The governor of Osun state, Senator Adeleke Ademola, has inaugurated the Staff Audit/Appointments/Promotion Review Committee, chaired by Dr Muyiwa Oladimeji; State Assets Inventory and Recovery Committee, chaired by B. T. Salam; Contracts/MoU/Agreements Review Committee, chaired by Mr. Niyi Owolade; and Chieftaincy Affairs Review Committee.
The committee was saddled with the responsibility of repatriating the looted funds and public assets that were the property of the state.
Mallam Olawale Rasheed, the governor’s spokesman, said this in a statement on Wednesday.
The four panels inaugurated in Osogbo are also to review all appointments made after July 17 by the last administration.
Adeleke, represented by the Deputy Governor, Mr. Kola Adewusi, decried the widespread ”pillaging” of government assets.
“You must right the wrongs and discharge your mandates with a sense of urgency.
”We assure the people that we will not back down on our resolve to stop all post-July 17 illegalities,” he said, assuring that the state payroll pre-July 17 remains intact.
Adeleke said the state government had not sacked any worker on the Osun payroll. ”Those with issues to explain are those who entered the payroll after July 17,” he said
