Fayose Secures SSS, Immigration Jobs For 50 Ekiti Indigenes

Published

on

Ayo Fayose-victoryEkiti State Governor-elect, Mr. Ayo Fayose, on Tuesday distributed letters of employment to Ekiti indigenes he helped secure jobs into federal agencies.

Coordinator of the scheme, Dr. Samuel Omotosho, said there were about 50 people Fayose helped secure jobs into the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Department of State Security, Federal Medical Centre, Ido-Ekiti, and the Nigeria Immigration Service.

Dr. Omotosho gave the names of 11 lucky applicants into FMC as: Olatunji Idowu, Toyin Oriola, Bamidele Idowu, Adewumi Felicia, Idowu Gbenga, Osanyintade Bosede, Bisiriyu Akeem, Titilayo Oluwarotimi Aladelua Bukola and Agunbiade Adesoji.

They received their letters of employment at the situation office of the Ayo Fayose Campaign Organisation in Ado Ekiti, at a brief ceremony.

The identities of those employed into MFA, SSS and NIS were, however, not disclosed, for security reasons.

Speaking at the brief ceremony, Fayose said he didn’t know any of the applicants and was meeting them for the first time, just to distribute the letters of offer of employment to them.

“I submitted 40 of the credentials I received to the Federal Medical Centre and 11 of them were employed. I don’t know any of them. I took the step because those who should get employment are not just those who know the governor or wife of the governor or anyone close to the government”, he said.

The governor-elect assured the people of continued support for all and sundry in the state and called on the people to remain peaceful and law-abiding.

Speaking on behalf of the recipients, Akeem said, “I heard on the radio that unemployed graduates should submit our credentials at Fayose’s office. I took the step and suddenly, I received a call last Wednesday that I should come for my employment letter. It still seems like a dream because I never believed that it could happen”.

He thanked Fayose on behalf of the others and assured him that they would be good representatives of the state at their various places of work.

    Well, i dont know of other establishments bt I can boldly talk about Immigration and DSS. When I read this post, I called my brother in DSS and he told me that DSS which is also known as SSS has not recruited anyone since Fayose won election in June. However, he said that recruitment into DSS for this year has reached final stage. He also said DSS does not give appointment letter to anybody until the person has completed the needed training either the recruit is in junior or senior cadre. Also, my friend in Immigration said he is not aware of any recruitment in the Immigration service between June and now. So, I came to d conclusion that this man who used to be a noise maker, a trumpet blower and a propagandist will never change. Is he the only or the first person that has helped people with jobs? I just pity my fellow ekiti people for electing this man.

“In the first place, the reason, why everybody should join politics, is to serve the people. The essence of government is to shield the poor masses and ensure justice,” he said.

“My main mission of joining the APC is because I have seen justice, I have seen development and I have seen the desire for the leadership at the highest peak to sacrifice their personal comfort just to make the poor people feel good. So I am in the APC to deliver, I am into the APC to help the people.”

The lawmaker promised to work to make sure the APC takes back Adamawa State from the PDP in 2023.
