Accept what we offer – Gov Oyebanji pleads with Ekiti medical workers

The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Biodun Uybangi, has appealed to medical workers in the state to accept the government’s offer to them and urged them not to disrupt the services they provide to the people.

The governor revealed that the government has agreed to some of the conditions they have presented, which will be communicated to them soon.

Governor Uybangi made the remarks while giving an account of his leadership during his 100 days in office at the Obafemi Awolowo Civic and Convention Centre, in Ado-Ekiti yesterday.

The 100-day ceremony marked “Keep Ekiti working towards common prosperity” was attended by traditional rulers, members of the National Assembly, various stakeholders, political associations, school children, workers, party believers, government officials and the business community, among others.

Governor Uybangi said his government has paid more than N300 million for 2023 WAEC exam fees to students and a N600 million peer fund to SUBEB for local contractors to be paid in the state and has agreed to put 1,000 teachers into the system.

According to him, what the government is doing is to make the school very attractive to teachers and students and stop capital flight in Ekiti State.

“Our manifesto rests on six pillars, which have been carefully designed to position the country of Ekiti for peace and prosperity despite the challenges of this season,” Uibangi told the audience.

Promising good welfare to the workers of the state, he said, “I have no excuse for the people of Ekiti for not performing this cause—at the age of twenty-six, I was part of the people who fought for the creation of the state.

I have worked with two governors, Otunba Nii Adebayo and Dr Kayode Faemi, which is why, in terms of extreme pressure, I am taking my time to see that we are doing the right thing for the people of Ekiti.”

On rewarding retired workers, Uibangi said, “I would like them to collect their money while they are still alive,” although he recently agreed to reward some retired judges in the state.

Uibangi added, “I will prioritize your well-being. We will do roads and lights and so on and that [things] That will support productivity and the state’s economy to develop.”

Governor Uybangi promised to launch an innovation grant to reduce youth unemployment in the state, encourage more investors to Ekiti State, and build more markets for people to market men and women to avoid roadside trade in Ekiti, among others.
