Isiaka condemns sack of civil servants in Ogun



Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship Candidate in the last election in Ogun State, Mr Gboyega Nasir Isiaka has described the sudden sack of six civil servants by Ogun State Government over what it called “offensive examination question”, for the secondary school students has been condemned as an “act of wickedness, strange to a democratic setting”.

Isiaka who expressed shock at the development, also condemned that spate of demolition of property across the state for cosmetic projects, turning many into homeless and depriving them of their livelihood.

He, however, urged the people of the state to be vigilant and watchful of subsequent draconian policies that could further destroy the sterling legacies of the state and impoverished the common man on the street.

Isiaka, who spoke through his spokesperson, Comrade Ifekayode Akinbode, however, advised the government to review its decision and recall the sacked officers.

He noted that in a civilised clime where sane people are at the helm of affairs, the contents in the said ‘offensive’ article would be dissected to assist government in policy formulation but “what we noticed in Ogun State was that instead of looking at the message they went after the messengers. This is unfortunate”.

The affected workers were officials of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, which included two directors on Grade Level 17, Mrs. Folashade Oresegun (Director, Education Support Services) and Deacon Rotimi Ganiyu Odunsi (Director, Curriculum Development and Evaluation).
