The Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has reinstated three Permanent Secretaries whose appointments he said were unjustly reversed by the immediate past administration headed by Governor Ayo Fayose in 2014.
This was contained in a statement on Thursday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Yinka Oyebode.
The affected Permanent Secretaries are Grace Iyabo Fadipe, Emmanuel Olajide Owolabi and James Babalola Folorunso.
The Governor also directed that their entitlements from the period their appointments were reversed be calculated and paid.
Their reinstatement came barely two months after Fayemi reinstated six Permanent Secretaries illegally sacked by Fayose.
The three officials were appointed Permanent Secretaries in 2014, but the immediate past administration unjustly reversed their appointments.
Governor Fayemi, in approving their reinstatement after a review of their cases, said: “What happened to them is against the rule of law and natural justice. It is only fair that they be reinstated to their former status. Even if they have retired, their entitlements should be calculated on that status.”
The Governor said efforts at restoring the Ekiti values also include ensuring that justice is served to all.
