Ondo HoS charges workers on service

By Kemi Olatunde


Workers in Ondo State have been charged to show extra commitment in their service delivery in order to achieve improved public service.

Head of Service, Mr. Bayo Philip gave the charge while addressing a group of workers under the aegis of G27 Administrative Officers during a courtesy call on him in his office in Akure.

He said that the era when workers were been owed months of salary, leave bonuses and other benefits had gone, stating that it is expected that workers justify their appointments by ensuring that their inputs are not short of expected quality, efficiency and patriotism.

According to the HoS, all the tenets of the reform agenda championed by the Ondo Service Improvement Programme, OSIP, have been distilled under his administration to a new approach; ”don’t deliver short, don’t deliver late.”

Decrying a situation where ghost workers would be drawing salaries from the state government, Philip said all hands must be on deck to sanitize the pay roll to ensure that only genuine and legitimate workers are paid wages in the state.

He also called for a situation where transiting of retiring officers from salary payroll to pension payroll would be made seamless and devoid of any encumbrances as been witnessed before.

He assured that his leadership would continue to do only what is noble in pursuance of a virile and enviable public service in the state.

Speaking earlier at the event, the leader of the delegation and Administrative Secretary of the Ministry of Environment, Mr Omotayo Akeju, appreciated Mr Philip for nominating many members of the group for the positions of Permanent Secretaries and some others as Administrative Secretaries shortly after his assumption of office as the Head of Service.
