Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state, yesterday, said that he feels the state workers’ pains over the seven months salaries owed them by the immediate past administration.

Consequently, he has promised to set up a committee which will include the State Accountant General to urgently find a lasting solution to it. 

Akeredolu spoke during his first day in office in Akure where a prayer meeting was organised to welcome him as the sixth governor of the state. 

While appealing for patience on the part of the workers, he said that his administration would put back smiles on their faces soon.

Governor Akeredolu used the opportunity to plead with the striking health workers across the state promising to look into their grievances after they might have called off their one-week strike over non payment of their salaries. 

He said; “Let us be patient with this government, I beg all of you let us work together, and we shall move forward. 

“We have bitumen but nothing is going on there but before two years in office, we shall start exporting it. “Before long, Federal Government shall commence cocoa rejuvenation and the program shall commence in this state .

“Be critical about our government but be constructive in your criticisms because we shall run an open government. Earlier, the Head of Service Toyin Akinkuotu on behalf of the workers pledged to co-operate with the new administration. Akinkuotu prayed that God will use him to put smiles back on the faces of workers in the state who are currently owed salaries.
