In spite of the dwindling federal allocation to states and tales of workers being owed several months salaries, the Lagos State Government has decided to appreciate workers in its employ by giving them an end of the year gift – an additional 15% bonus with their December salary.
A statement by the Lagos Head of Service, Mrs Oluseyi Williams, said the bonus would be paid along with the December salary any moment from now.
According to her: “Some states are owing their workers up to four months’ salary but that is not the case in Lagos. I was discussing with some HOS and they told me they are looking for money to pay their workers’ salaries. Our workers will receive their December salary any moment from now and I am happy to say it that it will come with 15 per cent bonus.
“Government appreciates your service to the state and urges you to continue to put in your best. Wherever you get your daily meal, it is good to put in your best; your reward is on earth”, Mrs. Williams said.
