Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, says he will pay all outstanding entitlements of workers in the state.
Abiodun made the pledge on Tuesday, at the swearing-in of new permanent secretaries, principals general and headteachers general, at the Governor’s office, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
The governor described the workers and pensioners as co-builders, saying they had contributed their quota to the advancement of the state and deserved to be taken care of.
He said, “Our administration will not deny you of the rewards of your meritorious hard work. You have all worked and contributed your quota to the continued development of our dear state.”
“We have cleared the backlogs of promotions of over 10,000 personnel in the education industry,” the governor noted.
Abiodun added that the state would soon clear the backlogs of workers for 2018, 2019 and 2020 promotion exercises.
While congratulating the new appointees, Abiodun said their appointments were testament to their past records and a challenge to do more in the service.
