Akinwunmi Ambode

In line with his commitment to improve the welfare of the state workforce, Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode has approved the lump sum payment of leave allowance to all staff in the State’s mainstream Civil Service, Local Governments and the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) with effect from May, 2016.
The State Head of Service, Mrs. Olabowale Ademola in a circular she issued on Thursday in Alausa, Ikeja, explained that the approval was sequel to agreements reached during a meeting with the Lagos State Public Service Joint Negotiating Council (JNC).

She said, “Consequently, leave allowance which is 10 per cent of Annual Basic Salary would henceforth be payable once annually and no longer on a monthly basis. The payments would be in batches”.

Ademola said that Officers between Grade Levels 1 and 8 would be paid in May, Officers between Grade Levels 9 and 12 would be paid in July; Officers between Grade Levels 13 and 14 would be paid in September while Officers between Grade Levels 15 and 17 would get their annual leave allowances in October.

She said that the gesture was in furtherance of the State Government’s commitment to the welfare of its workforce, just as she tasked the staff to reciprocate Government’s gesture by renewing their dedication and commitment to duty through improved service delivery to the citizenry.

“The above listed Government Functionaries are hereby enjoined to take note of this approval. I implore you to eschew disloyalty, indiscipline, nonchalant attitude and low productivity.” Mrs. Ademola said
