We’ll soon sing song of abundance, Ajimobi to Oyo workers
1 May 2017 National
GOVERNOR Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state has assured the state’s workers that government had activated all measures to ensure that all backlog of salaries are cleared.
Noting measures to particularly include increasing the state’s Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), he implored all workers to remain hardworking, dedicated and committed to their job.
Empathising with workers who had grappled with hard times, he avowed optimism that the state would “soon sing a new song of prosperity and abundance”.
Ajimobi in the workers day message issued by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Mr Yomi Layinka, harped on the imperativeness of productivity at work, which he noted would translate into the increase in the state’s IGR.
“I congratulate the entire workforce in Oyo State including those in the private and informal sectors. This year’s Day has provided another opportunity for you all to take stock and assess your performance.”
“On our part as government we are exploring many opportunities to enhance the internally generated revenue of the state. We will spare no effort to ensure that we clear the four-month salary arrears. I urge you to play your part dutifully to achieve this.”
“No doubt, times are hard because of the pervading poor state of the economy. I feel your pains and I’m optimistic that we shall soon sing a new song of prosperity and abundance. May none of you be missing by that time.”
“I can say without any equivocation that workers in Oyo State are among the very best you can find anywhere in the country. But, for the few yet to embrace the new order of hard work, accountability, dedication and commitment I urge you join the train.”
Ajimobi further prayed for a healthy and hazard-free 2017 for the workers in the state.
