THE appointments of newly recruited health workers at Osun State University Teaching Hospital (UNIOSUNTH), Osogbo, have been nullified by the state government.
OSUN DEFENDER gathered that the affected health workers who were given appointment letters two weeks ago were asked to go home on Monday.
The management of the hospital, in a memo signed by the Director of Administration, Dr. O.A Owolade, notified the newly recruited workers that their employment has been nullified by the state government.
The memo which was sighted by this medium on Wednesday reads: “This is to inform the newly recruited staff to the outreach centers that the recruitment exercise earlier conducted had been nullified in accordance with the Osun State Government directives. This notification supersedes the earlier memorandum released. Thank you.”
The reasons behind the sudden turnaround by the state government remained unknown.
Speaking with OSUN DEFENDER, one of the affected workers who do not want his name in print said they were asked to go home on October 19, 2023 with the excuse that the appointment exceeded the number of employees required.
“He said: “The workers recruited are over 100. We resumed early October 2023 but before we received our salary for the month, we were asked to go home on October 19, 2023.
“We are still hoping they would call us back. The information we heard was that they recruited more than they needed.”
