Gov Abiodun Consents to Christmas Bonus for Ogun Workers

By Nurat Uthman

Ogun State civil servants across all levels will be receiving bumper Christmas bonus packages this year, ranging from 68% to 159% of their basic salaries.

Governor Dapo Abiodun approved the bonuses “to bring some succour amidst the economic challenges facing the country,” according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Lekan Adeniran, on Saturday.

The bonuses start at 159% of basic salary for Level 01 officers, with other levels receiving between 68% and 165%. Specifically, Level 02 officers will get 165%, Level 03 gets 135%, Level 04 gets 122%, and so on down to Level 17 officers receiving 84%.

In monetary terms, Levels 01-08 will receive N20,000, Levels 09 and 10 will get N25,000, Level 12 will receive N35,000, Levels 13 and 14 will get N40,000 each, Level 15 will receive N55,000, and Levels 16 and 17 will each get N100,000.

The Christmas bonuses build on other efforts by the Abiodun administration to support civil servants, including the N10,000 transport allowance being paid to all public sector workers amidst the fuel subsidy removal.

“The initiative builds upon the Abiodun-led administration’s ongoing efforts to support public servants,” the statement noted.

The government has also been working to clear backlogs of pension and gratuity payments.

Abiodun said the special packages are meant to “bring some succour amidst the economic challenges facing the country.”
