Ekiti State government has disbursed gratuity checks of five hundred million naira to more than fifty-two pensioners across the state.

Governor Biodun Oyebanji, during the presentation ceremony in Ado Ekiti, reiterated his administration’s commitment to clearing the substantial backlog of gratuity debts in the state, which currently stands at over 40 billion naira.

He informed the pensioners that he has approved a monthly commitment of 200 million naira for the payment of gratuities to both state and local government pensioners, pending the time when the government will reach an agreement on the modalities to offset the full debt.

The chairman of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners, NUP, in Ekiti State, Elder Joel Komolafe, expressed concerns over the outstanding gratuity debt and appealed to the governor for a concrete plan to fully clear the backlog of the gratuities.
