Obaseki Approves Date for Payment of 13th Month’s Salary for Edo Workers

The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has approved the dates for the payment of the 13th month salary pledge to workers in the State which will be on the 27th day of December 2023.

This was made known by the Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Hon. Chris Nehikhare, in a statement on Tuesday, assuring that the Governor has continued to prioritize the welfare of workers in the State and has continued to live up to his promise for better and improved working conditions.

According to him, “The Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has approved the date for the payment of 13th-month salary to workers. The December salary will be paid on December 11th while the 13th month’s salary will be paid on December 27th.

“This is in line with the Governor’s unwavering commitment to the welfare of workers in the State, which has been sustained for the past seven years. It is pertinent to state that Governor Obaseki-led’s administration has kept fate with payment of salaries. In this period, there has not been a default, as workers receive their salary on or before the 26th of every month. The same thing applies to pensioners in the State.

“This is also as there have been regular promotions, with the latest being January 2023. There is a conductive work environment across six hubs in the State and the workers are enrolled in the Contributory Pension Scheme, which ensures they enjoy Life Insurance Benefits among others. Workers have never had it this good in Edo State.”
