Oyo, Ekiti to Pay Workers 13th Month Salary

Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde has assured workers that his administration will pay the 13th month salary to workers for the fifth year running, noting that workers will receive the payment before December 31.

This was in spite of the fact that the government had paid the December 2023 salary and December wage award of N25,000 to workers and N15,000 to pensioners.

Governor Makinde made the declaration on Sunday while speaking at the Oyo State’s 2023 Christmas Carol Service and Nine Lessons Service, held at the Remembrance Arcade, Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, with the theme: “Unto us a child is born.”

The governor said his administration would continue to prioritise the welfare of workers, infrastructure development and other critical sectors in the state.

Noting that whatever success his government had achieved was due to the contributions of members of his team and the civil servants, Makinde said: “To my team, I want to say thank you for your support throughout the year and even for the civil servants. Whatever we might have achieved was jointly achieved.

“For four years running, we paid 13th month salary. And again, we will pay the 13th month salary before the end of the year.”

The governor gave thanks to God for his re-election, reiterating that his victory in the election was not due to godfatherism, but because of his absolute trust in God.

He equally appreciated the fathers of the faith for their prayers and support towards his re-election, saying “I also want to take this opportunity to thank our fathers of faith in the state.”

In his exhortation, the Prelate, Methodist Church of Nigeria, His Eminence, Dr Oliver Ali Aba, acknowledged the unprecedented achievements recorded in the state under Governor Makinde.

He said Makinde was a progressive name and that his re-election into office came at a time when the state needed him the most, adding that Governor Makinde sharing the same birthday with Jesus Christ is symbolic.
