The governor promised that the extra N10,000 per month for the workers’ support will start in August and run for three months.

    Sheriff Oborevwori, the governor of Delta state, has announced palliatives for the state’s government servants, who will each earn an additional N10,000 each month.

    The state’s 50,196 workforce will now work in shifts and from home, the governor said, adding that it is part of his administration’s effort to lessen the impact of the elimination of gasoline subsidies on the workers.
    Oborevwori urged them to promote fairness, equity, and justice to guide their activities for effective service delivery in a statement made shortly after the swearing-in of 26 commissioners as members of the State Executive Council on Tuesday in Asaba.

    The governor promised that the extra N10,000 per month for the workers’ support will start in August and run for three months.

    He explained that employees in grade levels 1 through 14 will work in two shifts, one group reporting to the office Monday through Wednesday and the other group reporting on Thursdays and Fridays, while employees in grade levels 15 and above will have their work schedules determined by the various MDAs in a manner that works best for them.

    The governor added that he has formed a committee to make plans for the distribution of palliatives to elderly people, widows, poor and vulnerable families, and persons with disabilities. According to the M.O.R.E. Agenda, we are honoring our promise to the electorate to make their lives richer and more meaningful. I am happy to announce that this government has taken strong action to enhance employee wellbeing, a key component of the MORE agenda.

    I have approved the payment of N10,000 to the fifty thousand, one hundred and ninety-six workers (50,196) in the state public service for the upcoming three months beginning in August in order to lessen the hardship our people are experiencing as a result of the removal of the fuel subsidy and the downward spiral of the naira against the dollar.

    Miss Orode Uduaghan, a daughter of the state’s former governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, responded on behalf of the newly sworn-in commissioners. She thanked the governor for considering them deserving of the position and assured him of the commissioners’ unwavering loyalty and commitment to carrying out the M.O.R.E. agenda of his administration.

    The following individuals have been sworn in as commissioners: Odinigwe Odigie Daniel, Joan Onyemaechi, Jerry Ehiwario, Charles Aniagwu, Kingsley Ashibuogwu, Michael Ifeanyi Anoka, Pat. Ajudua, Darlington Ijeh, Fidelis OkenmorTilije, Funyei Manager, Godknows Angele, Joseph Onojaeme, Emamusi
