This was contained in a statement signed by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed and obtained by skyblast tv on Wednesday.

The Governor also stated that the action was a continuation of his commitment to workers’ welfare and a fulfilment of his pledge for the gradual rollout of palliative measures to cushion the effect of subsidy removal.

He said, “On the first day of my second year in office, I unveil this wage award and reaffirm our five-point agenda which has workers’ welfare as the number one item.”

Also, making approval in a circular issued by Sunday Olugbenga Fadele, a Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Human Resources and Capacity Building on Wednesday in Osogbo, Governor Adeleke said the step was taken as a measure to mitigate the impact of subsidy removal.

“Sequel to the negotiation meetings and interactions with the labour movement in Osun state, including the representatives of Nigeria Union of Pensioners, the Governor of Osun State, His Excellency, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke, has approved the monthly payment of N15,000 to each active worker and N10,000 to each pensioner in Osun state as palliatives to assuage the pains being experienced as a result of removal of petroleum subsidy by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The payment, as approved, is to commence from the month of December 2023 for a period of six (6) months,” the circular reads in part.

“While acknowledging and appreciating the understanding of Osun state workers and pensioners for their show of understanding regarding the efforts of the State Government in the last one year to improve tremendously on their welfare, being the first on the 5-point Action Plan, the present administration will continue to ensure its commitment to the welfare of workers are met at all times.

“It is expected that this gesture of government will spur workers in the State to be more diligent and committed to their duties.”
