Ondo promotes 14,016 civil servants in one year

The Chairman, Ondo State Civil Service Commission, Dr Afolabi Adewakun, made the disclosure at a press briefing on Monday in Akure.

The Ondo State Government says it has promoted no fewer than 14,016 deserving civil servants in the state between 2017 and 2018.
The Chairman, Ondo State Civil Service Commission, Dr Afolabi Adewakun, made the disclosure at a press briefing on Monday in Akure.
According to him, the promotion affected officers from grade level 02 to grade level 17.
Adewakun also disclosed that 3,091 civil servants in the main stream of the state’s civil service had received their letters.
He said distribution of letters to the remaining 10,923 in parastatals and agencies of government were ongoing.
He said: “One special feature of this exercise is the early approval for the exercise given by Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu.
“He gave the approval as early as August, and you will agree with me that this is unprecedented.
“Hitherto, such approval comes up between October and November of the promotion year and the exercise will not be completed until December.
“I am sure that by now, most, if not all, must have received their letters of promotion.
“Usually, promotion for senior officers on grade level 07 to grade level 17 is handled directly by the commission.
“A total of 1,742 officers were promoted based on the briefs forwarded by the commission by the Head of Service.”
The chairman said the governor’s gesture would not only ensure improved productivity within the service but would also boost the morale of civil servants in the state.
He said: “Since the inception of the Akeredolu’s administration in February 2017, the welfare of workers has been prioritised through motivation and incentives.
“This has resulted in higher productivity leading to better service delivery for the people of the state.”
Adewakun also said the governor approved the promotion of all the deserving officers despite economic challenges being experienced in the country at the moment.
