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

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 . ”
