The Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi, has approved the immediate release of years 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 promotions in the state Civil/Public Service of Oyo State.
The outgoing Head of Service, Mr Soji Eniade, made this disclosure in a statement on Tuesday in Ibadan.
Mr Eniade said that the governor is greatly committed to the welfare of workers in the state, pledging that the kind gesture would be adequately reciprocated by workers in the state through hard work and commitment while in the service of Oyo State.
The HOS charged workers in the state to be diligent, dedicated, devoted, committed and work assiduously towards ensuring financial sufficiency for the state, stating that the ongoing restructuring exercise in the civil/public service was embarked upon to clean and sanitize the system.
He solicited the support and cooperation of workers for the state government towards achieving desirable results in the ongoing state Public/Civil service reform in order to uplift the system to an enviable height.
Mr Eniade emphasized that the restructuring exercise of the government is not meant to witch-hunt anybody, saying that what the government is doing is a standard periodic self-check which is standard practice throughout the world where quality service delivery is expected.
The outgoing Head of Service commended the state governor for his wise and bold decisions that have kept the state afloat despite the present economic situation in the country, urging that workers should reciprocate the governor’s kind gesture with commitment, efficiency and effectiveness in discharging their duties.
