Beneficiaries of the Federal Government’s Payroll Support Fund in the state have commended the Federal Government for initiating the fund.
One of them, Akinwumi Shina, CEO of Click-Go&D-Bytte, Okitipupa, appreciated the Federal Government for the gesture and urged both the Federal and State Governments to provide soft loans to companies in order to move them forward.
“The FG has done tremendously well with payroll support. They have been paying my workers, at least 10 in number, N30,000 while my manager has been receiving N50, 000 monthly. My company has been growing due to the FG support. COVID 19 has affected us badly, but now I can pay regularly “.
Another recipient, Fadeni Olajumoke, proprietress of Dolapo Nursery and Primary School, Ijoka, Akure, also had nice words for the programme, saying the money was not expected when it was given to her staff. “We really appreciate the government. The money has so much impact; if not for it, some of my staff might have gone, but because of the money, they are still with me. About nine staff salaries were paid for two months, while only two people have collected for the third month. This programme is real and the government is really assisting us, and we really appreciate the government “,
