Ekiti to Dismiss any Male Worker Involved in Sexual Assault
The Ekiti state Head of Service, Mrs. Peju Babafemi, has said that immediate dismissal awaits any male worker caught sexually assaulting his female counterpart in the state civil service.
Babafemi stated this while receiving the wife of the state governor, Mrs. Bisi Fayemi, who paid her an advocacy visit in her office, in Ado-Ekiti.
According to the head of service, the present administration has zero tolerance for sexual offenders, stressing that the government will not condone any act of sexual abuse in the state, especially within the civil service.
She said that public service rules had provisions which frown at gender-based violence.
In her remarks, Mrs. Fayemi commended the head of service for her support in ensuring that the state was free of gender-based violence, especially within the civil service.
She called on her to ensure that Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) institutionalised policies and programmes that would address the issue of gender-based violence.
