Payroll: Adeleke Begins Workers Audit In Osun

The Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, has announced plans to fill open positions in the state’s education, health, and other subsectors.

Adeleke made this announcement on Saturday at the beginning of the staff audits across the state public service, which began with the acquisition of his biometric data along with the Deputy Governor and Assembly Speaker.

The data collection was preceded by a closed-door meeting with the state labour leadership where processes and procedures were firmed up to ensure the protection and fulfillment of the interests of all stakeholders.

In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, the governor reassured the state workforce that the audit will increase the state government’s ability to meet the requirements of the workers, the general public, and the state leadership while reiterating that the exercise was not a witch hunt.


The statement read, “I want to assure workers and other stakeholders that the staff audit is not a witch-hunt. Our administration has workers’ welfare as number one on our governance agenda. So we will not take any action that will negatively affect formal and informal workers.

“The audit is to achieve several goals namely cleaning up the payroll system, validating the actual number of state workforce, and establishing areas of vacancies across various sectors of the public service. We need to authenticate the data of our workforce.

“We also need to confirm existing vacancies within the public service. I have earlier issued a directive for the collation of vacancies for teachers and health workers. The compilation is almost completed. The outcome will then provide what we call data-driven management of our public service.

“We are ascertaining the number of teachers we need in our schools. Our team is checking out the number of science, English, mathematics, social science, and other teachers as well as which schools need what type of teachers.”
