“Ogun State civil servants’ dedication and hard work form the bedrock of the progress and prosperity of our dear state.

”Recognising this invaluable essence of workers to the actualisation of the policies and programmes of the state government, the administration has graciously approved the sale of high quality bags of rice at discounted prices exclusively to the workforce,” the governor said.

Prince Abiodun urged workers across ministries, departments, and agencies, MDAs, to take full advantage of the opportunity and embrace the good gesture by the state government.

Head of Service, Mr. Kehinde Onasanya, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Establishments and Training, Mrs. Lydia Fajounbo, appreciated the government for the initiative, which is one of the many interventions by the government to cushion the effect of the fuel subsidy removal for the state workforce.
