Oyo Govt. Jerks Up Workers Salaries
The Oyo State Government has announced an increment in the salaries of civil servants in the state.
Governor Abiola Ajimobi made the announcement while addressing workers who were on queue to board the free Ajumose buses at the Government Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan on Thursday.
He explained that the salary development was the aftermath of the meeting he held with the state chapter of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), stressing that the union would brief the workers on the details of the salary enhancement.
Governor Ajimobi said that the salary enhancement ranged from 10 to 30 per cent increment, depending on the Grade Level of each civil servant.
While expressing his administrationâ€™s commitment to the welfare of workers in the state, he said that the provision of the 10 Ajumose buses to convey workers to and fro work free of charge was aimed at making the working environment conducive for them.
He also noted that his administration had, since inception, introduced a lot of innovations into the civil service in order to improve the lots of the civil servants.
Governor Ajimobi said that the salary increment would go a long way in boosting the morale of workers and enhance more commitment and dedication to duties.
Some of the workers, who were queuing for the free Ajumose buses at the close of work, commended Governor Ajimobi for the wage increment as well as the provision of the free buses.
The apparently excited civil servants engaged in fervent prayers for the governor and the success of his administration.
In their separate comments on the provision of Ajumose free buses, two of the civil servants, Mrs. Adejumo Janet and Mr. Iyanda Yekini lauded Governor Ajimobi for the free bus initiative, stressing that the initiative had saved them a lot of money which they had hitherto been spending on transportation on monthly.
