The workers were, however, recalled by the present administration of Makinde.

Olatubosun said, “97 civil servants dismissed in 2012 were recalled the moment this administration got into office. The executive council, today, approved their rotational promotion and payment of gratuity to the concerned ones among them.
“This is in furtherance of the present administration’s drive to give cause for the working population to be happy for the job they do; it is also a testament to the fact that this is a government with large heart, that caters for the welfare of all.”
