The recently employed 400 workers of the Ekiti State University have been disengaged by the state government for irregularities.
Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi said in a statement in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday that the action was consequent upon irregularities that characterised the exercise.
Adelusi said the university failed to advertise the vacant positions, thereby disallowing competition.
“The awkward manner the recruitment was carried out did not enable qualified persons who are jobless to freely seek employment.’’
He accused some members of management of deliberately shutting out jobless persons who had nobody to lobby for them, in preference for their own kits and kins.
He emphasised the need to make appointments into every area of government employment free, fair and transparent.
