The Osemawe and paramount ruler of Ondo kingdom, Oba (Dr) Victor Kiladejo has expressed appreciation to the government over the privilege given to the sons and daughters of Ondo kingdom in the civil service of Ondo State.
He stated this during the heroic welcome of Mr. Toyin Akinkuotu to Ondo kingdom as he retired from the state civil service.
Kiladejo urged the state Pension Board to use their good office to fast-track the payment of entitlements of retired civil servants in the state.
He urged them to further promote and assist others who are in need to ensure development of the kingdom.
The Osemawe urged them to be their brothers keepers, while enjoining them to be faithful in discharging their duties till they retire.
The ex- Head of Service, Mr. Toyin Akinkuotu pledged to serve the community in his capacity as a private retired man with the support of the people.
He described the responsibility given to him by the Osemawe as the administrator of the Palace Forum as a challenge and a big responsibility which he promised to do in order to develop Ondo.
Speaking earlier, the Permanent Secretary in the Political and Economic Affairs of the Governor’s Office and also the president of Lujamas Association Akure, Mr Fredrick Oladiran, described the visitation to the palace as coming home to appreciate the Osemawe for the roles he has played in the life of the retired HoS.
Olawale added that the major reason for the visitation to the palace was to formally inform the Osemawe that the HoS from Ondo kingdom had retired from the service.
