Oyo Govt. Reiterates Commitment to Civil Servants Welfare
Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde says his government will continually maintain a system of orderliness and growth in the state public service by placing premium on education, hard work and merit for public and civil servants in the state
He said this during the swearing-in ceremony for newly promoted Permanent Secretaries, Inspector General of education, Tutor General and Surveyor General held at the Agodi Secretariat, Ibadan.
Governor Makinde explained that the era of promotion based on political consideration was gone in the state public service.
The governor noted that the process for the promotion exercise was conducted by an independent body following standard rigours and procedures so as to instill a culture of merit-based reward system in the service.
He urged the newly promoted civil and public servants who have reached the peak of their careers to embrace their new position with trust and discharge their duties diligently without fear of favour.
Governor Makinde added that his administration would ensure constant flow of money in the state economy through regular payment of salaries and other emoluments
Earlier, the Head of Service, Alhaja Amidat Agboola disclosed that about 648 officers shortlisted for the promotion, only 28 eventually got promoted after a rigorous process to ensure merit with additional 2 officers earlier promoted in April 2021.
The newly sworn-in civil and public servants comprised 7 Permanent Secretaries, 10 Inspector General of Education, 10 Tutor General, 1 Surveyor General and 2 Permanent Secretaries promoted since last year
