Adeleke commence payment of state workers salaries
The newly-elected Osun state governor, Ademola Adeleke, has commenced the payment of workers’ salaries in the state.
The governor’s spokesman, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, disclosed this in a statement on Monday.
“Presently, the payment of salaries is ongoing starting with the Ministry of Justice,” Rasheed said.
Rasheed stated that about 45 state agencies are yet to submit their payment schedule.
He added that any Ministry, Department and Agency (MDA) that fails to submit its salary schedule latest today (Monday) will be sanctioned.
Rasheed also noted that any agency head who obstructs the process of scheduling will face disciplinary procedures.
“This warning is the sequel to a report that some agencies are still holding onto their agency’s schedules despite the directive of His Excellency,” he added.
