Gov. Seyi Mankind Of Oyo state Pays ₦180m Gratuity To 2013 Retirees

Engineer Seyi Makinde the governor of Oyo State, while conducting a symbolic presentation of cheques to some of the retired civil servants at the Government House, Agodi , Ibadan , he vowed to ensure that retirees get their dues from the state government

He said workers who had served the state needed the support of the state government.

He said the payment of gratuity to retirees should come immediately after retirement , noting that he was honoured to present the symbolic cheques to beneficiaries who finished the processing of their retirement papers in 2013 .

Seyi Makinde stated that despite the meagre resources available to the state, his administration would continue to bring relief to the entire state workforce .


He said....
 “ In total, 82 of these retirees will be paid their full retirement benefits. Seven years is a long time for anyone who could not work to wait to get paid their benefits. Such payment should ideally come immediately upon retirement and it is, indeed , disheartening that the previous administration did not do what was supposed to be done when it should be done .

Seyi said the state had a backlog of ₦26bn in unpaid gratuities for 6, 274 pensioners in the state , adding that his administration had been making efforts to offset the debt despite the limited resources.

“This administration remains committed to finishing whatever things the previous administrations have left undone, and these include payments of this nature . ”
