Abeokuta – Ogun State Government has commenced the payment of N10, 000 palliative to civil servants in the State.
The payment is in line with the announcement made by last week by the Governor Dapo Abiodun, while rolling out palliative interventions following the removal of fuel subsidy by the Federal Government.
Some civil servants who spoke on the development in Abeokuta on Monday expressed delight that the promised palliative fund had started hitting their accounts.
They said that this showed clearly that Governor Abiodun is very much concerned about the plight of the people, especially state workers, following the harsh economic climate occasioned by the withdrawal of subsidy on petrol.
The workers expressed optimism that the state government would continue to prioritize their interests at this critical period. (vitalnewsngr.com)
