Osun: Gov Adeleke Gives Reasons For Delayed March Salaries
Civil servants in Osun Stae have been given a reason why their March salaries have been delayed by some days.
Naija News reports that Governor Ademola Adeleke has assured them of their March salaries in a couple of days.
According to the governor, the salaries were delayed because the state government is working towards making payment of promotion arrears.
Adeleke in a statement issued by his spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed in Osogbo, explained that the March salaries would come with the payment of promotion arrears.
He said it was the ongoing computation of promotion arrears of civil servants promoted without pay in the last four years that had caused a delay in the March salaries.
The governor noted that “The March salary alongside the promotion arrears of promoted civil servants will be ready next week.
“The compilation of what is due to each promoted officer is followed with due diligence to ensure that there is no error in the eventual payment.
“Governor Ademola Adeleke has directed that compilation, analysis and computation of the promotion arrears should be completed and paid to the affected civil servants. That payment His Excellency insisted must be made alongside the March salary.”
