Adodo gets Edo permanent role

17 December 2013, 07:50Augustine Osayande

Abuja – Didi Adodo has been sworn in as the Edo State Commissioner for Establishments and Special Duties.

Governor Adams Oshiomhole said Adodo was reappointed based on his commitment and vision to reposition the state.

“Let me welcome back Comrade Didi Adodo to this Executive Council as a Commissioner responsible for Establishment and other Special Duties especially Non-Government Organisations and Civil Societies.

"I am sure those of us who have worked with him will readily agree with me that we have lost a lot in these few months of his not sitting by us and with us.

"He is a very warm, complete gentleman, rich in humour, absolutely loyal and dedicated and totally committed to our shared vision to reposition this great state and take it to the next level.

"Didi is one fellow that I can write his testimonial in the sense that we both come from the Trade Union Movement and having him back is like having your partner back,” said the governor at a ceremony in Benin City.

He said with the appointment, the gap in communication between government and trade unions would be covered.

“I also believe by assigning him to Establishments, the avoidable gap in communication between government and trade unions and the central labour organisations in the state and outside the state will now be a thing of the past and there will be more effective liaison and a coordinated attempt to issues as they arise.”

Oshiomhole expressed belief that the new commissioner would relate easily with the civil society movement and other non-governmental organisations, adding that Adodo had been part of the largest non-governmental organisation, which the Nigeria Labour Movement represents.

“Didi, I want to congratulate you. I regret the delay in your coming back but as they say the time you wake up is your morning hours. I need not reassure you of my readiness to cooperate and collaborate with you and we will do everything we can to ensure that your membership of the Executive Council will enrich the people of the state.”
