Organised Labour in Osun State have lauded Governor Adegboyega Oyetola for his worker-friendliness, describing his administration as one that moved workers from enduring hardship to enjoying good welfare packages.
They commended Oyetola for his sincerity and positive disposition towards workers in the same State where workers were previously under-appreciated.
The National President of the Nigerian Union of Local Governments Employees (NULGE), Comrade Akeem Ambali, speaking during the presentation ceremony of Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms of the All Progressive Congress to Governor Adegboyega Oyetola towards the 2022 gubernatorial election in Osun, thanked the governor for neither starving nor unduly punishing workers in three years of his administration.
Also in his remark, the Chairman of the Joint Negotiation Council in Osun, Comrade Adebayo Adejumo, described Oyetola as a man of great character and positive disposition, who has shown kindness at all times to Labour in Osun.
“The governor is our person, because he has done well for Labour. We appreciate what he is doing in the State, and we laud the Party for giving the State a sellable product.
“He is a man of great character and positive disposition. I have followed this man since he was Chief of Staff and Chairman of Negotiation Committee. Even then, he never lied to us, his words were his bond.
“Initially, we were not happy with his appointment as the chairman of the Committee because it was a sharp departure from the norm. The Head of Service always represented the government in the Committee, while I represent the workers.
“But despite the fact that it was a departure from the norm, Mr Adegboyega Oyetola didn’t disappoint us at all. We endured that administration because of his truthfulness. But since he became the governor, our endurance turned to enjoyment.
“We are ready to support him fully because he fixed our world that crumbled under the previous administration. We are not ashamed to endorse him openly and we will not be cowardly about it”, Adejumo said.
