Osun State workers today paid a visit to the Governor Gboyega Oyetola in his office for the promise fulfilled by the Governor
The workers walked straight to Abere at the Secretariat, Osogbo, to appreciate the Governor for the implementing of the new #30,000, minimum wage, salary increment, promotion, and conversion.
In his response, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, expressed delight in the appreciation walk, describing it as an exhibition of part of the virtues of an Omoluabi, while emphasizing the need to commit to greater productivity.
In his words: “I am delighted by this act of appreciation put forward by workers in the State. We remain committed to the electioneering promises that we made, especially the promise of prioritizing the welfare of workers.
“We are doing our part of the bargain. I implore you all to be committed to your duties. Overall, we have to improve on the Internally Generated Revenue of the State because it is what we make that we will spend. I charge you all to also help to block leakages and wastages as much as it depends on you. The development agenda of the State is a collective responsibility,” Oyetola stated.
Oyetola also enjoined workers to warn their wards not to align themselves with people or agencies who are bent on destabilizing the government.
Speaking on behalf of the workers, Comrade Adekomi Jacob, the Chairman of the Osun chapter of the Nigerian Labour Congress appreciated the governor, describing the implementation of welfare packages for all categories of workers in the State as welcome succour for workers.
Adekomi said: “We have experienced moments of wants, but now we are being launched into a season of abundance. The year 2012 was the last time we had an annual increment in the State of Osun. That was also the last year workers were promoted.”
