OSUN workers have hailed the Governor Adegboyega Oyetola administration for prioritising workers’ welfare.

They said the governor’s commitment to good governance, transparency and accountability prevented industrial action in the last 24 months.

The workers spoke at the 2020 Civil Service Productivity Lecture, Awards and Colloquium organised to commemorate the second year anniversary of Oyetola in office.

It was held at the Staff Development Centre, Abere, Osogbo.

The state Chairman of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Jacob Adekomi, said the current administration has displayed sincerity and honesty in the management of the state’s resources than for any worker to agitate or embark on any strike.

Head of Service, Dr. Festus Olowogboyega Oyebade, eulogized Governor Oyetola for redefining the civil service through his prompt response to workers’ welfare and well-being.

Governor Oyetola hailed the doggedness, resilience and commitment of the workers, which he described as the driving force for the smooth relationship between the government and the workers and among the workers.

He acknowledged the support and understanding displayed by the workers since the inception of his administration, noting: “Workers are our pride and we are immensely proud to have them as dependable partners in our quest for building the Osun of our dreams.
