Labour lauds Aregbesola for improving workers’ welfare
The chairman of NLC state council, Jacob Adekomi, said the governor has surpassed the expectation of the workers on the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed with workers last year.
This was even as the governor administered oath on nine Headmasters-General and three Tutors-General, presented bond certificates to retirees under the Contributory Pension Scheme and commissioned newly constructed ultra-modern recreation centre at the secretariat.
Adekomi noted the state government has been living up to the demands of workers as exhibited in the prompt implementation of the agreements reached with the state government in December 2017.
In his remarks, the governor said the offices of Headmasters-General and Tutors-General were created as part of his administration’s sensitivity to the need to promote quality and functional education.
He said the initiative was also aimed at providing equal opportunity for all public servants to reach the peak position (Permanent Secretary) in the Public Service.
He noted that by the move, his government had removed all encumbrances which hitherto prevented graduate teachers in the state public service from moving beyond the walls of the schools throughout their years in service by giving them automatic conversion as education officers and changing the profession to a Directorate cadre.
Charging the newly sworn-in Headmasters-General and Tutors-General on effectiveness, good performance and diligence, Aregbesola called on the new appointees to be the vanguards of his education reformation policy in their respective domains.
Aregbesola averred that the Headmasters Generals must know however, that the motivation for their elevation is not just to give them a mouthful and high-sounding titles, but to improve the level of superintendence in schools.
