Concise News understands that the workers were appointed by the immediate past administration of Ayodele Fayose.
Fayemi revealed this during the presentation of cheques covering their outstanding remunerations recently in Ado-Ekiti.
He was represented by his Chief of Staff Biodun Omoleye who lauded the understanding and patriotism of the former appointees while serving with his government.
Also, he wished them well in their future endeavours.
While reacting to the development on behalf of the beneficiaries, the out-gone chairman of the House of Assembly Service Commission Tunji Odeyemi thanked Fayemi for the gesture.
“We are most delighted for an avenue like this. I must confess that this opportunity we are having today is very uncommon,” he said.
“When a new governor or government comes on board, what they usually do is to remove members of commissions and boards appointed by their predecessor not minding the laws establishing those commissions.
“But you have magnanimously retained us and now paying our outstanding salaries. As far as Ekiti is concerned, from 1999 to date, the opportunity we are having like this has not been very common. We are grateful to His Excellency for this.”
