The Oyo State Government on Sunday sacked 3,000 workers over certificate forgery and age falsification.
According to a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, Festus Adedayo, “the sacked workers include workers without letters of appointment and those having disciplinary cases.”
Explaining why it embarked on the sack, the state government said the exercise was imperative to save the integrity of the service.
The statement read in part, “The state government will not continue to abet the service of workers who forged their certificates, ages or who violated their rules of engagement to stay a day longer in the workforce. It is like a cancer which, if not promptly checked, can eat up the whole of the system.”
Meanwhile, Ajimobi will on Monday swore in 11 permanent secretaries recently promoted in the civil service.
