Ogun State not owing workers’ salaries, pensions, says finance commissioner
Ogun State government has explained that it is not indebted to its workers.
The state Commissioner for Finance, Wale Oshinowo, disclosed this to The Guardian yesterday.
He said the clarification became necessary to clear the falsehood that the state is one of the debtor states in the country.
Oshinowo said contrary to some misleading reports, Ogun State is not indebted to the civil servants, both in salary arrears and pensions.
He disclosed that the state paid the workers December 2017 salaries in the second week of the month, including bonus.
He explained: “Workers in the various categories and strata of the civil service have been paid their salaries up till December 2017. The state government also complemented the payments with Christmas bonus. This was done to motivate and boost the workers morale.
