Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, on Saturday evening slammed a two-week suspension on the newly inaugurated Commissioner for Chieftaincy and Home Affairs, Mr Olaiya Atibioke.

The commissioner was nowhere to be found when it was time for him to sign the performance charter on Saturday as part of activities for the three-day retreat for members of the State Executive Council and Permanent Secretaries held at Bishop Adetiloye Hall, Trade Fair Complex, Ado-Ekiti.

According to a statement signed by the Special Adviser (Media) to the Governor, Mr Yinka Oyebode, “the suspension takes immediate effect”.

Oyebode stated that “the Commissioner left the venue of the retreat without permission. He was nowhere to be found when commissioners were called upon to sign the performance charter”.

Oyebanji, who sat through all the sessions of the three-day retreat which began on Thursday, had, in the course of his presentation, reiterated the administration’s zero tolerance for indiscipline and poor performance.
