Govt provides conducive environment for civil servants – HoS-
Ondo State Head of Service, Mr. Toyin Akinkuotu has said the State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu did not intimidate workers in the state but has provided conducive working environment for the State civil servants to operate since he assumed office
Akinkuotu made the remark during workers’ parley with the Governor at Adegbemile Cultural Centre, Akure, Ondo State.
At the occasion, Akinkuotu lauded the Governor for not allowing politics to stand between the workers, their welfare and the people in general as it could be seen in the way the governor ensures prompt payment of their salaries and other entitlements as well as regular promotion for all deserving workers.
His words: “It is on record that no worker is harassed or intimidated by Akeredolu’s administration. The person who alleviates our pains by constantly paying our salaries deserves our commendation.
“He has substantially paid our salary arrears. Promotion of civil servants and other benefits are not left out. We are bold to say that Akeredolu is fulfilling all his pre-election promises to Ondo State civil servants.”
The Head of Service therefore pledged the workers’ unflinching support for Akeredolu’s administration, come rain, come shine.
Many of the civil servants who spoke at the venue also echoed the Head of Services remarks and praised Akeredolu for not only clearing the almost seven months salary arrears and other financial liabilities he inherited from the previous administration but for also ensuring regular and prompt payment of salaries since he mounted the saddle of governance in the State.
In his remarks, Akeredolu said workers’ welfare was not what a responsible government should politicise or toy with because of the vital roles they play in the life of any administration. He opined that “labourer deserves his wages” and vowed that no condition would make his administration “return the state civil servants to Egypt” where they would be owed backlog of salaries”, and promised to pay their leave bonuses and their remaining one month arrear.
Governor Akeredolu thanked the workers for their support and promised that deserving civil servants would earn their promotion.
