Ireland based Nigerian Philanthropist and Human Rights Activist, Mr. Abiodun Falodun has made a passionate appeal to the Ondo State Service Commission, to give preference to the unemployed graduates in the state, whenever it embarked upon direct appointment of new officers.
Mr. Abiodun Falodun made the appeal in an interview with Ikale Voice Newspaper while responding to questions about high rate of unemployed graduates in the state.
He said that considering the fact that Ondo State has the least number of state civil service recruitment across the federation in the past four years, the state government should give special consideration by embarking on massive recruitment of graduates.
The Human Rights Activist said further “I also wish to make a passionate appeal once and for all that Ondo State government should embark on direct recruitment of officers, our graduate youths should be given priority, as many graduates here, perhaps resulting from ravaging poverty in our environment, are engaged in menial jobs.”
He seized the opportunity to also plead with the current members of the Ondo State House of Assembly to focus on legislature that would restore electricity in the Ondo southern Senatorial district of the state.
“I want to specially plead with our current members of the Ondo State House of Assembly to ensure a legislative focus is achieved to restore electricity in the Ondo southern senatorial district of Ondo State.”
“What that region need to get homes and businesses back on national grid and restore her economic activities is less than 300 million naira,” He said.
He regreted that activists that were supposed to speak for the people about the blackouts are either on the payroll of politicians or they are government representatives themselves.
