Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji has recalled the Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Home Affairs, Mr Olaiya Atibioke from suspension.
The recall followed expiration of the two weeks suspension imposed on the Commissioner on the 12th of August.
According to a statement by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, Mr Yinka Oyebode, Mr Atibioke is expected to resume work at his office on Monday.
The Governor urged top government functionaries in the state to take a cue from the suspension, while restating his administration’s zero tolerance for indiscipline and actions that are inimical to the progress of the state.
It would be recalled that Olaiya was suspended barely one week after inauguration.
A statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Yinka Oyebode, the Governor stated that the suspension follows the commissioner’s unauthorised departure from the three-day retreat organised for members of the State Executive Council and Permanent Secretaries held in Ado-Ekiti, the State capital on Saturday.
“The Commissioner left the retreat without permission. He was nowhere to be found during the signing of the performance charter,” he said
