Mr Peter Babalola, Chairman, Local Government Service Commission, disclosed this in Osogbo on Friday.
He said that the confirmation was in compliance with Gov. Rauf Aregbesola’s directive on the lifting of embargo on confirmation, promotion and conversion of civil servants in the state.
Mr Babalola said that the confirmation, which started on Monday with local government staff from Osun West Senatorial District; followed by Osun East; and rounded off with Osun Central.
“The promotion exercise and other staff entitlements to personnel due for it will be implemented without further delay.
“The ban on conversion, advancement, promotion and confirmation is to manage the meagre financial resources of the state and reduce the severe effect of the economic recession,’’ the chairman said in a statement.
Mr Babalola said that workers would now be confirmed, converted, promoted and moved to the next level as and when due.
He commended the local government staff for their endurance and commitment and urged them to continue to give maximum support to the government to continue to affect people’s lives positively.
