“I will not collect a dime until civil servants are fully paid their salary arrears” – Governor Akeredolu



Governor Rotimi Akeredolu

Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu who spoke in the third session of the 11th Synod of Diocese of Akoko, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) at the Saint George’s Anglican Church, Okeagbe Akoko, has reassured state workers of his commitment to their welfare.

He said that the previous administration owed salary arrears of N38.57bn, while N41.5bn was owed to retirees as gratuities; and has promised that his administration will pay them in full.

He also said he is not going to collect a dime until these payments are made.

He mentioned that the state is expected to adequately improve on the state’s Internally Generated Revenue to pave the way for meaningful development, Punch reports.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu said: “And to the workers, let me say it loud and clear once again that I am resolute in my commitment to make your welfare the priority of the administration. I am aware of your pains and agony. I feel your pains and what you are going through and I can see your suffering. But faith in God, I am re-affirming my promise that I will not collect a dime until civil servants are fully paid their salary arrears.”
