The Osun State House of Assembly has lifted the suspension placed on the staff audit of workers in the employment of the state government.
To this end, the assembly directed the consultant handling the staff audit, Sally Tibbot, to continue with the exercise.
Speaker of the House of Assembly, Adewale Egbedun,m, disclosed this in a statement issued and signed by his media aide, Olamide Tiamiyu, which was made available to journalists on Saturday.
The speaker in the statement, stated that the decision of the House followed the resolution of the minor differences between the labour and the consultant.
Egbedun said the House look forward to a seamless exercise going forward, while demanding strict adherence to rules of engagement and professionalism from the consultant.
He enjoined all the civil servants who are yet to undergo the screening exercise to give maximum cooperation while undergoing the verification, emphasizing that the exercise is not in anyway aimed at witch-hunting anybody but to get rid of ghost workers in the state’s employ.
The Speaker reiterated the resolve of the House to continue to make meaningful interventions in state affairs, vowing to deploy its oversight functions in making sure that Osun people get benefits for resources.
It would be recalled that the Assembly had directed the consultant handling the staff audit, Sally Tibbot Consulting, to suspend the process following disagreement between the workers and the consultant.
Civil servants had on two different occasions had disagreement with the consultant on the mode of the auditing and other issues.
