Edo Govt Pays September Salaries, Pension

By Lucky Isibor

As part of commitment by the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration to ensure the wellbeing of workers, the state government has paid September salaries and pension to workers and retirees.

In a statement, Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, said the payment is in line with the governor’s standing order on prompt payment of salary and pension obligations to workers.

He said, “Following the standing order of Governor Godwin Obaseki for early payment of pension and salaries of workers in the state, all civil and public servants have been paid their salaries between yesterday, September 24, 2020 and today, September 25, 2020.

This is despite the economic setbacks that have bedeviled the Nigerian economy and other parts of the world amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Osagie said that the Governor Obaseki-led administration will sustain commitment to workers in the state, adding: “With the renewed mandate given to the governor by Edo people for another four years in office, the governor will consolidate on several reforms being carried out in the Edo State civil service in the last four years, including world-class trainings for the workers, revamp of their work environment, timely payment of salary and the migration of work culture from analogue to digital platform for efficiency.”
