Workers and pensioners in the civil service of Oyo State are to receive January and February 2016 arrears of salaries and pensions within the next two weeks in a staggered arrangement, the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Olalekan Alli has said.
While January salaries and pensions will be paid immediately from the available N3.49bn in the state coffers, the February salaries and pension will follow within the next two weeks on the receipt of the next allocation from the Federation Account. This was the highlight of the agreement reached between the state government and labour leaders, culminating in the suspension of the over seven-week-old strike by the workforce, on Monday evening.
