Governor, State of Osun, Mr. Adegboyega Oyetola has restated his commitment to improving the condition of service for the state workforce by ensuring the payment of the New Minimum Wage.

I am of the belief that my supplications for the continued peace and the development of the state have been accepted by the Almighty.

“We have shown commitment to the payment of full salaries even with the economic situation. I am convinced that by the grace of God, we would be able to pay the new Minimum Wage with the support of all stakeholders, especially workers who are responsible for revenue generation.

“I urge all taxable adults to pay their taxes to the state as and when due. It is with this that we would have enough resources to deliver on our promises to the citizenry. We would work hard to achieve the goals and developmental aspirations of our people within the available resources.”

In his remarks, the state Head of Service, Dr Olowogboyega Oyebade flanked by the Heads of MDAs in the state, was full of gratitude to the Governor and his team for prioritizing the welfare of the state civil servants.
