Eid-El-Kabir: Edo Govt Pays Workers’ July Salaries, Pension
The Edo State Government on Monday, paid July 2021 salaries and pension to workers and retirees in the state, as part of commitment by the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration to workers’ welfare.
In a statement, Secretary to the State Government, Osarodion Ogie Esq., said the early payment of salaries and pension will support Muslim faithful in the state to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir festivities.
He said, “The Edo State Government has paid the pension and salaries of workers for the month of July, 2021. It is part of the State Government’s gesture to identify with Muslim faithful for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations”.
He added that the State Government will continue to prioritise the wellbeing and welfare of workers in the civil service, in line with the Obaseki-led administration’s policy of meeting its statutory obligation well before the end of the month.
Ogie urged the workers to reciprocate the gesture by remaining committed to their duties and roles in the actualisation of the ‘Making Edo Great Again’ agenda.
