Oyo Recalls about 40 Per cent of Sacked Workers

Published

on

Oyo State Government was one of the first states to discover ghost workers in this present dispensation. However, with outcries from various quarters, the state government has recalled several of these ghost workers who were initially laid off.

Meanwhile, as other state governments are still busy discovering ghost workers and sacking them, the Oyo State government has approved the reinstatement of about 40 per cent of sacked local government workers disengaged by the Local Government Service Commission.

This latest development has been made known in a release signed by the commission’s Director of Information, Mr Bimbo Ladepo, a copy of which was made available to Saturday Tribune on Friday. About 1,300 council workers were sacked in August for offences ranging from age falsification, doctoring of age, ill-health and non-production of primary school certificates to stagnation in service.

However, a review committee, consisting mainly members of the commission and representatives of the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), was constituted to look into the allegations of improper disengagement by some of the affected workers, and, among other recommendations, the committee submitted that officers who were qualified to receive retirement/withdrawal benefits be requested to begin the processing of such benefits.
