Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has announced the approval of 13th month salary to civil servants in the state.
This was disclosed at the state’s 2021 Christmas Carol of Nine Lessons, held at the Remembrance Arcade, Government House, Agodi, Ibadan, Oyo state.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Taiwo Adisa, according to Leadership on Monday, quoted Governor Makinde as saying that civil servants in the state will receive the 13th-month bonus on December 27th.
“I want to give a glimpse of what we are trying to do. Some have criticised me on the Independent Power Plant project but I will still reiterate that Oyo State will have its own power plant. And from that we will expand it to industries and households as we move along.
“I want to thank you all for the support you have given us so far. I also want to appreciate our market women.
“Last week, I heard complains that people did not come to the market to patronise you.
“Anyway, last Friday, we paid December salaries so that people can come to buy things from you.
“But if you think you don’t want to spend it because of the fear of where to get another money, don’t worry, you will receive your 13th-month bonus on the 27th, which you can use for the New Year celebration,” Makinde said.
