The Ogun government has said that it has paid workers their December and 13th month salaries.

This was made known by Mr Wale Osinowo, the Ogu state Commissioner for Finance.

Osinowo said this while defending the ministry’s 2018 budget estimate before the House Committee on Finance and Appropriation, in Abeokuta.

According to Punch, the commissioner said that the state government used the first tranche of the Paris Club Refund to pay workers.

He also said “On the Paris Club Refund, guidelines were set by the Federal government and the state government has been following it to the letter.

“When we got the second tranche, we used 75 per cent for settlement of salaries and deductions of workers while the remaining 25 per cent was used to execute projects.

“We are yet to receive the third tranche of the refund."
