Ado-Ekiti — The Ekiti State Government has promoted over 2 100 local government workers and confirmed the appointments of 2,500 others, said to have been inherited from the previous administration.

Chairman of the state Local Government Service Commission, Chief Aderemi Ajayi, who made this known in Ado-Ekiti, said the promotion as well as the confirmation were for 2009 and 2010.

Ajayi, who urged other local government workers who were due for the 2011 promotion to prepare for and write the promotion examination scheduled for October, stated that the Dr. Kayode Fayemi-led administration was not only workers-friendly but also interested in ensuring that workers get what is due for them.

While explaining that the aim of the examination was to ensure professional competence and improve the performance of its workforce, Ajayi added that the promotions of workers according to section C of the Local Government Service Commission rules.

The chairman added that the possession of professional qualifications from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) or Association of National Accountants of Nigeria (ANAN) would be a prerequisite for the next promotion and appointment of Accountants in the state.

Ajayi, however, appealed to workers to support government's efforts at improving their lots as well as developing the state.
