"Barely a month to the end of his administration, the outgoing governor of Ogun State, Ibikunle Amosun, has appointed over 1,000 workers into the state’s civil service.
He also promoted 5,000 government workers." https://t.co/DkDwgTeO6c

Amosun how will Buhari commission these projects still under construction before May 29th? I am sure you want to clear out some funds. No way these projects can be completed by May end.

You may recall that DailyAdvent had earlier reported that Amosun had, similarly, appointed over 1,000 workers into the state’s Civil Service and promoted 5,000 others barely a month to the end of his tenure.
The loan, according to Amosun, would help create a system-driven environment for business, needed for better welfare of citizens and good governance.
He said his administration would do everything possible to secure the loan, saying the incoming administration already had the support needed to enhance good governance.
He urged the bank’s team to fast-track the process for its final approval.
He also hinted that he has given approval for the release of the workers’ promotion from year 2015 till year 2017.
He will hand over to Dapo Abiodun, the governor-elect, on May 29.
