Gov Adeleke Clears Half Salary Debt To Osun Workers

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has paid another set of half salary debt owed to civil servants.

RovingNaija News reports that the arrears were incurred by the Rauf Aregbesola administration.

During the Adegboyega Oyetola administration, no effort was taken to offset the salary backlog.

According to a statement signed by the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, this is making it the fourth such payments since the inception of Adeleke’s administration.

The statement, which revealed that Governor Adeleke had previously approved a phased payment approach to address the 30-month half salaries debt, highlighted a similar agreement with pensioners for the settlement of a substantial N75 billion in outstanding pension and gratuity.

The governor emphasized proactive measures taken upon assuming office, including the issuance of a circular on phased payment by the Head of Service under his directive

“I revealed in several rallies last year that our administration would swing to action and activate the payment process once elected.

“I acted when we assumed office and we came up with a circular on the phased payment issued by the Head of Service on my instruction.

“I want to assure workers that we will stick to the circular. The implementation will continue unabated alongside other welfare packages for both active workers and retirees.

“I am committed to the implementation of the payment of palliative allowances recently approved by me for both workers and pensioners across the state, including local government workers,” Adeleke said.
