The Oyo state government, on Monday, said necessary machinery has been put in motion to promote civil servants who were denied promotions during the reigns of the immediate past administration in the state.
The government also disclosed that efforts have been intensified to employ more legal practitioners into the service of the Oyo state government in a bid to reduce the backlog of court cases in the state.
The chairman, Oyo state civil service commission, Mr. Kamarudeen Aderibigbe, disclosed these in a chat with newsmen during a stakeholders’ meeting held in Ibadan.
According to him, the executive governor of the state, Engineer Seyi Makinde has ordered the commission to look into the plights of the civil servants and correct the abnormalities introduced into the civil service commission by the immediate past government.
Also speaking, a principal officer in the administration of governor Seyi Makinde who doubles as the governor’s director-general of protocol, Mr. Adegboyega Badejo, maintained that governor Makinde acknowledged teachers as partners in progress in nation-building, noting that the reward for teachers in Oyo state will not be limited to their monthly salaries.
He, however, called on other governors in the Southwest region to emulate the leadership style of governor Seyi Makinde to contribute meaningfully well to the livelihood of their citizens as well as the leaders of tomorrow.
