The Oyo State Government has alerted the general public that some people have been swindling pensioners in the state, with a promise to fast track their gratuities.
The Commissioner for Establishment and Training, Honourable Adeniyi Adebisi stated this in a statement signed by Commissioner for Information and Orientation Prince Dotun Oyelade, in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
Honourable Adebisi recalled that the Oyo State Government has approved the resuscitation of monthly payments of Two Hundred and Six Million, One Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira (N206,150,000) as gratuities, adding that 92 beneficiaries were catered for in the last release.
The Commissioner explained that the Ministry is aware of some insinuations by some persons to defraud pensioners who are awaiting gratuities.
He urged the general public to be wary of such, in order not to fall victim to the ungodly practice perpetrated by the faceless group of people.
