Gov. Rauf Aregbesola of Osun has commended the state’s  workers for their selfless services, inspite of the prevailing economic challenges in the country.

Aregbesola gave the commendation in Osogbo on Thursday at  a  lecture organised  to commemorate his  seventh  year in office.

He said  28 percent of the workforce take 50 percent of  salaries  monthly, adding that  civil servants had demonstrated true friendship with government.

Aregbesola, however,  called on the workers  to be patient with the government, adding that their sacrifice  for the development of the state was appreciated.

The guest speaker, Dr Goke Adegoroye, who spoke on the challenges being faced in the public service, called for  efficiency in service delivery to ensure  good governance.

He identified redundancy, insufficient budgets  and lack of effective coordination as factors  hindering productivity and efficiency in governance.

Earlier, Mr Moses Aboaba, the pioneer Secretary to Osun Government  and Head of Service, had called on the governor to ensure improvement of  the Staff Development Centre.

Aboaba noted that human development had been a veritable tool in achieving positive government goals.

‘‘ The civil service must occupy the rightful place just as is the case in the old Western Region when it was acclaimed as the best civil service in the federation,’’ Aboaba said.

He also commended  the governor for the  achievements  recorded in the state since the inception of his administration.
