Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State pays N30,500 as minimum wage for over 101,000 workers on its payroll, Comrade Bayo Titilola-Sodo has said.

He recently revealed this while speaking with newsmen at the State Secretariat of the Correspondents’chapel, Mokola, Ibadan.

According to him, Seyi Makinde is the most Workers’ friendly Governor in Nigeria, and his state has actually paid over N13billion as gratuities for retired workers in Oyo.

He added that Oyo State has definitely never had the minimum wage issue this good, and the change has even happened noiselessly without any disagreement with the state government.

His words, “As a worker-friendly Governor, Engr Makinde pays minimum wage for the workers in the state. I have never seen a government which arranged the issue of minimum wage without any noise.”

“Oyo State is second to Lagos State in the payment of the minimum wage. We pay workers N30,500 for our workers. But for COVID-19 which affected the economic fortunes of the state, it would have been more than that.”

“He has also increased vehicle and housing loans which now stand between N750,000 and N3m depending on the cadre of the worker. The number of workers in the state is about 101,000 and we have 33 local government areas. The state has over 600 secondary schools.”

“Governor Makinde has paid N13b as gratuities for pensioners in the state. The IGR in the state has improved with the state making over N2.5b on the average.”

On El Rufai, “I will always stand by the workers. You can’t run a whole State like a private enterprise. You can’t just wake up to say you sacked workers like that. There is a process you must follow. There is no way he can win against the workers.”
