Unpaid Salaries: We are yet to recover from Covid-19 – Ondo Govt tells Workers

The ondo state government has said governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is worried that despite his efforts to make workers of the state happy with timely payment of salaries, the current economic realities had not allowed him fulfil that responsibility.

The Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Princess Oladunni Odu, stated this at a forum in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

Odu said: “Governor Akeredolu and the state government will leave this state better than we met it.

At the Forum

“Yes, we have our lapses and weaknesses because we have not been able to pay four months salary and if the Governor were here today, he would say it because he feels pained that he can not pay salaries as and when due.

“It is because we were not prepared for covid-19. Covid came and everything went down and we are yet to recover from covid-19.

“You will remember when Governor Akeredolu came on board, he met seven months salary arrears and with within a short time, he did pay six months of the seven months arrears.

“The Governor believes a labourer deserves his wages and the wages should be paid as and when due but he had promises at several fora that he would not leave the state without paying all the salaries to Workers.”
