Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Tuesday disclosed that his administration has paid about N6bn out of the arrears of gratuities inherited from the previous administration, including those who retired from the state civil service in the last four years.

Governor Akeredolu made the disclosure while receiving members of the National Pension Commission led by the National Commissioner, Clement Oyedele Akintola.

The Governor said his administration has continued to pay pensioners their monthly pensions.

He added that salaries of workers and arrears of gratuities are being paid in spite of paucity of funds.

Governor Akeredolu promised that the state will continue to defray accumulated arrears of gratuities.

Arakunrin Akeredolu said his government has braved the odd to migrate workers who were employed from September, 2014 to the new pension scheme.

Earlier, the leader of the team, Clement Oyedele Akintola, commended the Sunshine state for recording a giant stride in the implementation of the new Contributory Pension Scheme.
