…as 22 staff retires 

The Executive Chairman of Irepo Local Government, Hon. Joel Oyetunji, on Wednesday, assured the Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), of Governor Seyi Makinde’s continuous support on their welfare, stating that the Makinde’s administration has been prioritizing the workers welfare since assumption of office.

The workers have been enjoying good governance since Omituntun 1.0, according to Oyetunji, who made this statement during a send-forth programme organised by NULGE for 22 staff members who were retiring at the local government.

He added that the Makinde administration is different from previous administrations that owed workers more than six months’ salaries. 

According to him, Governor Makinde has been paying salaries to workers on the 25th of every month and has never for once forsaken pensioners.

While commending the governor on many of his laudable projects and initiatives to improve th welfare of workers, the Chairman noted that the Governor out of his love for local government workers ensured that they also benefitted from SAfeR packages to cushion the effect of subsidy removal. 

He explained that the NULGE staff, including pensioners were also among those collecting wage award of N25,000 and N15,000 respectively, which would be paid for six month. 

He said: “You will bear with me that civil servants have been enjoying the good governance of Makinde led administration since the Governor took office.

“Workers were not owed salaries as they get paid every 25th of each month. Both Pensioners and NULGE are also enjoying the good governance and also receiving wage award to cushion the effect of subsidy removal. 

“In fact, the workers have also been getting promotions since his assumption of office. It is a government of the people. And I pray God will continue to help us.”

The chairman, however, congratulated the 22 retirees from various department for successfully completing their 35 years of service and expressed his hope that they would live long enough to receive their benefits from Government.

He advised that instead of squandering time on frivolous activities or doing nothing at all, they could engage in any business that will keep them occupied and promote good health.
