Ogun sacks commissioner

The Ogun State government has sacked one of the commissioners in the state civil service commission, Mr Ebenezer Olubena.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr Taiwo Adeoluwa.

Olubena was a Commissioner IV in the commission until his removal, which was in accordance with the extant laws of the state.

The statement directed Olubena to hand over all government property and documents in his possession to the permanent secretary in the commission with immediate effect.

When contacted on phone, Adeoluwa said: “The law gives the governor the privilege to hire and fire.”
