The Oyo State Government has approved the conversion of 730 Civil/Public Servants in the state.
In a release signed by the Chairman, Civil Service Commission, Oyo State, Alhaji Kamoru Abíọ́dún Adéríbigbé, the conversion process which cuts across ninety-two (92) cadres, is the first of its kind in the history of the Civil Service Commission in Oyo state.
Earlier, the Civil Service Commission screened officers, through weeding tests and oral interviews across all Ministries, Departments, and Agencies in the state.
“As usual, the conversion was in line with the template of merit and competence introduced by His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde FNSE, and considering the existing vacancy disposition for each of the cadres”, Alh. Aderibigbe said.
Among the various cadres of the converted officers are the Administrative Officers, Accountants, Registrars of Cooperatives, Executive Officers, Nursing Officers, Agricultural Officers, Trade Officers, Statisticians, Engineers, Veterinary Officers, Geologists, Program Analysts, Scientific Officers, Social Welfare Officers, Store Officers, and Land Officers, among others.
The Chairman described the conversion as the Governor’s third-anniversary gift to beneficiaries and admonished them to reciprocate the kind gesture of the government of the Ọ̀yọ́ state by discharging their duties diligently.
According to the Chairman, “this exercise can be likened to new recruitments that would not only enhance the status of the officers but also elongate the terminal levels of some of the beneficiaries beyond their present respective grade levels”.
Alhaji Aderibigbe, therefore, thanked Governor Seyi Makinde for putting smiles on the faces of workers, pensioners, and the entire people of Oyo State.
