Obaseki to Pay Salaries June 14 Ahead of Sallah

Edo State government employees will receive their salaries on June 14th, just in time for the Salah celebrations. This announcement was made by Governor Godwin Obaseki during the commissioning of the State Secretariat Complex in Benin City on Wednesday.

Governor Obaseki highlighted the importance of this gesture in easing financial burdens for public servants during the festive period.

According to him, “I have heard all the accolades about the minimum wage. I assure the workers that it is not a fluke. We are a very deliberate government that seats back to do our work. You know that for the seven and half years since we came into office, we have paid salaries on the 26th of every month.

“In cases where we have holidays, we pay our workers before the holidays so they have money to celebrate. In that same guise, we will be paying the salaries for June on Friday 14th of June ahead of the Salah celebration to enable you to have a good Salah.”
