The waiting days are finally over for civil servants in Ondo State as the state government will today begin to offset their two-month salary arrears.
Commissioner for Information Kayode Akinmade, in a statement after the executive council meeting Monday, said Governor Olusegun Mimiko directed that the arrears be paid today as agreed by the council.
Mr. Akinmade conveyed the governor’s satisfaction with the workers verification, especially the savings the government was able to make through identification of ghost workers.
The statement also stated that Gov. Mimiko vowed to punish officials involved in manipulations.
