Osun Gov. appoints 30 perm secs 1 week before leaving office, Adeleke kicks
The governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola, has approved the appointment of 30 senior servants as permanent secretaries barely one week before leaving office. The appointment was confirmed on Thursday, November 24.
Meanwhile, the governor-elect of the state, Ademola adeleke, has countered the appointment of the senior servants as permanent secretaries just a few days before the governor’s tenure officially ends.
Adeleke stated that the appointees will be treated as government appointees and will follow the outgoing governor out of office.
He described the appointment as a Greek gift, adding that “no waiver will be entertained in sacking from office any kangaroo permanent secretary.”

” We want to put on records that those who accept the appointments should be ready to leave the service whether or not their service tenure has reached statutory age. The occupants will be treated as political appointees who will automatically follow the outgoing Governor out of public service from November 28.
“At the same time, those who still want to remain in service of Osun state government should decline the Greek gift from the outgoing Governor. We affirm that no waiver will be entertained in sacking from office any kangaroo permanent secretary.”
