Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo state, yesterday, said that he feels the state workers’ pains over the seven months salaries owed them by the immediate past administration.
Consequently, he has promised to set up a committee which will include the State Accountant General to urgently find a lasting solution to it.
Akeredolu spoke during his first day in office in Akure where a prayer meeting was organised to welcome him as the sixth governor of the state.
While appealing for patience on the part of the workers, he said that his administration would put back smiles on their faces soon.
Governor Akeredolu used the opportunity to plead with the striking health workers across the state promising to look into their grievances after they might have called off their one-week strike over non payment of their salaries.
