The Edo State Government has paid December salaries and pension of workers and retirees in the state, in furtherance of efforts by the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration to meet its obligations to Edo workers.
Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq., in a statement, said the governor’s decision to pay workers, mid-way into the month, was to support Christians who are set to celebrate the Christmas festivities.
According to him, “The Edo State Government has today, December 14, 2021, paid salaries and pensions of workers and retirees in the state.
“The early payment is a way for the government to identify with Christians in the state during the Christmas celebrations. Edo workers can now visit the market from today and shop for the season.”
Ogie reassured that the state government will continue to prioritise the welfare of workers and pensioners, ensuring that the state’s workforce is well-motivated and equipped with the right tools to deliver efficient and optimal service to Edo people.
