However, in a statement by the Ekiti State Government on Thursday, the development followed deliberations by the State Exective Council (SEC) on the report of the committee headed by the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi.

The committee had reviewed irregular appointments made between 2014 and 2018.

Further details revealed that the recruitment exercise contravened due process with the affected workers comprising 600 teachers recruited into the Teaching Service Commission (TSC), 400 personnel employed into the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and 1,000 injected into the system through the Office of Establishment and Training, among others.

Speaking on the development, the Commissioner for Information, Tourism and Values Orientation, Muyiwa Olumilua said the appointments as null and void.

He, therefore, directed the Head of Service, Ayodeji Ajayi, to collate all available vacancies in the Civil Service and prepare for another recruitment exercise.
