The Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, has approved the payment of another batch of half salary arrears owed by the administration of one of his predecessors, Rauf Aregbesola.
This is part of the governor’s efforts to settle the salary debts of state workers and support them in line with a 2022 governorship campaign promise.
The new settlement of half-salary arrears would be the third by the governor in line with the template issued early this year to pay the debts on a quarterly basis.
The administration has paid those of the first and second quarters while workers are to receive the third quarter payment alongside their July salary.
The governor has also restated his commitment to the faithful implementation of the template for the payment of the inherited salary arrears, adding that the template was a consensus among all stakeholders on how to exit the half-salary trope.
