The Oyo State workers seem to be witnessing another round of financial crisis in the aspect of non-payment of salaries by the State government, even as the year is running to an end.

A reliable source told News Express at the weekend that the last salary received by majority of the civil servants was for September, adding that payment for October, November has not been made up to date.

The source, a worker in the government ministry, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said “The last salary that was paid was for September. We are being owed October and November salaries. But recently, the government began the payment of October salaries to council workers.”

“I cannot confirm when the entire state workforce will get October salaries or if the state government will pay our salaries up to December by Christmas time.”

Meanwhile, an MoU has been earlier signed between the National Labour Congress of the State chapter and State government concerning the issue of payment strategy. The NLC, in the MoU agreed upon, insisted that the government should pay half salary if enough allocation was not forthcoming into the State's treasury, until there is enough revenue coming into the coffers of the state.

The source however argued that “Now that the APC is in power, the allocation has been consistent and I think the government should jettison the idea of half or non-payment. We now expect regular payment of salary since the state is now witnessing enough allocation. But it is a pity that the government is still adamant in the use of the MoU.”

The source, in a related development, also revealed that the State government is embarking on a measure which would determine payment of workers in the state.

The source said that "the government wants all the workers to present their original school certificates before they could be paid. And failure to do this, the implication is non-payment. But many of us who are NCE holders of the Oyo State College of Education have not gotten our original certificates.

“We went to the school management to request for it but we were not given as it was unavailable yet.”

The same source also disclosed to News Express that the Governor of the State has directed all the Permanent Secretaries to communicate to all the Heads of Departments to warn all the staff members not to speak to newsmen on matters going on in the present administration.
