EXCLUSIVE: Makinde Pays Salaries Of Dissolved OYSIEC, JSC, CSC Members

OYOINSIGHT.COM can authoritatively report that Governor Seyi Makinde has paid the remaining salaries of sacked chairmen and members of three statutory  Oyo State Independent Electoral Commission, OYSIEC; Judicial Service Commission, JSC and Civil Service Commission.
This came few weeks after Makinde sent names of nominees to replace the sacked members to the Oyo State House of Assembly for screening and confirmation.
This, according to sources who spoke with OYOINSIGHT.COM, was to ensure that the yet-to-be planned council election record minimal hitches.
Members of the three commissions received their alerts last Wednesday.
While the chairman and members of the OYSIEC were paid two-year advance, their counterparts in the JSC and CSC got three and a year year salary advance. Chairmen and members of the commissions spend 5 years in office. Those in OYSIEC had spent three years while those in JSC and CSC had barely spent one and half years before they were shown the exit doors.
Makinde, this newspaper recalls, had dissolved the boards few days after his inauguration as governor, noting that “the state is aware that the tenure of members of the board has not yet expired and that the state government is prepared to offset salary and allowances payable to them till the expiration of their tenure.”
Chairman and members of OYSIEC had been sacked on July 1, 2019, sparking reactions and counter reactions between the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and opposition All Progressives Congress, APC.
Though OYOINSIGHT.COM couldn’t confirm the actual amount chairmen and members of the commissions got, a government source who confirmed the development could not however confirm  whether or not members of the OYSIEC will continue their case in court.
