Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has terminated the appointment of his political aides effective from July 31.
The Secretary to the State Government, Foluso Daramola, said the action, which was in consonance with state’s transition law, was also to ensure payments of entitlements and terminal benefits of the political office holders as the administration was winding down.
The affected political appointees, according to a memo from the Permanent Secretary, TG Adejumo, on behalf of the SSG, were all Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, Technical Assistants and Executive Assistants.
The memo read in part, “A Transition Committee was constituted to, among others, evolve strategies for a smooth transition from the incumbent to the incoming government.
“One of the duties of the Committee, in line with the Ekiti State Transition Law, is to ensure the payment of entitlements of political office holders including their terminal benefits.
“Dr Kayode Fayemi has approved that the services of all SSAs, SAs, technical assistants and executive assistants would end on 31st July 2022 to enable the state government process all outstanding allowances of the affected officials, more so that the government is winding down,” it stated.
