The Ogun State Government has announced the retirement of the General Managers of the State Television (OGTV), Mr Dele Bolujoko, and State Broadcasting Corporation (OGBC), Mr Tunde Awolana.
The government on Wednesday advised the affected managers to proceed on compulsory retirement from the public service.
The Head of Service, Abayomi Sobande, said in a statement in Abeokuta that Governor Ibikunle Amosun had accepted the notices of voluntary retirement of the affected general managers.
Sobande said the retirement of the general managers took immediate effect.
“On behalf of the Governor of Ogun State, I wish to seize this opportunity to appreciate the contributions of these General Managers to the development of the state and wish them success in their future endeavours.
“The most senior management staff of the two government Agencies are hereby directed to take over the Management of the Agencies pending further directives from the office of the Head of Service,” he said.
The workers of OGBC on Wednesday embarked on an indefinite strike over unpaid four months salaries by the management of the station.
Aside the salary arrears, the workers claimed that their pension deductions from 2012 till date, totalling about N50 million, were not remitted.
However, the workers commended the governor for graciously approving increase in the payment of monthly subvention to the station from N3.5 million to N10 million.
