The Oyo State Government on Tuesday offered cash rewards of N100,000 each, to 34 civil servants that were outstanding in the performance of their duties.
The State also presented certificates of excellence to nine Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the awardees got the recognition during the 2018 Annual Inter-Religious Service held at the governor’s office car park in Ibadan.
NAN reports that 15 workers bagged special awards while 19 bagged the award of Most Efficient Civil Servant in various MDAs.
Gov. Abiola Ajimobi, in a remark, said that promotion in the MDAs would, henceforth, be based on performance and service delivery.
Ajimobi said that each of the recipients would receive N100,000 apart from the certificate of meritorious services issued to them.
He assured workers of his administration’s readiness to clear salary arrears within the next three months.
