Aiyedatiwa to recruit health workers, pay outstanding entitlements |

Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, revealed that, amid the lean resources of the state, health workers will be recruited to fill the available gaps. While disclosing that approval for the recruitment of health workers had long been granted, Aiyedatiwa emphasised that the move would further strengthen the health sector. The governor stated this at the Alagbaka Government Secretariat during the annual prayer organised by the civil servants of the state to herald the new working year. Aiyedatiwa, who commended the public servants in the state for the cooperation given to the government, lauded the organised labour for their support for the government, promising that priority would be given to the welfare of the workers in the state. He said: “We will forge ahead with the approval already given for the recruitment of health workers as a way of strengthening the health sector while filling of vacancies will be done regularly as need arises.” The governor urged civil servants to be committed to their duty and shun partisan politics as the state prepares for another governorship election on November 16, 2024. “This is an election year; let everyone know that the peace of the state is not negotiable and the election is not a do-or-die affair.” On his part, the Head of Service, Pastor Kayode Ogundele, commended the governor for his continuous support in all areas pertaining to issues affecting public servants in the state. Ogundele added that the administration has been workers’ friendly, especially in the areas of regular promotion with financial benefits, equitable distribution of palliatives to cushion the effect of the removal of fuel subsidies, payment of 35,000 wage awards, presentation of SUV cars to 30 Permanent Secretaries, and other welfare packages.
