The Governor of the State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has reconfirmed his decision of not sacking any government worker in the state despite the recommendation at the Forum of Governors to lay off staff in order to meet up on monthly salary payment.
Similarly, all Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) in the state are to source for more Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), that whatever amount each council created will be supported with ten percent Matching Grants by the State government, which will be used for the council.
The Chairman, Local Government Service Commission, Elder Peter Babalola made this known while addressing staff of Local Council Development Areas (LCDAs) during his tour of some councils.
He charged the council workers to be mindful of their attitudes to work and that they should guard their job seriously in this trying time, by complementing the good gesture of Ogbeni Aregbesola with dedication and hardwork, as there are others still unemployed.
He then commended the council staff for their punctuality to work . He then informed them of the sharing formula between the former and newly created Local Council Development Areas in the state.
The Commission Chairman also assured the staff of the plans of Governor Rauf Aregbesola to pay in due time full salaries to affected levels, and that they must ensure effective service delivery to the people at the grassroot.
He then charged Acting Heads of Departments and others to live up to expectation, protect government properties, keep their office environment clean and also ensure that the community in the council areas stay clean.
