I won’t renege on full payment of salaries if re-elected, Oyetola restates
Osun State Governor, Mr. Gboyega Oyetola, yesterday said that he would not renege on his promise of full payment of salaries and pension to workers and retirees if re-elected in July 16, 2022 governorship election.
He gave the promise during an engagement programme with members of The Triangular Group of Pensioners in Osogbo.
Oyetola, represented by his Special Adviser on Civic Engagement, Mr. Olatunbosun Oyintiloye, said those spreading false information that he would stop payment of full salaries were enemies of progress, whose minds are not always with positive development.
The governor, who said his priority is to make the state’s workforce happy and productive, said the era of half salaries was gone.
He also assured the pensioners in the state that nothing would stop the payment of their monthly pension, adding that their positive contributions to the development of the state would never be forgotten.
He noted that his administration since inception had not failed in the payment of the monthly stipends to the senior citizens, adding that he would not stop putting smiles on their faces through prompt payment of their pension.
Oyetola, who also urged the state workers to continue to support his administration and shun those who always want to turn the labour force against government, said he would continue to prioritise welfare of the workers and the citizenry as a whole.
In his remarks, Chairman of the group, Rotimi Adelugba, commended the governor for his usual prompt payment of pensions and gratuities to retirees in the state.
Adelugba said since the inception of Oyetola’s administration, pensioners in the state had been collecting full payment of their stipends as and when due.
