A group of teachers in Osun state whose appointments were terminated by the Executive Order issued by Governor Ademola Adeleke, barricaded the streets of Osogbo in protest against their sacking.
The teachers who were protesting peacefully, pleaded with the Governor to revisit the Executive Order, with a view to reinstating them into the state teaching service in order to reinstate their dignity as citizens of the state.
Isola Eunice, one of the teachers who spoke to newsmen said their recruitment process started way back in 2020 before they were employed in batches by the last administration in 2021 and 2022.
The protesting teachers carried different placards with inscriptions, such as; “Please Reinstate us”, “Please save our lives”, “We follow due process”, “We are Citizens of Osun”, “We lost four colleagues, consider our plights,” among others.
Recall that Governor Adeleke had on November 27, 2022, issued an Executive Order directing the review of workers employed in the state civil service after July 16 in the state. The committee reviewing the issue is yet to submit its reports since December last year.
