The Oyo State Head of Service, Ololade Agboola, has been dragged into a ‘ghost job’ mess.
The mess was brought on her by her son Ayobami Agboola who stated that he could use his mother’s connection to get a ‘ghost job’ for a friend.
According to available information, the younger Agboola had been bragging about town about his ability to get a ‘ghost job’ via the connection of his mother.
A ‘ghost job’ is a common practice in state and federal civil service whereby names of non-workers widely known as ghost workers, are added into the workforce and used to receive illegal pay.
The Oyo State Head of Service’s son’s role in what has now become a big scandal was made public after he and a former acquintance, Sulaimon Adesola got into an argument over the response of Governor Seyi Makinde’s administration to the Coronavirus pandemic in Oyo state.
While Ayobami insisted that Adesola’s criticism against Makinde’s administration was because he could not secure a “ghost job” under the government, Adesola fired back by stating it was the head of service’s son who promised to use his mother’s influence to secure him a slot.
Adesola shared a screenshot of a conversation he had with Abayomi to back his claim.
Reaction to the ‘ghost job’ scandal, Ayobami admitted that they had the conversation. The Head of Service’s son however denied being involved in a racketeering scheme and only egged him on because he was doing a pro bono work for him.
