The Governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic, Senator Nurudeen Ademola Adeleke has called the attention of the Osun state governor to divine instruction in all holy books to the effect that a labourer deserves his wages in good time.
Adeleke stated this in response to a 3-day warning strike embarked upon by Labour Unions in Osun state as a result of a 34-month arrears of salaries, allowances and pensions owed by the State government.
Adeleke’s position is contained in a release by the Head of Media and Public Communication of the PDP campaign organisation, Mr Bamidele Salam.
The Governorship candidate wondered why the State Governor would neglect such a fundamental obligation of government for so long without any justifiable reason.
Adeleke said the civil service is the engine room for meticulous implementation of programmes and policies of any serious government and that the institution must be respected and highly motivated.
While commending the Labour Unions for their endurance and resort to constitutional means of agitating for their rights, Senator Adeleke promised that the PDP government will revert all anti-workers policies of the Aregbesola administration when voted into office.
He reiterated his personal commitment to the welfare of all and sundry because he regards leadership as a call to selfless service.
Senator Adeleke described the steadfastness of the workforce in Osun state as commendable and assured that he holds them in very high esteem in the joint task of restoring the glory of the State civil service.
