Governor Dapo Abiodun has released another N1billion as part of the inherited outstanding gratuities to pensioners  on the payroll on the Ogun State Government, to further demonstrate his administration's commitment to the welfare of retirees in the state 

The Permanent Secretary, Bureau of State Pensions, Mr. Adesoji Adewuyi who made this known in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, explained that the money was released to cater for the State Pensions which would be in two batches, with the first batch for Pensioners in October 2014 list, as well as the outstanding of Basic, Rent and Transport (BRT) allowance for the month of March, 2013, while pensioners with urgent medical needs or hospital bills would be considered from the gratuity.

Adewuyi further informed that the second batch of the gratuity would be paid to pensioners who were listed for November 2014, adding that the Basic, Rent and Transport (BRT) allowances for the remaining pensioners in March and April 2013, would equally be taken care of.

He appreciated government for its commitment towards the plight of the senior citizens, adding that the gesture would go a long way in bringing a positive impact to the lives of the pensioners and enjoined those who were still awaiting payment to be patient with the present administration, as it would soon be their turn.

The beneficiaries thanked god for sparing their lives to reap the fruits of their labour, appreciating the governor for keeping to his promises and prayed that God would continue to guide and protect him in steering the ship of the state.
