The governor said 50% of the allowance will be paid immediately, while the other 50% would be paid in January 2023.
He appealed to the electorates to re-elect him at the polls next year in order to enjoy sustainable development, which is his mantra of Omituntun 2.0.
He pledged at the meetings to keep working on the developmental demands of every zone of the state based on the resources at his disposal.
Makinde also promised the people of Ogbomoso to look into all their demands, which included the appointment of a new Soun of Ogbomoso.
He was however clear that due process would be followed in the appointment of the next Soun.
