Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, Ondo State Governor is keeping to his promise. Less than 40 days in office Akeredolu has paid salary for the second time - February and March.
The era of non payment of workers' salary may be gone in Ondo State. More so, that the Governor has constituted a committee headed by his Deputy, Arakunrin Barrister Alfred Agboola Ajayi to work out modalities for the payment of arrears of salary left behind by Dr Olusegun Mimiko the immediate past Governor of the state.
Recall that Mimiko refused to pay salaries of the state public servants towards the last months of his tenure making life difficult for the workers. But upon his inauguration as the sixth elected Governor of Ondo State, Akeredolu promised to always pay salary of the state public servants as and when due. And that he's been doing !
