues.
“You will recall I set up various committees when I took over governance of Osun state. The committees are already submitting their reports. I have consequently set up white papers committee on the recommendations of the various committees. Before long, our government will take decisions on the various recommendations through a white paper.
“On the University of Ilesa, the Adhoc Committee has submitted its report. As I noted above, the white paper on the committee report will soon be issued. I assure the people of Ijesaland that my administration is committed to the protection of their interest. Our administration is only determined to ensure a sustainable take-off of the University”.
