Osun state government lifts embargo on promotion, confirmation and conversion of workers

Osun state Government has lifted embargo on conversion, advancement, promotion, confirmation and career progression of the state civil servants, according to Dr Festus Oyebade, the state Head of Civil Service. Dr Oyebade, who disclosed this in a circular he issued in Osogbo yesterday, also said that the state government had agreed to pay full salary of December 2017 for the workforce. He said the approval was in honor of the agreement the state government reached with labor unions in the state on December 30, 2017.

The head of service said Governor Rauf Aregbesola, had also approved payment of leave bonuses, gratuity and pension for the retirees on both the old pension and new contributory pension scheme. He said the ban on conversion, advancement, promotion and confirmation was meant to manage the meager financial resources of the state and reduce the severe effect of the economic recession, then, on the state.
