He said the governor promised to review all appointments and employment made by his predecessor, Adegboyega Oyetola, with a view to ensure due process was followed.

“The review panel is to look at the numbers of the people that were employed, due processes of the employment, and qualification among other things. Before our taking over, there were issues of backdating of employment, even till last year. So order 1-5 will be operationalize by order 6 which are the panels.
“Those that were employed from July 17 till our takeover are still at work presently, they have not been sacked. The staff audit will review the employment. Within 4 hours, Adeleke has dismantled the illegality of 4 months, all the bobby traps he has dismantled them.“
