No New Salary Structure For Workers, Oyo Govt
Oyo state government wants the residents of the State to disregard fake new salary structure in circulation.
A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Oyo State governor, Sulaimon Olanrewaju notes that although the government is working on reviewing the current salary structure, the committee set up for that purpose has yet to turn in its report.
The statement emphasizes that the salary structure being circulated could not have emanated from the State government and therefore should be disregarded in its entirety.
It states “It has come to the knowledge of Oyo State Government that a fake new salary structure is being circulated on the social media”.
“Recall that sequel to the removal of subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), the state government set up a committee comprising leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), the Trade Union Congress (TUC) as well as some government officials to come up with a new salary structure that would reflect the new realities in the country”.
“The committee was given eight weeks to report back to the State government.
As a way of cushioning the effect of subsidy removal on Oyo State residents as a whole, the governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde, directed the deployment of more Omituntun buses to ease the transportation worries of the citizens”
“He also directed that there should be no increase in the fare paid on these buses, while school children and senior citizens are to pay half-price.
The State government is still considering further ways of easing the burdens”.
