Gov. Rotimi Akeredolu

 Newly inaugurated Governor of Ondo State, Mr Rotimi Akeredolu has said  he feels the plight and sufferings of all workers in Ondo State and will not rest until all their salary backlogs are fully cleared.

Akeredolu stated this in Akure, the Ondo State capital, while formally meeting with the workers in the State Civil Service on Monday.

In his address, the Governor said all issues relating to the settlement of their salaries would top his administration’s agenda.

“I am aware of your pains and agony. I feel your pains and what you are going through, and I can see your sufferings. I am surprised that you are still able to put up these smiles without seven months’ salaries,” he said.

He appealed to striking doctors and nurses in the state to end their industrial action and dialogue with the current government, assuring them that their grievances will be promptly attended to.
