Workers in Ondo State have been charged to show extra commitment in their service delivery as they no longer have any excuse for none performance.

The state Head of Service, Bayo Philip gave the charge while addressing a group of workers under aegis of G27 Administrative Officers who paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Akure, the state capital, on Wednesday.

Philip noted that the era when the workers were been owed months of salary arrears, leave bonuses and other benefits had gone, giving way to a situation where workers’ salaries are now paid timely in addition to monthly wage award of thirty five thousand naira to each worker and transport palliative among other welfare packages that are been enjoyed by all categories of workers.

He said it is therefore expected that workers would justify their appointments by ensuring that their inputs are not short of expected quality, efficiency and patriotism required.

According to the HOS, all the tenets of the reform agenda championed by the Ondo Service Improvement Programme, OSIP, had further been distilled under his administration to a new approach meaning ‘don’t deliver short, don’t deliver late.’

Decrying a situation where ghost workers would be drawing salaries from the state government, Philip said all hands must be on deck to sanitize the pay roll to ensure that only genuine and legitimate workers are paid wages in the state.

He also called for a situation where transiting of retiring officers from salary payroll to pension payroll would be made seamless and devoid of any encumbrances as been witnessed before.

He gave assurance that his leadership would continue to do only what is noble in pursuance of a virile and enviable public service in the state.

Speaking earlier at the event, the leader of the delegation, who is also the Administrative Secretary in the state Ministry of Environment, Mr Omotayo Akeju, appreciated Mr Philip for nominating many members of the group for the positions of Permanent Secretaries and some others as Administrative Secretaries shortly after his assumption of office as the Head of Service.

Akeju, who also lauded the state governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa for the choice of Bayo Philip as the Head of Service, pledged, on behalf of others, the unalloyed loyalty and support for the leaderships of the Head of Service and the governor respectively.
