Edo State government approves 13 months payment for workers 

The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has approved December 27 for the payment of the 13th month salary to workers in the state.

The state Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, noted that the governor has continued to prioritise the welfare of workers in the state and has continued to live up to his promise for better and improved working conditions.

He said, “The Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has approved the date for the payment of 13th month salary to workers. The December salary will be paid on December 11 while the 13th month salary will be paid on December 27.

“This is in line with the governor’s unwavering commitment to the welfare of workers in the state, which has been sustained for the past seven years. It is pertinent to state that Governor Obaseki-led administration has kept fate with payment of salaries. In this period, there has not been a default, as workers receive their salary on or before the 26th of every month. The same thing applies to pensioners in the State.

“This is also as there have been regular promotions, with the latest being January 2023. There is a conductive work environment across six hubs in the State and the workers are enrolled in the Contributory Pension Scheme, which ensures they enjoy Life Insurance Benefits among others. Workers have never had it this good in Edo State.”
