The state government has directed immediate past appointees to return official vehicles by Friday, August 25, 2023.
In a statement released on Friday, the state government issued this directive to the former aides. The statement was signed by Professor Olanike Adeyemo, the Secretary to the State Government.
The directive specifically exempts certain individuals, including the Governor, Deputy Governor, Speaker and members of the House of Assembly, Chief Judge of the State, Judges, Secretary to the State Government, Chief of Staff, Head of Service, Commissioners, Permanent Secretaries, Accountant-General, Auditors-General, and Surveyor-General. Additionally, individuals who have been gifted vehicles at the governor’s discretion are also exempt from this directive.
For officials who possess official vehicles due to the governor’s discretionary gift, or those who have documentary evidence proving they were gifted official vehicles, the statement instructs them to present the evidence to the appropriate officers in their respective Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs).
The statement, issued via the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Sulaimon Olanrewaju, emphasizes that those who currently possess official vehicles without proper authorization are to return the vehicles on or before Friday, August 25, 2023.
“Schedule officers in Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) in the State Public/Civil Service are mandated to recover official vehicles that have been taken away without due authorization, if not returned on or before Friday, 25th August, 2023,” the statement concludes.
