Osun State Governor, Adegboyega Oyetola, yesterday, said his administration had spent about N35 billion on payment of pensions and gratuities of retired workers in the state since 2018.

The governor also hinted that the administration had consistently released N509 million on a monthly basis to cater for pensioners under the old pension scheme, while not leaving out those on the contributory pension scheme.


He reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to continuously uplift the standard of living of all categories of workers by taking their welfare as the topmost priority.

Oyetola said these after presenting bond certificates to some retirees in the state, during the special lecture organised by the civil servants through the office of the Head of Service to celebrate Osun 2021 Civil Service Week at the Staff Development Centre, State Government Secretariat, Osogbo.

The governor, who urged the beneficiaries of the bonds to be prudent in spending their hard-earned money, said it behoves them to utilise the resources well by investing in productive ventures that will bring value to their families.
