Chair­man of the com­mis­sion, Dr. Afo­labi Ade­wakun, dis­closed this yes­ter­day at a press con­fer­ence in Akure, the state cap­i­tal.

He said the civil ser­vants who ben­e­fited from the ex­er­cise were those who passed the 2018 pro­mo­tion ex­er­cise across the Min­istries and Ex­tra Min­is­te­rial De­part­ments (MEDS) in the state. He dis­closed that the pro­mo­tion took ef­fect in Jan­uary 2018, while the fi­nan­cial ben­e­fits to the civil ser­vants com­menced on Oc­to­ber 1.

Ade­wakun fur­ther ex­plained that the pro­mo­tion was un­prece­dented in the state, fol­low­ing the early ap­proval given to it by Gov­er­nor Oluwaro­timi Ak­eredolu, adding that he ap­proved it as early as Au­gust this year and pre­vented it from be­ing de­layed till De­cem­ber.

The chair­man stressed that the gov­er­nor, de­spite the crunch­ing eco­nomic chal­lenges, chose to pro­mote the work­ers to en­hance higher pro­duc­tiv­ity and bet­ter ser­vice de­liv­ery for the ben­e­fit of the peo­ple.

He re­vealed that a to­tal of 1,742 of­fi­cers were pro­moted, based on the briefs for­warded to the com­mis­sion by the Of­fice of the Head of Ser­vice, Of­fice of Es­tab­lish­ments and Train­ing, as well as var­i­ous MEDS.

“The same ex­er­cise was car­ried out in all the self­ac­count­ing agen­cies, boards and paras­tatals of gov­ern­ment, where an­other 5,333 of­fi­cers were pro­moted,” he said.
