The Edo State Government has paid salaries and pensions to workers and retirees in the state as part of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s administration’s efforts to keep its promise of prompt remuneration to sustain the welfare of workers in the state.
In a statement, the Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq., reaffirmed the government’s commitment to workers’ welfare, ensuring that public servants and retirees receive what is due to them for their service to the state.
The statement read, “The Edo State Government, on Friday, May 26, 2023, paid salaries and pensions to workers and retirees for the month of May, in continuation of the trend of meeting its statutory obligation before the end of the month.”
Noting that the government remains committed to the welfare of workers in the state, Ogie noted, “The Edo State Government will not relent in its efforts at sustaining its worker-friendly disposition and ensuring an enabling environment for workers to perform optimally.
“It is therefore imperative that workers in the state reciprocate this gesture by displaying an unalloyed commitment to their duties and supporting the government in its efforts to transform the state and place it on the path of sustainable economic growth and development.”
