The Ekiti state governor, Kayode Fayemi has allegedly sacked 2,000 workers in the state.
The workers, according to reports, are those employed by the immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose.
Meanwhile, Fayose in a reaction through his spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, has said the move by Fayemi has written his name in the history of the state as a person that brought injury to the people.
Olayinka, in the statement released on Wednesday, described the action of the governor as wicked and a political vendetta promoted to its peak.
“Fayemi has only demonstrated the wickedness in his heart by sacking Ekiti sons and daughters who were duly employed by the state government. “It will be on record that the PDP government of Ayodele Fayose gave jobs to over 2,000 unemployed youths in Ekiti while the APC government of Kayode Fayemi sacked them,” Olayinka said.
He also said whoever applauds the “show of wickedness will be reminded in future when actions of Fayemi will also be reviewed.”
“As for those sons and daughters of Ekiti who have now become victims of Fayemi’s wickedness and political vendetta, they should place their hope in God and enforce their rights to seek redress in the court of law,” he said.
