Early January 2021, labour leaders had met in Abeokuta to review the implementation of the September 17, 2020 agreement, which covers the outstanding deduction from salaries of civil servants, outstanding promotion, gratuities and new national minimum wage

The state government in the agreement signed with the organized labour on September 17 last year to end a strike by civil servants, agreed to set aside N500 million quarterly as from January 2021 to start clearing the arrears of gratuities

The state government had put the arrears of unpaid gratuities to both retired civil servants on its payroll and those of 20 local governments at N68 billion During the September meeting, the state government negotiators said it will cost N24 billion for the immediate payment of the gratuities, and N1.2 billion for the underpayment by the Amosun administration
