The Ekiti State Head of Service (HOS), Dr. Gbenga Faseluka, has been given one week within which to distribute promotion letters to the over 45,000 civil servants who recently sat for qualifying interview and passed.
Governor Ayo Fayose gave the one-week ultimatum on Saturday to Faseluka at a news conference in Ado Ekiti.
He also said his administration was set to fulfill an earlier promise of employing over 2,000 new hands into the state public service.
He said he would personally supervise and monitor the process of recruiting the new workers, so as to guard against any form of favouritism.
Fayose said those to be employed would cut across all the 16 local government areas of the state without political or religious attachment.
“Once you are tested and deemed to be qualified, you will be taken without the so-called connection that is the norm in most places,’’ he said. (NAN)
