Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state has assured the state’s civil servants that he will not renege on all his promises to improve on their welfare.
He also pleads with the state’s retired civil servants that he is still committed to their welfare, and clearance of their entitlements, in appreciation of their meritorious service.
The governor renewed his pledge, while inaugurating seven newly appointed permanent secretaries, the state accountant general, the state solicitor general, and four principal generals.
Abiodun at the ceremony which took place at the chamber of the state executive council at the governor’s office, said his administration has cleared the backlog of the 2018/2019 and 2020 promotion of civil servants, and would continue to clear all other outstanding dues and entitlements.
The governor, while appreciating the state’s civil servants, reminded them that Ogun state government is one of the few, still paying salaries before the end of every month.
He said that the new officials were appointed after their excellent performance in assessment and evaluation programmes, adding they were not appointed through lobbying.
The sworn in officials included Waheed Adesina, Adetayo Adewale, Adedayo Shomoye, Oluwaseyi Shokoyar, Doctor Qudus Yusuf, Doctor Oladeinde Kayode, and Adenopo Adegbenga as permanent secretaries.
Also inaugurated were Aregbesola Babatunde as the state’s accountant general and Adebayo Bamidele as the state’s solicitor general.
Others are principal generals including Shobulo Okanlawon for Egba division, Mrs. Adeyemi Abike for Ijebu, Odukoya Owodunni for Remo and Orobiyi Akanbi for Yewa division.
