Level eight and above workers in Osun State Civil Service might have come to the end of the financially impelled half salary payment by the state government.
There were indications that the state government might have stopped the payment of the half salary to the level eight and above workers.
Payment of full salary was expected to commence from July salary, according to sources in the office of Chief of Staff to the Governor.
The state government had on Tuesday, September 6, paid June salary to the workers, with level 1 to 7 receiving full salary while level 8 upward received half salary. Three months leave bonuses were also paid with the salary.
Government started the half salary payment in June 2015 when economic crisis broke out in the state, holding the state’s finance by the jugular.
This year’s June salary marks a year anniversary of half salary payment in the state. By calculation, level 8 upward civil servants are owed complete six months salaries.

CityMirrorNews learnt that leave bonuses of April, May, June, July, August and September for 2014 have been paid.
The governor has also shown his readiness to clear the six-month backlog of half salaries of the level 8 and above workers of the state.
