The Oyo State Executive Council on Tuesday has approved the reinstatement of 300 out 1,803 civil servants wrongfully sacked by the immediate past administration of Sen. Abiola Ajimobi.

Mr Olasunkanmi Olaleye, the state Commissioner for Establishment and Training, made this known while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the weekly State Executive Council meeting.

The governor on Oct. 16 while receiving the report of the committee promised not to hesitate to re-absorb workers that were found to have been wrongly dismissed from the service of the state according to the recommendations of the committee.

The commissioner explained that such dismissed workers would be reabsorbed into the civil service.

He also confirmed that the council authorized the outright sack of 499 civil servants that were dismissed by the Ajimobi administration over fake certificates.

Olaleye further stated that the state government would honour the court judgement on the suits of 12 other civil servants who went to court to seek redress over what they described as unlawful termination of their appointment by the immediate past government.

Recall that Gov. Seyi Makinde on assumption of office had set up a committee to look into the cases of the sacked workers.
