Abiodun extends N10,000 transport allowance for palliative interventions

Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has granted a six-month extension for the N10,000 transport allowance provided to state civil servants to alleviate the impact of the federal government’s removal of fuel subsidy. This allowance, initially set to conclude in September, will now continue to assist the state workforce in adapting to the effects of the subsidy removal.

Governor Abiodun emphasized that this allowance is a short-term measure, allowing the government time to formulate comprehensive medium and long-term intervention plans for all sectors of the population in the state.

In addition to the N10,000 allowance, which also covers pensioners, the state government has approved hazard pay for healthcare personnel, immediate issuance of promotion letters for 2021 and 2022, disbursement of leave bonuses for public servants for March and April 2023, and prompt funding for quarterly pensioner gratuities.

Governor Abiodun highlighted that Ogun State pioneered the introduction of the E-Mobility and Gas Mobility Programme, featuring vehicles powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and electric tricycles and motorcycles (Okada).

Abiodun mentioned that the distribution of these relief measures has received widespread praise both within the country and internationally, with only a few instances of unfounded criticism. He clarified that these palliatives are intended for those genuinely in need, as it’s impractical to reach all five million residents of the state.

The governor also outlined his administration’s commitment to leaving lasting infrastructure projects by establishing a special committee for public school rehabilitation, funded through a trust. He further noted ongoing efforts to enhance transportation by identifying and refurbishing critical roads throughout the state.
