… December Salary to be paid Dec. 11; 13th month salary, Dec. 27

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has approved the date for the payment of the 13th month salary pledge to workers in the State.

Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Hon. Chris Nehikhare, who disclosed this in a statement, noted that the governor has continued to prioritise the welfare of workers in the State and has continued to live up to his promise for better and improved working conditions.

According to him, “The Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has approved the date for the payment of 13th month salary to workers. The December salary would be paid on December 11th while the 13th month salary will be paid on December 27th.

“This is in line with the Governor’s unwavering commitment to the welfare of workers in the State, which has been sustained for the past seven years. It is pertinent to state the Governor Obaseki-led administration has kept fate with payment of salaries. In this period, there has not been a default, as workers receive their salary on or before the 26th of every month. Same thing applies with pensioners in the State.

“This is also as there have been regular promotions, with the latest being January 2023. There is a conductive work environment across six hubs in the State and the workers are enrolled in the Contributory Pension Scheme, which ensures they enjoy Life Insurance Benefits among others. Workers have never had it this good in Edo State.”
