Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of Osun State has appointed Mr. Wahab Adeniran Adewoyin, as a permanent secretary.
Until his appointment, Adewoyin was the Executive Secretary of Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC).
While speaking yesterday during the swearing-in in Osogbo, the Governor said his administration will reward diligents and hardworking civil servants.
According to him, Adewoyin’s appointment was a demonstration of the administration’s commitment to rewarding hard work.
Oyetola urged the civil servants to see the promotion of Adewoyin, as a clarion call to serve the state by putting in their best towards the actualisation of the collective agenda of developing the state.
He said: “I congratulate the new permanent secretary on this appointment, which is a reward for loyalty and dedication to duties. His appointment is long overdue. When we came in 2011, Adewoyin was already a director. I’ve always known him to be a hardworking man, particularly when he was the director of protocol. I am sure he must have lost hope of becoming a permanent secretary, but nothing can be late with God’s support.
“This appointment, you would agree with me, is also a demonstration of our commitment to rewarding hard work. We will appoint more permanent secretaries and give priority to training and retraining of civil servants.
“Your promotion is strictly by merit and not by sentiment or favouritism. You have distinguished yourself as a dedicated and committed public official. You have remained diligent and committed to service since I know you, and this had been justified in the success you have been making in any of the places that you have been posted to.
“There is no doubt that you have shown absolute seriousness and commitment to duty, which has today earned you this promotion.”
