Osun TUC Chair Lauds Oyetola For Pardoning 962 Workers

The State of Osun Chapter of the Trade Union Congress (TUC) has commended Governor Adegboyega Oyetola for pardoning 962 workers in the State, who were demoted for committing administrative infractions, including engaging in further studies without following due process.


TUC says, Oyetola is a listening and magnanimous leader

The State Chairman of TUC, Comrade Adebowale Adekola, gave the commendation while reacting to a circular issued by the Office of the State’s Head of Service on Monday, directing all account officers in the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) where the affected workers are posted to ensure the implementation of the governor’s directive.


Oyetola had during a meeting with a labour group in January ordered the reversal of the demotion of all the affected staff totalling 962, urging them not to commit such infractions again and to also show more commitment in their service to the State.


“On the issue of demotion of some workers, we have forgiven those demoted for embarking on further studies without approval. Their cases will be reviewed and their demotion will be reversed as appropriate,” the governor had said.


He also at the time tasked workers in the state to be committed to the policies and programmes of government aimed at making life more liveable for the people.
Adekola said the prerogative of mercy granted the affected public servants showed that Oyetola was a listening, caring and magnanimous leader, adding that his action had further demonstrated his love and concern for workers in Osun.
