Ondo State Government has said it workers will surely smile and celebrate Xmas with their stomach filled with variety of foods as they desire as the government is doing all it can to pay the state civil servants.
According to a statement issued by Mr Donald Ojogo, Commissioner for Information and Orientation, the state government accused the PDP of suffering from amnesia in its quest to defend the same civil servants it’s owed seven months before the APC take over in 2017.
Below is the press statement unedited:
PDP Can’t Pretend To Defend Its Former Victims
The PDP will be shocked at the unworkability of their devious wish and desire for Ondo workers. The height of pretence is this unpardonable display of amnesia on the part of a party which emplaced a government that laid off several workers with many losing their lives while it lasted, amid a huge debt profile aside a seven-month old unpaid salary burden.
Yes, there are challenges and our desire is to face the these challenges headlong with a view to charting a more robust and holistic path to surmount same.
We will, therefpre, unlike the doomsday ilk that held sway before us, rather focus on exploring means to measure up with our avowed commitment to workers welfare than dispensing the state’s commonwealth to bribe higher powers for political stability as was the case before now.
This Government will ensure workers in the public service enjoy a very pleasant season. The next one week will manifest Government’s seriousness in this regard. Workers will smile, as further deeper positive thoughts are already firmed up to ease economic challenges imposed on all of us by the global financial straits.
Workers in the State public service are already well acquainted with the pretentious posturing of the PDP. They know too well that there could not have been a better advertisement of hypocritical vices by their immediate past tormentors.
This party called PDP lacks the moral status to defend its former victims the current Akeredolu-led administration is striving hard to bring out of an eight-year old economic strangulation wrought on them by the viciousness of a flipant leadership.
