A patron of Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) Abeokuta North local government, Ogun State, Hon. Wale Bello has disclosed that the reinstatement of the former NUT Chairman, Oludare Ilekoya and the Deputy Director in the Ministry of Education, Mr Sanjo Majekodunmi by the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun was a demonstration that the era of victimization of public servants is gone.
Hon Bello disclosed this during a media chat with journalists in Abeokuta, the state capital.
He hinted that Gov. Abiodun has by this kind gesture restored hope of civil servants in the state by giving them reasons to be happy once again unlike the immediate past administration that derived joy in witch-hunting and punishing the workers unjustifiably.
Oguntoday report that Hon. Bello said ”there’s no doubt that our governor has restored the hope of the civil servants in discharging their duties. They can now discharge their duties without fear or favour.
”The affected civil servants have been vindicated by the governor’s actions.
It has shown that no matter how far lie travel, the truth will surpass.
”Our governor surely has the interest of the masses at heart”
He maintained that Abiodun has put smiles on the faces of teachers and their families on the World Teacher’s Day.
”The governor’s action was timely because it was on Teacher’s Day when some could have been in mourning mood due to the sacking of their members. It is in deed a new dawn in Ogun State because we have a listening governor with milk of human kindness flowing in him.”
