Former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore has urged workers in the state to continue to persevere saying that the end of their travails under the current administration in the state is already in sight.
Omisore stated this while felicitating with workers on the celebration of Workers’ Day today in a statement made available to DAILY POST.
The former Deputy Governor described Osun state as one of the best in the country, adding that despite the little workers are are getting in return for their services, they still excel in their efforts to make the state great, and that their level of productivity is second to none.
He assured the workers that the regime of half salaries popular known as “Afusa” and other agonies they are presently suffering “will soon become history”.
Omisore said, “As the Lord told Moses at the bank of Red Sea that the Israelites would see no more Pharaoh and his chariots a promise which came to pass, so shall Osun State workers shall no more feel their present pains after the coming election”.
He stated further that it’s painful that workers who are one of the bedrocks of the state economy, are this shabbily treated by a government that promised them so much during it’s electioneering campaign.
“Since the inception of the current administration workers in Osun have been treated with unprecedented disdain and disrespect, the situation of pensioners in the state is another sorry case”.
He, however, assured workers that there is light after a dark tunnel adding that the issues of “outstanding salaries, promotions, and pensions would be addressed God’s willing if elected in the coming election”.
Omisore said, “God used some of us to put smiles in the faces of the workers of the state in the past, am very sure He will still use us at this trying period of the working class.
“We have done it in the past without job lost it’s a familiar turf therefore not a difficult task to accomplish”.
