Ademola Adeleke Ademola Adeleke

The newly elected Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, has stated that he will penalise any ministry, department or agency that fails to submit its salary schedule.

According to a statement on Monday, December 5, by the governor’s spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, the caution was sent because some agencies were sticking to their timetables after the governor’s instruction.

Rasheed added that salary payments have begun, starting with the Ministry of Justice.

Parts of the statement read, “Any ministry, department, or agency that fails to submit its salary schedule by today’s deadline will be sanctioned. Any agency head that obstructs the process of scheduling will face disciplinary procedures.

“This warning is in response to reports that some agencies are still holding to their agency’s schedules despite the directive of His Excellency.

“Governor Ademola Adeleke had last week directed the immediate conclusion of documentation for the payment of salaries.

"This was a consequence of a report that about 45 agencies are yet to submit their payment schedule. Presently, the payment of salaries is ongoing, starting with the Ministry of Justice."
