The State of Osun Governor, Mr Adegboyega Isiaka Oyetola on Friday 30th of October, 2020 approved the new Minimum Wage For Osun State workers and lifting of embargo on the promotion of state workers.
According to Governor Gboyega Oyetola, I pleased to announce that the implementation of the new minimum wage for Osun workers will commence on November 1, 2020. This follows the perusal of the recommendations of Govt./Labour Committee that we set up to work out the modalities for resolving all workers’ welfare-related issues.
Additionally, we have lifted the ban on Annual Salary Increment which was done in 2012. Embargo on promotions and conversions is also lifted with immediate effect. This is in fulfilment of our Administration’s pledge to give the welfare of our workers the deserved attention.
I appreciate Labour Leaders and the entire workforce in Osun, who are our allies in the race to deliver stellar services to our people, for their selflessness, understanding, perseverance and love for State.
You’re the reasons why, in spite of the economic storms, Osun still remains strong and outstanding in the comity of States.
We all know that Osun is passing through the valley of economic challenges and we’ve proven every inch of the way that we’re stronger than the storm. I therefore appeal to our workers to recipocrate our gestures by ensuring increased productivity and efficient service delivery to the people of Osun.
Mr Adegboyega Oyetola
Executive Governor, Osun State.
