The five Permanent Secretaries that were allegedly retired unlawfully in 2014 by the immediate past administration of Ayodele Fayose have been reinstated by the state government.
The reinstatement was contained in a statement on Tuesday by the State Government.
The reinstated Permanent Secretaries are Emmanuel Oso, Alfred Ologuntoye, Ayodeji Ajayi, Funke Falodun, Ayoola Owolabi and Babatunde Alokan.
Their reinstatement followed the successful hearing of their petitions by the National Human Rights Commission, which declared that they were unfairly treated.
The NHRC also agreed with the petitioners and the state government for their reinstatement and settlement of all their outstanding salaries and allowances for the period of their illegal termination of appointment.
Consequently, Governor Kayode Fayemi directed that the five be reinstated accordingly.
The letters communicating their reinstatement was signed by the Head of Service, Dr. Olugbenga Faseluka.
According to the letter, the reinstatement takes effect from November 19.
