Aiyedatiwa approves N1.2b to offset backlog of pensioners gratuity

By John Odunjo

As part of efforts of the Ondo State Government to settle the backlog of gratuity of the state retirees, the state Governor, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has approved N1.2b to fully offset gratuity of 2014 set of state retirees.

A statement from the Governor’s Office of the Head of Service said that distribution of cheques to beneficiaries would be flagged off by the governor on Thursday.

It would be recalled that all 2013 set of state retirees’ gratuity had been cleared last year while 2011 and a fractional part of 2012 set of the local government retirees were also cleared.

This is apart from about N320m monthly, totalling about N2.7b yearly, that government has set aside for the settlement of all other categories of the pensioners’ benefits.
