Akeredolu assures of better welfare for Ondo workers, industrial growth
Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has assured workers in the state of his administration’s resolve to prioritise their welfare despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to the harsh economic realities in the country.
Akeredolu, who charged the workers to remain loyal, steadfast and hard working, said they should improve their attitude to work and be more dedicated to their assignment in the New Year.
He stated this yesterday at the yearly general prayer meeting with civil servants on the first working day of 2022 at the governor’s office in Akure.
The governor stressed that his administration would continue to reward diligence, integrity, trustworthiness and dedication to service, noting that he would not fail to take audacious decisions, when the need arises.
“That is the only way we can deliver on the full import of the Redeemed Agenda to mutually develop service, our state and people. We will ensure that all those who deserve elevation are promoted. We will also not fail in our responsibility to take audacious decisions, even if they are not popular.
“Anyone who works against the interest of the people will be sanctioned. We will continue to encourage and reward diligence, integrity, trustworthiness and dedication to service,” he stressed.
Meanwhile, workers in the state commended the governor for his commitment to their welfare and the development of the state, describing him as “a sincere leader.”
Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) in the state, Sunday Adeleye-Oluwole, who spoke on behalf of the workers, said: “You have said it all. You promised to clear all salary arrears before you leave office and I trust you. When you came on board, you cleared six months of inherited obligations and I don’t see why you will leave with unpaid salaries.”
