Ogun state is unique as we have continued to engage and dialogue with the organised labour.‎ As part of our continuous discussions, we have both agreed that we should take advantage of the BVN system to ensure that our scarce resources are not going to ghost workers.

In view of this, we have agreed that starting from the end of April 2016, salaries will be paid using the BVN of all workers. As stakeholders, we are committed to jointly finding a lasting and sustainable solution to the issues raised by the labour movement.”
