Edo - Edo State has appealed to unions in the region to rescind their decision to go on strike.
Head of Service, Igbakemhen Jerry Obazele, made the passionate appeal to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), Joint Negotiating Council (JNC) and other Union leaders.
He said the State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, had demonstrated enough courage and commitment to improve the welfare of the civil servants in the state.
The Head of Service said that the Governor has virtually met all the demands.
Obazele said many officers have been called for promotion interview and commended the Civil Service Commission for their prompt response to clear the promotion arrears and he has approved promotion for officers in parastatals and promised that all who are due for promotion will be promoted.
He denied rumors making the rounds that the government would implement the sack of civil servants, following the ICTA report.
Obazele stated categorically that the said report was smuggled out. He maintained that the release of the document was not authorized by the state government and called on the labour and civil servants respectively to disregard it.
He urged the Organized Labour to send their representatives to the committee set-up to work out the implementation modality on the contributory Pension Scheme.
