… Permanent Secretary, Kwara Head of Service, others claim knowledge of SUBEB appointment letter
In what is best regarded as victimization of the dissent voices in Kwara state civil service amidst failure to meet up with the promised minimum wage and other welfare packages for workers by Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq during electioneering period, Kwara state government has begun clampdown of workers.
The government has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to Unlawfully detain the immediate past Permanent Secretary of the office of Head of Service, Imam Tajudeen and innocent staff of Office of Head of Service (HOS), especially junior cadres who only act on instructions of their superiors. As at the time of filing this report, scores of the staff of the service are in EFCC net.
The detained junior staff of the HOS, had acted based on the civil service rules which empower them to attend to files seconded to their section by the superiors, which include the immediate past Permanent Secretary, Imam Tajudeen, who has already testified to have ordered them to write and attend to all letters of appointment and other issues from Kwara State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB).
It’s indeed another ploy by the Kwara Governor, Mall. Abdulrasaq, who has sacked close to five thousand (5000) workers from Kwara SUBEB, AGRO Mall, and sweepers under the guise of KWMC since one year of assumption of office, to hoodwink Kwarans of their rights of entitlement and gag the vibrant voices among the civil service administration in the state. This is a government that has not created a new job for Kwarans as promised during otoge campaign but ransacked thousands of Kwarans, employed by past government, from Civil Service.
