I”ll Meet Your Expectations, Says Abiodun To Ogun Workers.

THE Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, on Monday, assured the state workforce that all their expectations from his administration would be met steadily.

He gave the assurance while addressing workers in the State at the Arcade Ground, Governor’s Office Abeokuta, that the workers are central to the vision of his government by providing good governance to all and sundry.

Abiodun, flanked by his deputy, Engr (Mrs) Noimot Salako-Oyedele and the State Head of Service, Lanre Bisiriyu, noted that the new government may not achieve any meaningful development without a vibrant and committed workforce.

He sought cooperation from the workers in driving the State to an enviable position among the comity of states in the federation, insisting that workers entitlements would not be tampered with.

The governor told the workers that salaries would be paid promptly with or without allocation from the federal account.

He said, “In our vision, we placed good governance as a priority and under good governance, we are of the opinion that we cannot go far if we owe our workers salaries and other entitlements.

“You cannot have a focussed and qualitative governance when you are owing salaries or salary arrears and unremitted Contributory Pension Scheme. We are committed that salaries will be paid as and when due without waiting for federal allocation.

“You need motivation for optimal performance. We”ll ensure training and re-training for better performance. Be rest assured that we have you at heart. Your welfare is our priority. All salary arrears will be paid. Contributory Pension will be remitted to the PFAs.

“I know you have a lot of expectations, but I want to plead with you that you give me some time to review them systematically.”

He added that the state would be defined by a renewed and committed workforce under his watch.

Abiodun promised that the State would take advantage of its proximity to Lagos to bring about all-round development.

The governor also added that the issue of security would not be handled with kid gloves under his administration, saying his government will re-establish the Security Trust Fund under a new chairman.

“Ogun State will not be the Banana Republic under us. We will not condone any lawlessness. Security is key to us,” he added.
