Osun State Governor, Gboyega Oyetola has reiterated the commitment of his administration to the welfare of workers in the state.
He noted that he will continue to put the welfare of the workers first by ensuring they get their wages and other entitlements at the right time.
According to the Governor, his commitment is a function of the covenant he made with God and the promise he made to the people.
He made the declaration during a meeting with the newly elected NULGE Executives, Council Managers, and Heads of Departments in Local Government, Local Council Development Areas, and Area Offices in the state.
He vowed that he won’t go back on his covenant with God and the promise to the people, adding that with the support his administration has received from the people of the state, he has been motivated to do even more.
“I am particularly overwhelmed by the show of love and by the level of support you have given to us, especially the fact that you still believe in us. Have no doubt in your mind that the welfare of workers remains my priority.
“I’m not someone given to insinuations. I do what is needful by the inspiration of God. So, when I promised I will pay full salaries, people didn’t believe me, but my desire rested in the belief that workers are entitled to their wages and salaries at every point in time.
“I have a covenant with God and with you. Don’t ever think that this is a game and that whatever we have done will be reversed if trusted with a mandate for a second term. Whatever gain we have recorded won’t be reversed.
“We are all partners in the development of the State, I am just fortunate to be the driver. I am absolutely committed to this project called Osun. You have rekindled my hope in the project, and I believe that we will take the state to a very high level.
“This is just the beginning; with God on our side, our State will take its place among the committee of great states,” Oyetola said.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has approved the appointment of a caretaker committee to control the party in Zamfara State.
Naija News reports that the party appointed the committee in pursuant to Section 29(2)(b) of the PDP Constitution 2017 (as amended).
This was made known in a statement signed by the National Spokesman of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan.
