Dr Kayode Fayemi, had on Wednesday nullified all employments made by the administration of former Governor Ayodele Fayose from July 2018.
The commissioner for Information, Mr Muyiwa Olumilua, announced this at a press conference held on Wednesday in Ado, the Ekiti State capital.

Olumilua that the employments lacked due process and were hurriedly done after Fayemi won the governorship election in the state last year.
