278 Civil Servant in the State.
The State Commissioner for Finance and Economic Development, Hon.
Akintunde Oyebode who made this known in Ado Ekiti, said that sums
ranging from N80,000 to N1,5million was disbursed to the beneficiaries
of the loan scheme depending on their respective grade level.
Giving a breakdown of the loan disbursement, Hon. Oyebode listed the
number of loan recipients to include 41 workers between grade levels
02 to 06, 96 officers on grade level 07 to 10, 134 officers on grade
levels 12-14, 6 on between 15 and 17 while one of the beneficiaries is
on consolidated salary.
Describing the development as a reflection of the commitment of the
Fayemi led administration to the welfare of workers; Oyebode noted
that government has continued to fund loan schemes for its employees
in spite of the paucity of funds in the State occasioned by the
general economic downturn and dwindling allocation from the federation
account as well as the effect of the recent global pandemic.
He urged the beneficiaries to judiciously utilize the money and
cautioned them against spending the loan on things that would not add
values to their lives.
The Commissioner also charged workers to reciprocate government’s
gesture by rededicating themselves to their duties and support the
administration’s efforts to develop the State.
