JUST IN: Oyo State Workers Get August Salary 2 Days Ahead Of Schedule

Reports coming in from Oyo State has it that workers in the state have just been paid their August salaries.

According to an independent media handle @OyoAffairs, the state workers on August 23rd received their salaries, 2 days ahead of the regular date salaries were paid before now.

This report, however, has not been independently verified by Opera News although a twitter user @AdesolaJohnso12 reacting to the tweet confirmed this saying ‘I just received mine now. Thanks to God and GSM administration.’

This is said to be part of the governor’s campaign promises fulfilment to Oyo State workers to pay their salaries on time and regularly.

Seyi Makinde had promised during his campaign that Oyo state workers will be receiving their monthly salaries on or before 25th of every month as again continued to redeem the promise.

The governor appears to be taking some commendable steps since his assumption of office.

Recall that just recently, he had sent in his list of commissioners to the State House of Assembly.

Many had commended the composition of the team which is said to included young and capable hands including Seun Fakorede, who might be set to make history as the youngest commissioner yet.

Seun is a 27-year-old graduate of Obafemi Awolowo University.

This followed the earlier appointment of Temilolu Seen Asamu, a 32-year-old UK-trained lawyer who had earlier been appointed Commissioner for Energy.

The governor had also approved the payment of N500,000 each as bursary to all Oyo State indigenes at the Nigerian Law School.

Governor Seyi Makinde himself is one of the youngest governors in Nigeria at the moment at 51 years of age.
