Retired Osun teacher congratulates Oyetola on N8.3m gratuity payment


ILESA (OSUN) – Mr. Aniobi John, Retired Deputy Principal, United Primary School, Oke-Mobi, Iwara, Atakumosa East Local Government Area of ​​Osun has applauded the state government for prompt payment of his gratuity of 8.3 million naira.

John, who is visually impaired, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ile-Ife on Thursday that Governor Gboyega Oyetola had put smiles on his face with the payment of his fee.

“It was like a dream for me because it is a lost hope that has just been rekindled after waiting desperately for several years,” he said.

The pensioner said he received an 8.3 million naira bond certificate from the state government on June 2, 2022 for the payment of his entitlements.

John, who retired in 2016, expressed hope that he would soon get the physical silver as promised by the state government.

He said he had feared the payment since he received the bail, adding that receiving the money would mark the start of a new life for him and his family.

John said as soon as he received the payment he would use it to take care of his eyesight, which had been a challenge for him since 2013.

He said he was also looking forward to relocating to his home town of Nkerefi in Nkanmu East Local Government Area of ​​Enugu State.

The pensioner said he was dependent on friends, family and supporters who always looked after him.

He expressed his gratitude to God, who spared his life and the governor for remembering him “at this critical time.”

According to him, the girl who usually takes him is his younger sister’s daughter and they usually go out on Saturdays.

John therefore called on the Osun government to extend the same gesture to his colleagues, who had not yet received their rights.

The pensioner said he had suffered from glaucoma since 2013, before his retirement. (NOPE)
