Aiyedatiwa approves promotion of 4,200 workers

By Kemi Olatunde

Ondo State Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa has approved the promotion of 4,200 workers due for promotion in the state with financial benefits.

Head of Service, Mr. Bayo Philip stated this at the official flag off of the year 2024 promotion exercise for civil servants in Akure.

While expressing appreciation to the Governor for the gesture, he noted that it is important that beneficiaries put in their best in their service delivery.

While stressing that his leadership will be aversed to a situation where officers retiring early in a particular year they are due for promotion would be made to go home without their last promotion.

The Head of Service said the promotion process for year 2025 would commence and be concluded before the end of the year, adding that “they would begin to enjoy their promotion from the beginning of the year and subsequent years.”

He called on public servants to insulate themselves from partisan politics, adding that they steer clear of any form of election campaigns under any guise.

He, however, enjoined them to sustain the integrity of the service with the use of the newly distilled approach ”don’t deliver short, don’t deliver late” as their guilding principle.

“I must appreciate Mr Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who said, Head of Service, don’t pursue me with any file, everyone who is due for promotion, go ahead and promote them.

“The position of our governor, Aiyedatiwa is that a labourer is worthy of his wage even before his sweat will dry and an officer is worthy of his promotion as and when due.’

“I must also tell you. This is an election year. Do your job. You are civil servants and have nothing to do with partisan politics. Engage your mind more than you engage your mouth.” Philip said.

Earlier in her remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Office of Establishment and Training, , Mrs Dare-Atuse Olufunke enjoined participants not to take the promotion for granted, stating that they should justify it through improved efficiency in their new positions.

She lauded the government for prompt approval of the process without stringent conditions and unnecessary encumbrances.
