Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori, on Tuesday July 25 approved the payment of N5 billion promotion arrears to the state workers.

He said the payment would be effected in three tranches from August to October 2023.

The governor, who disclosed this while addressing workers during his visit to the Prof. Chike Edozien Secretariat in Asaba, the state capital, said it was part of his campaign promises to workers.

Mr Oborevwori said the approval was sequel to a demand by the workers before the governorship election in the state, which he promised to pay when he came into office.

He said he had fulfilled his promise to the workers by approving payment of the promotion arrears and urged workers to remain committed to their duties.

“We know the money is huge; it’s almost five billion naira, but I promised to pay you and I have signed the memo and approved it,” he said.

Mr Oborevwori added, “You will be paid in three tranches from next month, August to October 2023. Continue to do more and work for the interest of this state.”

Earlier, the state head of service, Reginald Bayoko, who conducted the governor round the secretariat, expressed appreciation to the governor for approving the payment of the promotion arrears and visiting the workers.

The workers, excited by the governor’s visit, lauded Mr Oborevwori for being the first governor to visit workers in their secretariat.

Mr Oborevwori accompanied his deputy, Monday Onyeme, and other government functionaries.
