“There Is No Iota of Truth In It” – Oyetola Denies Paying Civil Servants Half Salary
Gboyega Oyetola, the Governor of Osun State Governor has reacted to the rumour making the rounds that the government has continued to pay civil servants half salaries, despite the campaign promises he made.
This was stated in a press statement issued on Saturday by the immediate past Osun Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Adelani Baderinwa.
The governor also accused the opposition party of being behind the spreading of rumour, adding that they are trying to incite civil servants against the state government.
The statement reads:
“The government is not unaware of the rumour being spread by the lazy opposition members on the false and imaginary return of modulated salary payment to the workers of the state.
“The rumoured return of modulated salary remains a rumour and there is no iota of truth in it.
“Gov. Gboyega Oyetola had, during the presentation of 2019 budget, declared that the era of modulated salary payment was gone, and we are happy to reaffirm that the governor is still more committed to his statement of striving to pay full salary to civil servants.
“We would also like to state that Gov. Oyetola would not in any way take any arbitrary decision on matters affecting the civil servants.”
