The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has paid the December salaries and pensions for government workers and pensioners in the state.
In a statement, Special Adviser to the Edo State Governor on Media Projects, Crusoe Osagie, said workers and pensioners received their salaries and pensions in the early hours of Monday, December 11, 2023, in line with the announcement earlier made to that effect.
He said, “The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has paid the salaries and pensions of workers and pensioners in the State for the month of December 2023.
“The Governor Obaseki-led administration made the pledge to pay 13th-month salary on Workers Day, as a gesture to appreciate the workers for their steadfastness and also ameliorate the hardship caused by the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.
“The 13th month salary is slated to be paid on December 27th, as earlier announced.”
He noted that the state government prioritises workers’ welfare, in addition to the reforms in the public and civil service.
