Makinde Approves, Promotion Of Oyo State Civil Servants From 2017 – 2020, Workers Soon To Receive Letters
By Henry Odeh
The Executive Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde has approved the release of promotion letters to qualified Civil and Public servants eligible for the outstanding years from 2017 – 2020 promotions.
This is contained in a signed Press Release by the Chairman, Civil Service Commission, Alh Kamoru Aderibigbe, on Monday August 9 and made available to newsmen.
The promotions according to the Commission take effect nominally from the month of January or July of each respective years for each of the considered eligible officers for the respective promotion years in line with the statutory promotion parameters while the financial effective date of promotion shall start from 1st August, 2021.
Recall that the Governor has in what was described as ‘unprecedented’ move granted the approval for the promotion of four consecutive promotion years despite the prevalent economic crunch.
The Civil Service Commission in collaboration with appropriate Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government in the State had meticulously processed the promotions to ensure due diligence.
All the officers that have been duly promoted will begin to collect their letters of promotion without further delay.
Alhaji Adéríbigbé explained that the gesture was the first of its kind in the history of the State for a sitting Governor to approve arrears of promotion that was owed by the preceding administration in the face of dwindling resources, even without Labour unrest.
The commission’s Chairman therefore, charged all civil/public servants in the State to reciprocate the kind gesture of the Governor by rededicating themselves by giving their best in the service of the State.
The Chairman however, expressed his appreciation to the Governor for his commitment towards improving the quality of life of workers in the state as well as pensioners who are out of service already.
